After not having been to London for over 5 years, I’ll be going not once…. not twice… but three times this month! First stop is tomorrow morning, to go see Spiritualized perform their seminal ‘Ladies and Gentlemen we are floating in space’ with choir and horns. I think I listened to that disc for a full 9 months when I got it.

So, recommendation time – give me your best record stores in London please!


  1. Sister Ray, 34-35 Berwick Street in Soho is pretty good.

  5. for common mainstream stuff, Fopp has a decent selection and lots of cut-price stuff. I forget the address, Google it.

    I feel like the only person who doesn’t get that album at all. I had a copy bought for me by a friend. I’ve listened to it four or five times, conscientiously trying to recognize it as the mind-blowing piece of awesome everyone says it is. Every time it fades immediately into my memory as unexceptionable background music. What the hell am I missing?!
