A–Z of Record Shop Bags: 1940s to 1990s
Featuring over 550 graphically-arresting record shop bags, plus informative, humorous histories of the stores and their famous staff, this book reveals a previously undocumented side of British popular culture.
Bags from famous chains such as NEMS (where the Beatles were customers), Our Price and Virgin (the amazingly rare Roger Dean bags) sit alongside designs from independent stores run by eccentric enthusiasts. Packed with stories such as the first Jewish ska retailer, the record sellers who started Britain's premier soccer league, famous staff (David Bowie, Dusty Springfield, Morrissey) and equally infamous owners, these anecdotes of mythical vinyl entrepreneurs will entertain and delight.
A–Z of Record Shop Bags is the next book in the series by Jonny Trunk and FUEL. Jon Savage, author of the classic 1981 punk history England’s Dreaming, provides a foreword.
