Editorial Reviews

Released to critical acclaim and enthusiastic audience reactions since its UK premiere in September 2012, we are delighted to announce that Last Shop Standing - the Rise, Fall and Rebirth of the Independent Record Shop has been chosen as the official record store day film for 2013. Inspired by the book of the same name by Graham Jones, the film charts the rapid rise of record shops in the 1960s / 70s and 80's, the influence of the chart, the underhand deals, the demise of vinyl and rise of the CD as well as new technologies. Hear from over 20 record shop owners and music industry leaders such as Tony Wadsworth as well as musicians including Paul Weller, Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Nerina Pallot, Richard Hawley and Clint Boon as they all tell us how the shops became and still are a part of their own musical education, a place to cherish and discover new bands and new music.

These are great times for vinyl records.

Plus, what a great cast of characters - one charming local music nerd after another... what's not to love?

My favorite shop owners are an elderly couple who have had their shop for over 50 years!.

One of two new DVDs about the rise and fall (and rise?) of Independent Record Stores

This week - just two days before 2013 Record Store Day - I got TWO new DVDs, both documentaries celebrating independent record shops. One covers the British market while the other focuses on one store in Louisville, KY, while it does include interviews with shop owners in other parts of the US. Since they are similar, I'm making this a combined review and will post it under both titles. Both have "release" dates of April 23rd but should be in independent record stores on April 21st (RSD)

"Last Shop Standing" (LSS) is really the "official DVD" of Record Store Days 2013 (per the distributor). A standard version of the 48-minute film is available in the PAL-format (not playable in the US) but has no bonues. The "Deluxe Edition" (the one coming on 4/23/13) adds 74 minutes of extras (more on those in a minute). Based on the book of the same name LSS is a compilation of interview segments with owners of 27 different independent record stores in the UK as well as musicians (who started out as record collectors) like Bi;lly Bragg, Paul Well and Johnny Marr. There are also comments from a former Record Executive with EMI. My favorite shop owners are an elderly couple who have had their shop for over 50 years!. The film has three chapters: "The Rise", "The Fall" and "The Rebirth". The 48 minutes seem to drag at some points when many of the interviews seem to sound alike but I still enjoyed it.

The bonuses include the 4 1/2 -minute ""Rebirth Continued" which was filmed after the film was released and spends most of the time with a guy who created a coffee shop/record store named "Pie & Vinyl" to keep his operation going. The 6-minute "Shop Talk" has some funny stories about customers.

Watch this film. That needs to be stated upfront. Watch this film. So… why? Why?! Because you wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t have an interest in independent music and film, which is having the life strangled out of it by the so-called advancement of civilization in the modern age, and director Pip Piper has crafted a visual guide for discovering and salvaging these most-important bastions of art and life and love, these beautiful brick and mortar oases that have been responsible for introducing countless people to the most important thing there is, in my mind: three chords and the truth. ‘Last Shop Standing’ is a fast-paced, engaging documentary about independent record stores across the UK, and this North American edition from Conveyor and MVD Visual beefs up the original 50-minute film with 74 minutes of extras. Piper’s film is inspired by Graham Jones’ book of the same name, and follows the same path – a coast-to-coast-to-coast-to-coast journey across the UK, from Bristol to Glasgow to Cardiff to Cambridge, visiting the few long-standing record stores that have managed to keep their doors open as well as a new hope: freshly opened record stores run by folks who hope to keep the tradition alive. In addition to on-site interviews with the proprietors of these shops, the film features fantastic testimony from BBC Radio 6 DJ Jo Good and musicians like Paul Weller, Billy Bragg, Johnny Marr, Richard Hawley, and – for this deluxe DVD edition – Sid Griffin. How’s that for explaining why you should watch this film?! Watch this film. And buy a copy (or three) at an independent record store… it’s just the right thing to do.

"Last Shop Standing: The Rise, Fall And
Rebirth Of The Independent Record Shop"
. . . . .

This brief documentary is an ardent love letter to locally owned record stores, once a dying breed and now back off the endangered list as the novelty of the digital era gives way to a more mature view of the music world. The setting is Great Britain, as musically-obsessed a nation as ever there was, and the cast of characters includes dozens of delightfully idiosyncratic record store owners and employees, and many of their numerous fans, including music journalists and fabled British artists such as Billy Bragg, Johnny Marr and Paul Weller of The Jam, who sing the praises of their favorite local shops, while also offering clear-eyed analyses of what went wrong.

The opening chapters paint a dire picture, of a heartless music industry that threw the indie shops to the wolves when their corporate profit models changed, and a fickle fan base who plundered the Internet's bounty when Napster & Co. arose, and quit spending money in the analog world... Many shops went under, but the sellers that survived became lean and adaptable, as well as philosophical about the various twists of fate. The film examines a global phenomenon through a "small" local filter, and while the specifics may have been different in other countries, the overall story sound much the same. (And I'm sure I'm not the only viewer who spent a lot of the movie quickly absorbing the flavors and rhythms of various shops across the UK, looking yearningly at the overstuffed record bins in the background shots, and making mental lists of all the stores I'd love to check out on my next vacation...
