The Vinyl Revival is a 43-minute documentary that follows on from acclaimed Last Shop Standing and directed and produced again by Pip Piper. It came out on Record Store Day 2019 as part of a gatefold album featuring artists from the Distiller label. It will be screened - appropriately enough - on Saturday, January 4 at Strange Victory Records.
It explores the renaissance in all things vinyl. We hear from passionate new record shops owners as well the established die-hards still going and thriving. We speak with musicians and music industry pundits, experts on culture and music history.
The film discusses the importance of the record shop and vinyl as a whole. We answer the why’s of vinyl’s revival, the human need for belonging, the love of history, and the stories of how the humble little record shop has shaped so many lives.
Tickets cost £4, available here. The Screening starts at 4pm.
