This is an independent film from an independent film company about independent record shops featuring music by independent bands completely financed by music fans and independent record labels.

The film charts the rapid rise of record shops in the 1960's / 70s and 80's, the influence of the chart, the underhand deals, the demise of vinyl and rise of the CD as well as new technologies.

Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Richard Hawley and Nerina Pallot as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.

Based on the book "Last Shop Standing" by Graham Jones.

PLEASE BE AWARE: This is a UK, PAL, Region 0, DVD Release (You may need multi region specific hardware to play this on NTSC equipment).

Press Quotes


Q (5*)

"See the film... You will laugh and cry"

Record Collector (4*)

"Last Shop Standing" should be an essential watch for anyone who grew up going to record shops or for those who want to explore the music world further deeper than what is online. These shops are a massive part of British music culture and this documentary further enhances the need for them to survive.


"Renowned musicians, industry experts and record shop owners tell the riches-to-rags tale from the boom of rock n roll to the steady struggle to stay open as downloading increases. Not only about a business but about the knowledge traded along with the vinyl this is a touching documentary about another high street staple in decline."

Louder Than War

"You are never going to discover Captain Beefheart or the 13th Floor Elevators or the Velvet Underground in your local supermarket, ever".

Richard Hawley

"Punchy & Engaging"
