Resident was opened in 2004 by friends and family that wanted to give their Brighton hometown the kind of record shop that they felt it deserved after years of working for the soulless chains. Resident has since become a well established & essential part of Brighton's vibrant music scene, located in the heart of the city's bohemian shopping area.
Run by a bunch of friendly, welcoming & passionate music lovers / geeks, they provide a massive choice of new releases across all genres, an extensive, quality back catalogue & heaps of bargains. They often have limited editions, free bonus discs, and indie exclusives. They sell tickets for all the local venues (in the shop or by phone only - not online unfortunately). They also host instores, provide a great weekly mailout & offer musical guidance & cheery smiles.
