This is an independent film from an independent film company about independent record shops featuring music by independent bands completely financed by music fans and independent record labels. 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. Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including PAUL WELLER, JOHNNY MARR, NORMAN COOK, BILLY BRAGG, RICHARD HAWLEY and NERINA PALLOT 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. Based on the book "Last Shop Standing" by Graham Jones.
'Crate-digging doc that puts passion before profit.
...This brilliant short film isn't a nostalgic exercise. Instead, Graham Jones, author of the book Last Shop Standing, takes us to the people behind the badge-covered counters, who explain what these shops were, where they're going, and why it matters. There's new stuff to learn too: about music-rep scams, vinyl's deteriorating quality until recently and how supermarket sales are as tough as downloads on these places. High-profile buyers such as Johnny Marr and Paul Weller are here too, but this film's handmade beauty creates other, brighter stars[...] if you don't well up when Keith from Chesterfield's Hudsons Tape And Record Centre (1906-2012) moves a shelf for the last time, you're not human.' --Jude Rogers, Q Magazine * * * * *

'Record Store Day risks tipping into tokenism by giving over just one day a year to applaud indie record stores. Here instead is the real and very human story of the people - obsessives and amiable misfits all - who man the diminishing number of UK independant stores. They display heart-swelling resiliance against the endless kicking from downloads, Amazon and supermarkets to keep our greatest cultural and community centres up and running.' (One of the 10 best films of 2012)--Eamonn Forde, Q Magazine

A pure joy to watch, since i grew up with vinyl, the local records store and went on to run my own record store.
Sadly we were one of the stores that fell on the "battlefield". But i'm happy to see that some of us came through on the other side
And to inspire others open up new stores.
full of great insights, powerful sad and funny interviews / beautiful imagery of record shops with some great archive and proper real storytelling: well done a great film

An interesting and entertaining DVD documenting the rise and fall of the independent record shop, with interviews with the store owners, well-known musicians and vinyl fans.Published on 8 April 2013 by Les Howell
This is an interesting documentary ...but I have to say i was a little disappointed with it. I really LOVED the book Last Shop Standing: Whatever Happened to Record Shops? Read morePublished on 29 Sept. 2012 by T. Satchwell
Think it would be more accurate to describe it as a documentary rather than a film as it is only 50 mins long but is thoroughly enjoyable. Wish it had been longer though.Published on 23 Sept. 2012 by M. Seymour
