What year is it?
I spent a lovely half hour at lunchtime today wandering around Basement Discs.
It's my idea of a music store.
Broad range of eclectic titles. Plenty of music dvds. And people behind the counter who know their stuff, yet are mature enough to have ditched the attitude.
There's also a huge coffee table stacked with back issues of music mags, as well as a couple of comfy old chairs to sit and read them.
One thing I hope they don't have is the new album by the Stereophonics.
It has what can only be described as a truly appalling cover.
Looking at it, it's hard to believe it's 2007.
Click here to see some classic album covers. Hopefully they'll take your mind off that Stereophonics album.
