"I grew up with records as a child. It was that and tapes, a lot of them!!! One of the first ones I remember buying though would probably be some late 90’s french house or hip hop (like Daft St germain and / or most likely Iam or Mc Solaar)!"
"You get to speak the universal language that is music with everyone that comes in. You get to hear what music means so much to them and why. If you don't head home with a full heart, I don't think you've done it right." – Sam
"I love records and music but maybe I forgot about the connection people have with music. We had a girl lose her mind when we said we had some Elliot Smith in store. That made my day." – Paul
"We have just celebrated our 3rd birthday. Customers have become crazier, wait, maybe it's me who's becoming crazier. I haven't noticed a huge change in customers so far."
"I think the first record I remember owning was the 7” single of I See Red by Split Enz. I’m not sure whether I actually bought it or (cough) borrowed it from my uncle Steve. Later I do remember being gifted such gems as Choose 85." - Adam
"My Auntie bought me ABBA, The Singles gatefold double LP when I was five or six years old. Many rainy days of my Scottish childhood were spent singing and dancing to that record." - Kirsty
"So many people have performed here, it’s hard to think of one. Kim Salmon was my favourite. But I can’t mention him twice can I? Oh well - Kim Salmon must’ve been ’95. It’s really easy for people to be a bit polite during in-store performances, but he gave full effort. It was the most energetic one, it was like a proper gig."
"I’ve got an original Australian pressing of The Zombies - Odessey and Oracle, which is both my most expensive and most cherished record. I love collecting Australian pressings from the 60s, it’s fascinating looking back and seeing which records sold tons of copies here and which ones barely moved!"
"A representative from The Rolling Stones Museum in London popped in after the museum's curator saw an Instagram post with some rare Rolling Stones EPs. These are now part of the Museums collection!"
"I had some tapes like AC/DC, but most were copies! But my uncle Jack gave me a record player and I went to Wally's Rock House in Warrnambool and got Bored! self-titled EP after seeing their film clip on Rage and Nirvana's "Bleach" Wally had to order them in for me. That was in 1988 or 1989 I reckon. Been collecting ever since."
