Friend of the site Graham Jones, author of the splendid book ‘Last Shop Standing’ has contacted us regarding a new project: A 60 minute documentary based on the book of the same name featuring musicians, industry insiders and of course the real heroes of the piece, those unsung heroes behind the counters of the Record Shops we celebrate here.
Sounds great, and if you ask me is the sort of thing a channel like BBC4 would snap up in an instant and would be a great thing to promote the good cause of Vinyl vendors . Only trouble is, it hasn’t been filmed yet so Graham and his team need a few quid to get it off the ground. That’s where you come in. Remember how ‘Life of Brian’ only got made because George Harrison really wanted to see it, so he bankrolled it (and as Eric Idle recalls..the most anyone has paid for a cinema ticket). Now, you don’t need to remortgage your Mansion like George did. Think of it as buying a DVD in advance, and depending on how much you fancy chipping in you could even get your name in the credits, and invites to a swanky Premiere and you get to to call yourself a movie mogul because you are one. So, if you’d like this film to exist then click here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Last-Shop-Standing-Whatever-Happened-to-Record-Shops
