Of course one thing that us music nerds can do during the postal strike is to support local independent record shops – while there still are any.
I’m quite lucky in that respect – weeks after me moaning on here about the increasing uselessness of Stoke Newington Church Street, a new record shop opens up there:
and it’s proper, you know? A nice feel, friendly staff who are happy to chat, prices are reasonable, listening decks, all that.
They now stock Woofah and were very enthusiastic about it (a true sign of excellence, of course!)
Check them out and have a rummage while you are there – ask about their “reggae mondays” (I’ve not made one of these yet…)
