Hi it’s Sunny, I’m outside ‘Sounds of the
Universe’ in Soho in London, I’m gonna have a little chat with a couple of people
to see what they’re hoping to get and what they have got and if they’re happy
so let’s go Okay, so outside ‘Sounds of
the Universe’ again and I’m here with what is your name? Steve Christie. So
Steve’s just been inside and he’s got lots of treats, what did you get Steve?
Well in ‘Sounds of the Universe’ I’ve got a good old classic Yazoo remixes yes nice
classic song bit pricey I was more to see again thank you yes one I’ve got
many of leading to flashback in mystics road and I’ve been into fond occur
opponents trees well and just be done bad 250 pounds worth of stuff everything
apart from the small faces I didn’t manage to get so if you would mind me
asking what is it about vinyl that you love so much and I’m guessing you
collect what is it it’s my job as well but just a sound it’s a collector’s
thing isn’t it is whether your clicks and stem so no football cards wherever
it may be but requisites my fingers musical ovens
I’ve always be fixing music and always been records I mean I still like things
like wave files and Impe freeze I don’t mind that’s so much boat speckle jump
differently there’s a better thing it’s nice to have a record in your hand look
at the sleeve notes is it the sound so yeah this more superior for me a record
soon so other than obviously missing out on the small faces are you happy with
your whole oh yeah worried about how much to spend but yeah yeah I am
definitely been a very successful year definitely yeah yeah and now them wanna
go got party in the basements are going to go there for this afternoon and in
relax okay so we’re outside
sister a more or less or in the queue what is your name name Simon and
I heard that Gary Clark jr. featuring junkie XL okay and get get together or
something like that his release today and only today so yeah have you do you
live sort of loco to be honest some East Anglia see I’m originally from Norwich
there all right we’re lost 27 miles away from so what is it about vinyl and vinyl
collecting and all their ways it’s just a physicality abut something rather than
a CD which you can play over and over again fine or like it just seems it’s
got more atmosphere just crackles every so often it can skip but but yeah it’s
just nice to have something physically yeah yeah rather than something small
which can get get last a vine on you you know you can’t get lost lose one of
those that’s great well I hope you get what you want basically in why your name Jamie Molly so we’re here
as Cicero why are you hoping to get today well I want to get there Boies
let’s dance on single it hasn’t been released on single before so I already
won that well I just bought some rare clothes but I’ll get anything MJ okay so
I mean what did you get if you would mind me asking what did you get
previously like it like it like it and then I got I just can’t stop loving you
from bad but on a 12-inch fan big fan then so am wait what is it about the
vinyl format as opposed to the obviously streaming and stuff like you know I mean
like you know pushing a barn on mp3 it’s just boring but like physically owning
music and looking at it and I don’t know I know it sounds like hipstery and
whatever but it’s just physically owning and having it in your house and looking
at I don’t know it’s just would you agree with that yeah it’s
proper old school I think I’m like born in the wrong time
I prefer find all in like the crack or doing it yourself okay so do you can it
is this safe to assume that you’ve you’re both collectors and you’ve got a
few I got a lot of um it passed down to me you know so science that well I hope
they you get what you want and yeah enjoy the rescue day thank you much so there you have it chair to a few
people for a less saying the same kind of thing in a world where streaming and
digital is prevalent there’s a bit of a rejection about it and people still love
the physicality of vinyl records and collecting maybe they really enjoy
collecting things so in its 11th year record store days obviously here to say
and long may it continue
