“A record shop in a community is really important, I think. It’s a good place for people to meet, discuss music, and get projects going. I know most of the regulars and I know people from around the area, so I think it works really well, with a more personal touch.” Jon Clifford, Dreamhouse Records.
“I decided I wanted to open the kind of shop that I couldn’t find. Part of the important thing for me was to make this shop a safe space. I want to encourage females to come and feel comfortable in that kind of space. I wasn’t always made to feel that way when I was younger, I felt very intimidated, so I definitely wanted to create the opposite vibe in here. Anja Petitto
"I was born into the music industry really. My parents had a record shop in the 80s and 90s called Sgt. Pepper's. They had branches around Essex and East London, and I remember being in there most of my childhood to be honest!" Marc Sardinha, Hey Joe.
“So, the shop started by me taking out my van with my partner and selling a few records at festivals. Had the day job, just thought it was gonna be a bit of fun at the festivals and it grew from there!” Marcia Smith
