Vinyl Fever and Eastside Records close

Our friends over the pond are still closing down when it looked like all those that were likely to go had gone already.Vinyl Fever in Tampa, Florida (open almost 30 years) closed this weekend despite being voted one of America’s best record stores in Rolling Stone and Eastside Records a 25 year institution in Phoenix, Arizona closed a few weeks ago.

As you may remember in an alternative universe “According to the Entertainment Retailers Association, 15 new indie shops opened for business in 2010 – a figure offset only by the disappearance of a further four, leaving a net gain of 11.” These are UK figures of course. I have asked for a recount and will publish the results as soon as I get them.
