    In other news, we have another great instore coming up by Sonic Cathedral signees Lorelle Meets The Obsolete on Sunday the 6th of April. Expect krauty psych shoegaze vibes, it’s gonna get loud in the basement!




    Last week we bought an amazing collection of US indie/hardcore from the late 80’s into the noughties. Think Fugazi, Shellac, Floor, Her Space Holiday, Minor Threat etc. These will all be put out during the week so keep an eye out on our “New In” section for second hand vinyl in Essex Road!

    Also, loads of mid price/cheap metal and 80s rock has come in. Get yer denim and leather on.



    The Beck LP “Morning Phase” which sold out soon after it’s released is currently being re-printed so we shall give you a heads up once it’s Beck in stock!


    And last but not least, we have a new sign outside!

    This one is on a Thursday but it doesn't change anything about how free the beer is.

    Check out their new single below, out on Sonic Cathedral. And here's the facebook event.
