Clampdown: Record Store Day @RSDUK


As you can see, Clampdown Records on Paton Street sell secondhand vinyl and CDs. I had assumed that the shop must have been here since the swinging sixties, but it actually opened in 1991. The shabbiness lends a certain charm to the place. It's Record Store Day 
Go and support your local independent record stores!

"It came into being in 2007 when over 700 independent stores in the USA came together to celebrate their unique culture. The UK followed suit and 2013 will see the sixth celebration of the UK's unique independent sector... All of the independently owned record stores come together with artists to celebrate the art of music... Festivities include performances, meet & greets with artists, DJs, in store quizzes and many other events."

It reminds me that I must get Clampdown and other record shops in the city centre to check our old vinyl collection and offer a price. It seems there is a market for 1990's indie shoe-gazing bands and even the progressive rock scene of the 1970 and 1980s, which are the start and end dates and genres of most of my vinyl collection.
