I was in Norwich a week or so ago. I went in to Fine City Sounds, a shop I have patronised every few months for the last few years. It really is a groovy shop, loads of intriguing records all over the place, well priced and a bit mad. The bloke who runs it smokes like a chimney. I asked him how business was and he said "dreadful". He then proceeded to show me a sign he had written simply stating that due to a dramatic downturn in trade he was having to close down. This upset me terribly - it is afterall the only real reason I will ever go to Norwich. I proceeded to spend about 70 quid on cheap singles (including a £2 South Africa Pepsi advertising single from 1968 and a killer Brull ten inch for a quid) and begged him to try and stay open. A week later I am still calling him, urging him not to close but I really feel he may well be doomed. So, this could well be yet another shop heading into oblivion, and even though Mr Beanos on the Beanos thread has stated it's not the internet that is to blame, I really believe it has masses to do with it. The internet makes us all far lazier than we used to be. This is the best shop I know for rummaging and digging about it, he's cheap, has great and slightly weird taste and has just the right amount of stock. So look you lot, if you haven't ever been to Norwich I suggest you go and help save Fine City Sounds. It's a good day out, and you may well be saving one of the finest and strangest old record shops in the UK. I really do think these little shops need our walk in help otherwise they will all disappear. Any thoughts???
