Revolution Records' Epilogue, and a Night in Cambridge - 27-28th January 2006

The tragic demise of Nosher's beloved independent record shop Revolution Records, in Diss, comes to completion, with the final-ever day. Although it had already pretty much stopped moving new stock several days ago, it remained open for a little while longer to sell the remains of the second-hand department and some of the fixtures-and-fittings. Inside, Mark did some stock-taking whilst Wes showed Nosher some photos of the old Harleston shop and his time on the steps of Abbey Road studios. Despite not having a turntable, I even ended up buying about 10 vinyl albums which had some sort of personal relevance. On a cheerier note, the night before was a return to the pubs of Cambridge and Isobel's penthouse pad for a "Kismet" curry plus several beers and a session on guitar...
