  • East anglia

    i was thinking of going on a record mission this weekend and i was wondering where would be the best city or town to visit in east anglia and what shops are there.

    i mostly am interested in hip hop and related styles. i live in yarmouth so the i was think of going to cambridge or ipswich or colchester or any where other than norwich that is not to far away. but i have no idea of where to go to make my trip worth while. any help will be appreiated. thanks

    I'm afraid that Norwich is probably the best place for record shops in E.Anglia these days.

    Having said that, Ipswich has two decent second hand places and a lot of charities:

    Ipswich Record & Tape Exchange
    34, Upper Orwell St
    Ipswich Suffolk
    IP4 1HR

    Tel: 01473 230207      
    Out of Time Records
    46, Fore St
    Ipswich Suffolk
    IP4 1JY

    Tel: 01473 225547    

    Avoid Cambridge. There is only one second hand place - Blackwax. This is excellent for old disco and new house releases, but I don't think you'll get much Hip Hop out of there.

    I haven't really been to Colchester in my travels. Anyone know if these are any good?

    It's Electric
    37, Crouch St
    Colchester Essex

      Don't know any of those ones - can heartily recommend Time Records tho - can't miss it - it's on the long road between the train station & the Town centre - on the left before you hit the hill. Lots of funk/northern/STs etc. Had a big hiphop section too - dunno about the quality of that stuff as I know little about it
