Quote from Kit on 05. Apr 2008 at 16:36:
I don't live in the UK, but I have a question for those of you who do:
Where in the UK should you live if you basicly live for music? Cities with nice record stores and lots of concerts and that aren't super expensive of doom to live in? (And also at least a fair chance of getting a job)

I'm planning on moving over the little pond some time next year but I've no idea at all of where I should live, so any help with this would be really appreciated! Smiley

 
 
Outside of London there's nowhere really with lots of record shops - they've all died out really. For example a city the size of Birmingham only has about 2 independent record shops and it's the 2nd biggest city in the country!
 
London is way too expensive but if you're into music it's the only city to live in really. Or live within commutable distance of London - that might be the best bet. Oxford is a cool city to live in and only 50 miles (or so) from London.
 
PM me if you want to discuss this further...

FOPP (2 of the 7 remaining stores), Avalanche, Lost In Music, 23rd Precinct, Monorail Music, Mixed Up, Missing (back in name, not a patch on the original - or Listen - though), Record Fayre, In Search of the Lost Chord, Rubadub Records... all still in Glasgow, I believe. Any current residents want to fact-check that lot? Records still on sale at stalls in Barras, Paddies Market, Polmadie Market. An hour away by train in Edinburgh is Vinyl Villains and Backbeat Records as well as another Avalanche and another FOPP. But gigs are few and far between compared to the Home Counties. However if you live near London you'll probably not be able to afford gigs anyhow. Tongue

Holy sh*t! Thats my alternate home! (Well, nearly anyway, I alternately live near Wootton Bassett.)
 
I feel sorry for you man. Living in Swindon is rarely a voluntary thing I've found. Tongue

I just remembered something yesterday. While I was in Chester, on the 4th this month, I saw a guy at the train station with a FOABP t-shirt. Was that one any of you there? I was pretty excited, you don't see PT shirts around here in Valencia! Grin

I'm in Carmarthen in Wales, so if you're local and want to say hello, please do. Only discovered PT a year ago, but am now obsessed like you all, both with PT, but also No-man. Would certainly like to hear from anyone who has the Henry Fool CD, or California Norfolk, because I don't!!!
