Original 80's edition carrier bag from Greenock's premier purveyor of post punk and vintage rock and roll badness. I stalked this shop when I was at high school in the mid 80's. Filing sleeves misplaced in racks, hanging at counter till last possible minute before teatime, occasional errand boy and requester of new stock. So much so they finally caved in and gave me a Saturday job when I was at uni. Doing pretty much what I'd done before but getting paid £10 a day to do so PLUS discount on records cost plus Vat!

After I graduated I got a job with the the then tiny Fopp chain, moved to Sheffield to open their first store in England, moved to London to manage various independent record labels and following that the sales and marketing side of an independent distributor. In other words having a fucking great time and being paid for it. All that happened because the good people at Rhythmic gave me a job. Literally changed my life. Thank you Andy, Bill, Billy and Davie. Amazingly Rhythmic is still open. So if you are ever unlucky enough to be in Greenock do yourself a favour, pop in, buy something and be transported.

Name Andy Clark Comment: Ah, Shady, one of the many greats that worked at Rhythmic!ic! ( Sept 15, 2015).

Not only did the shop supply records it was also supportive of local bands, helping them to produce and sell their singles & demo tapes, promote their gigs & selling tickets and was also selling local fanzines. Comment:Louie Pastore. ( Oct 10, 2016)
