It was pandemonium

I was directed to a site about Pandemonium Records in Manchester. The owner has been an obsessive collector of vinyl for years but also used to have several shops around the city, one of which I used to shop in in Fallowfield as a student. Due to my own much milder obsessiveness I still have every record I ever bought there and some of them still have the price label on.

Yes I would say check it out if you are around the Newton Heath area.

I helped him out for a short while in the 90s. His heart is firmly the right place but I would call him and obsessive hoarder of music as a pose to collector.

The tales about him charging 50p for a browse on Oxford road are true. You might reach a stand off where is more happy to record something than sell it to you. Ring him first would be my advice.

I hope he is in good health and still trading as Pandemonium records.
