Event Details

Sneaky Experience in partnership with White Cloth Gallery are very excited to bring you;


Last Shop Standing

 


Last Shop Standing takes you behind the counter to discover why nearly 2000 record shops have already disappeared across the UK. The film charts the rapid rise of record shops in the 1960′s / 70s and 80’s, the influence of the chart, the underhand deals, the demise of vinyl and rise of the CD as well as new technologies.

Where did it all go wrong?

Why were 3 shops a week closing?

Will we be left with no record shops with the continuing rise of downloading?

Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Nerina Pallot, Richard Hawley and Clint Boon as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.


This is not just a film screening but an evening celebrating the beauty of records themselves in the run up to Record Store Day. The film will start around 7pm but feel free to come earlier to celebrate. Expect lots of sneaky surprises before and after the screening, keep an eye on the facebook and our twitters for updates.
