Vinyl Revolution - where girls will be boys and boys will be girls!

28.12.17

Like everyone we've read the headlines about shops selling childrens clothes and toys which are quite breathtaking in the way they stereotype girls and boys. It's incredible to think that in 2017 there are still companies which portray young girls as pretty princesses and young boys as geniuses who will change the world.

Independent And Proud Of It!

20.12.17

A lot of people have recently mentioned that Vinyl Revolution is a chain store. They couldn't be more wrong. Vinyl Revolution is just over a year old and is owned jointly by its two founders Simon Parker and Rachel Lowe. Simon and Rachel financed the shop themselves (with the help of a Government backed start-up loan) and designed all the unique products with recent fashion design graduate Beth. There is no outside partner or investor.

As Wham's 'Last Christmas' is tipped as Christmas No1 it's time to unearth an unforgettable cover

14.12.17

We love the fact that WHAM's Last Christmas could be this year's Christmas No1 thanks to a Facebook campaign and popular distaste for being forcefed yet another X-Factor winner. 1995 was a good year for Simon's indie punk band Colourburst and as a Christmas thank you to loyal fans they recorded a cover of their favourite Christmas record - Last Christmas - and gave away copies of the recording on red cassettes when playing a Christmas gig at The Loft, Brighton. Steve Brewer made a video of their cover (filmed in one take after a few drinks) and the video somehow made it onto late night ITV (scary as they hadn't thought to gain copyright clearance) - little did Simon know that this would be the height of his TV success! We think that this video is as classic in its own way as the original - enjoy!!!

We have a new Christmas window

23.11.17

The new Christmas window was a real team effort. Simon foraged Brighton charity shops for picture frames, Rachel painted them (and herself) yellow, Alex and Tess cut, stuck, hung things up and bought pizza and Lewis sparkled (as always!) We gathered quite a crowd when we sat in the window at 11pm having a pizza, beer and wine stop !
