Product Description

Product Description

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.

Review

'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 * * * * *

'True collectors: you'll laugh, you'll cry.' -- Record Collector * * * *


'A must watch' -- MTV


'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

Obviously this is of interest to fans of independent music and, in particular, those who like to buy vinyl records. However, the film is also of broader appeal as it deals with some of the issues of modern consumerism - the difficulties of anyone striding out on their own in the face of corporate and technological competition. With so many independent retailers struggling it's good to see some record shops fighting back and typically doing so with a technology that's decidedly old fashioned. The film is also well made and pleasantly succinct.

this film conveys the passion, the excitement of the record shop. You can also smell them, and it conveys the atmosphere that you'll only get in these palaces of entertainment and vinyl! it's made for those who reluctantly now buy their music from the majors and hark back to a time when local was king - loved it!

By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE on 13 Sept. 2012
Format: DVD
Overall I really enjoyed Last Shop Standing a documentary covering the rise; fall and rebirth of the independent Record Shop (remember them?). The DVD shares some of the characteristics of the shops it describes, i.e. slightly rough around the edges (the jerky camera work for instance), but done with obvious love. The makers should be praised for not only having produced a very good documentary but for also documenting - perhaps just in time - some of the truly great shops that still remain. What shines out is that these `final few' are far more than places than just sell music, they are important to their local community, somewhere where people can still talk face to face and share their passion. The DVD is quite short at 50 minutes, but considering what this documentary was made for this can be more than forgiven. Buy it now or catch it in your local record shop - and if you haven't been in there for years do yourself a favour and pop along today, you might just rediscover the true magic of music.

This is a good documentary about the independent music stores. And their will to survive. AND the survival of Vinyl Records.

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.

VINYL RULES!!!

I bought this just as my two oldest sons were 'discovering' vinyl. Lots of nostalgia but the characters featured make good viewing and there's a positive 'twist': Small independent record shops may well still have a vibrant future! Let's hope so. Prompted me to get back out there and start buying all the stuff that I should have listened to when I was a teenager! Really worth buying and watching.

Vinyl is experiencing a revival and I think alot of this phenomenon is down to the culture of the shops that sell the records. This is a lovely film discussing why and how record shops have been so important to music and collecting for years and why we should patronise them and keep them in business. Very cute film, highly recommended.
