Record shops of Melbourne

Published Categorised as Australia, Music, Travel No Comments on Record shops of Melbourne

There are of course loads of great record shops in Melbourne. However the prob­lem is that most of the stock is imports from the UK and US, and I can get most of it at home for much cheap­er. There’s also the issue of getting it home undam­aged. That’s unlikely in my luggage, when I still had to go to Tasmania, Sydney and Abu Dhabi, and send­ing things home from Australia is expens­ive, and it seemed stupid to spend all that extra on things you can get in the UK.

For example, I heard this record on the radio in Australia a lot, but it was a lot cheap­er to buy it when I got back home.

I did however get one record (that I posted home from Tasmania) because it was Australia specif­ic (even if the music is from around the world)- a collec­tion of weird synth music.

I also got some tapes, being easi­er to trans­port.


Also managed to get hold of this DVD from cult Melbourne band the Drones for my friends Mike and Kerry- it’s very difficult/​expensive to get in the UK, but I got it easily from JB Hifi, the Australi­an equi­val­ent of HMV (which is also their equi­val­ent of Curry’s and is an eye-water­ing shade of neon yellow inside)
