Record Shops
  • Hastings is the thread, Rye is not Hastings, Geddit?
  • There's better independant record shops in Rye.
  • Lock up Rock in St. andrews market is pretty good, lots of vinyl.
  • Old and Gold or st andrews market , both so helpful but not the best at being kind a giving a discount!!!
  • Big monkey records trinity st ,back of Robertson st, Good for secondhand music.
  • There's always that golden oldie shop down the old town, but I recon every town has one of those cheesey places. I stick to Virgin and MVC mainly and that one round the back nr substance.

  • Vigin, MVC
  • Various shops selling new vinyl in and around Hastings, also Woolworths,Virgin and Old Town Music, excellent if you need the old stuff!
  • ummm dunno really but if your after old school stuff then go down the old town man, loadsa cheep cds tapes n even vinal 4 your pleasure
  • Used to be frontier but that closed. Little shops with about nine 12inches spring up sometimes but close in about a fortnight. Old Town Music great from shit music at discount prices.

  • Go to MVC Next to the odeon

  • Who remebers Disc Jockey, the purveyor of mighty fine vinyl in the eighties? Get the vinyl in the day and gate crash the parties at the Chatsworth in the Evening eh? A mighty fine chea half of lager before being thrown out !
  • Garage UK unfortunatly closed its doors to walk-in customers a couple of months ago. It was a really good shop - had a good selection of latest dark, 2step, 4-2-the-floor promos and test pressings etc. Darren and his staff were always very helpfull and would do their best to get help you out. They are still around and have a very comprehensive website ( OR .com) You can still talk to Darren and order records by phone on 01424-444944 and if you are "local" AND a good regular customer - he may even let you pick up your vinyl from his home - so no postage to pay!!!
