Comment: Rockers - before it became Swordfish and moved right into the centre this was a great little shop in Hurst Street. Got my first copy of Physical Graffiti here. I remember one occasion I was paying at the till when the ceiling collapsed, covering the guy in dust and plaster.

Comment: Many happy hours spent in Rockers with Mike & Gaz. The home of the original Duran Duran fan club. A memorable afternoon when Kevin Rowland (Dexy’s) came in with his manager and they repeatedly played different mixes of Geno over the shop's sound system to select the best one. Our verdict – not a hit: but I think it went to number one!
