Your guide to buying Vinyl Records in Newcastle

It’s taken us a while to write this piece. We don’t know about you but we’re still pretty torn up about the loss of The Edwards, in particular, the loss of the Edwards shop.

The question we’re still asking ourselves is… but where do we get our records from?

We’ve put together a list of our hot hits and where to get your vinyl fix.

SILENCE! A few new LPs just in and about to go into the racks. Message for prices and holds.

The Mosh Pit – Cardiff

Established in 2012 this independent record store fills a big giant hole in all of our hearts. Stocking both new and used vinyl, it’s a pretty bloody great place to get your hands on some tunes. They also stock a great selected of CDs and tapes if that’s the kind of thing you fancy too.

Rices Bookshop

Often overlooked by the record collector, Rices Bookshop has been the HQ for local DJs and hipsters looking for that unfound sound. Just the smell of old books and vinyl is worth the visit.

Lovely new batch of pre-loved Vinyl instore now. Pop in for a browse. #darbystreet #cookshill #cookshillbooks #cookshillbookshop #cookshillbooksandrecords #shopthiscity #shoplocal #shoplocally #NewcastleNow #seeitherebuyitherekeepushere #popinforabrowse

Cooks Hill Books

Yes, look I know it says books in the title but did you know they stock a bunch of great second hand vinyl too? There’s some solid gold in amongst the crates in the back room so why not take the day, weekend, week, whichever to go digging? You won’t be sorry!

He's on his way! Come join @kimchurchill1 today at 4pm! @famousrockshop

The Rock Shop

The one, the only, the OG. It’s not famous for no reason you know. Not only do they stock records, but they also pretty much stock everything record/vinyl related. Need a new needle? Check. Need advice on what to listen to and when? Check. Need some new threads to go with your new music taste? You never know who might pop up…

Check these out!

Just after the new stuff? Kewl. Why not head to Abicus on Darby street and feast your eyes on their selection. Just like the Rock Shop, why not walk out of there with some new threads to match your music purchase. #reinventyoself
