  • Another London record shop closes

    Walking down Berwick Street yesterday I couldn't help but notice that MVE has closed - as have all of the shops on that side of the road
    Looks like that end of the street is being developed - another step in the gentrification of Soho
    I can't say I ever got a lot from MVE Soho - although I have picked up some nice things over the years. But I'm always saddened when a record shop closes
    Now there are only two MVEs - it doesn't seem so long ago were loads!

      Rumour has it that they are looking at viability of opening up at another Soho location - but apparently we shouldn't be holding our collective breath.

        Same here - remember picking up this one in there though many moons ago:

          It was shut a couple of weeks ago when I was down that way. I'd completely forgotten. Never had a result in that branch, but always gave it a glance.
          Everyone tear down your own little wall
          That keeps you from being a part of it all
          Because you've got to be one with the one and all
          You've just got to be close to it all

            There's one in Birmingham as well. Bloody Londoners etc.
