In a change of format we showed the film Last Shop Standing, as well as spinning some vinyl.
This recently released short film charts the rise and fall of the record shop. It’s a documentary with interviews with the shop owners (including Jumbo in Leeds) and some top musicians (Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Nerina Pallot, Richard Hawley and Clint Boon).
The film lasted for about 50 minutes, so then we played 2 albums based around contributers to the film, Richard Hawley and Johnny Marr. We also managed to spin some vinyl that people had brough along with them in their independent record shop plastic bags!
The film went down well, as did the beer, the pakora and the music.
