The book charts, well, "vinyl adventures from Istanbul to San Francisco", the shops that sell things, the people who stock them, the folk who buy them. Texts, phone calls, emails and handwritten notes went out to a range of associates from Iggy Pop to Johnny Marr, David Lynch to Cosey Fanni Tutti. The results are funny and honestly engaging... and not just because we run a record shop. This accompanying compilation is recommendations of the great and the good in life from The Clash chosen by one of The Vaccines to Willie Nelson picked by one of The Clash. No rules. Cohesively mixing together Allen Ginsberg, Joy Division, Love, Tchaikovsky and The Modern Lovers has never sounded so easy.
Both the book and the album art is illustrated by Pete Fowler. View more of Pete's artwork here.
