Yes I was the manager there Andy MacIndoe - I remember it well - what a hell hole but loads of fun - we had a break in 1 night and I attended the alarm call out - I got arrested as the safe key on my shop keys chain was soooo big and long that the police thought I had a gun!!!
I remember buying Bottom live on VHS from there.
Virtually all my record collection, through the 80's, came from that shop and I still have every one of them.
Bumped into (quite literally) Phil Collins in there!
I bought my first pet shop boys album from there with my dad!
1982. I queued to meet Paul Young there in 1983 when he was doing a signing for his No Parlez album.
My ‘go to’ record store, particularly in the early-mid 1980s. Most of my record collection came from there.
I worked there from mid 1985 until 1995, then moved within the company. It was a great place to work with great and knowledgeable staff
Lisa Lloyd remember when we met Paul young there and Phil Fearon
Clare Stewart me too, I was there!
Clare Stewart how can I forget!! We were in love!!
HMV opened the year that "Wherever I lay my hat" by Paul Young was number 1 because he was a special guest there, I met him and got the 7",12" and album signed! The DJ Gary Crowley was there too
Fav shop on a Saturday spent most of my pocket money in there. I remember they showed MJ’s Thriller video (1982) one Saturday before everyone had access to MTV etc. and the staff turned all the lights off in the shop. I recall a bit of screaming from me & my friend (we were very young at the time)
