Rockers - before it became Swordfish and moved right into the centre this was a great little shop in Hurst Street. Got my first copy of Physical Graffiti here. I remember one occasion I was paying at the till when the ceiling collapsed, covering the guy in dust and plaster. Comment: Virgil Hilts

Many happy hours spent in Rockers with Mike & Gaz. The home of the original Duran Duran fan club. A memorable afternoon when Kevin Rowland (Dexy’s) came in with his manager and they repeatedly played different mixes of Gino over shops sound system to select best one. Our verdict – not a hit but I think it went to number one! Comment: Marcus Cale
