Queues for rare records at Norwich store

A snaking queue of music fans formed outside a Norwich record shop this morning as it took part in an event designed to highlight the important of independent stores.

Soundclash in St Benedicts Street is today taking part in Record Store Day and is selling a host of exclusive and limited edition releases from a number of artists.

Among the artists who have contributed records to the event are Arctic Monkeys, Gorillaz, The White Stripes, The Vaccines, Jimi Hendrix and Foo Fighters.

Before the shop opened its doors at 10am a queue of around 50 customers had formed, stretching back to St Lawrence Lane.

Paul Mills, owner of Soundclash, which has been trading for two decades, said the event was important given how many independent record stores had closed in recent years.

The store is open until 6pm today.
