One of London’s hidden gems unveils a third shop.
The two existing Flashback Records outlets in Islington and Crouch End are a favourite haunt of many north London vinyl snoopers, with stock covering all genres and a regular calendar of in-store gigs to boot, so we’re chuffed to hear that the indie is about to open yet another shop.
The new premises is located on Bethnal Green Road in Shoreditch, just a stone’s throw from Brick Lane, and is one of several new record shops to open its doors in London this year. We’ve already welcomed a second Sister Ray just up the road from Flashback at Shoreditch’s Ace Hotel, as well as Love Vinyl in Hoxton, while vinyl junkies south of the river now have Rye Wax and YAM Records in Peckham.
Flashback Records opens its Shoreditch branch this Saturday (November 1) – find it at 131 Bethnal Green Road, E2 7DG.
