Comment: Visited once around summer 1979 - they were playing the Specials' Gangsters which had just come out. It was all very Mod Revival and I think they also sold clothes. The records were extortionate - copies of the Who's Brunswick singles at a fiver each when they could easily be had elsewhere for a couple of quid. Never went back.

Comment: I went to this shop a few times as a young rockabilly to buy a few rockabilly 45s. Rockabilly got big in 1981 so there were lots of good 1950s rockabilly 45s coming out; The Polecats [were] in the charts. By 1983 the shop was shut.

Name: Geoffrey Cox
Comment: I used to help out sometimes in this shop. It was run by Steve Weeks. It released a couple of singles on its own label.

It did not sell clothes. Prices were not unreasonable, but Steve knew his stuff so sold rare issues at their correct values. This was probably the case with The Who disc.

Comment: Well thanks for that Geoff. Good to hear from you. There were a few dodgy t-shirts kicking around but we didn't really sell clothes. Fiver for a Who Brunswick depends on the title...

I remember as a teenager in 1981 I bought a few 1950s rockabilly singles from this shop - there were a few good record shops in Battersea.
