This one is a little out of town, probably a 15 minute walk from the centre. Fairly well organized, although there is a lot of knock-off bootleg t-shirts hanging from the roof. Comfortingly not a shrine to "classic rock", they seem to be more of an indie/alternative specialist. Not a great deal of vinyl, definitely more of a CD dealer.

Movie section was very good, they had a lot of obscure, cult and arthouse type movies rather than just bland Hollywood fare, and was reasonably priced.

Staff were not surly, they seemed very friendly amongst themselves though didn't seem to be doing much more than grunting at customers, although the nice lady behind the counter seemed to smirk at the Godzilla DVD I bought. I guess we can't all share your good taste.

Rumour has it that David Cameron's cock is one of their customers.
