Last Shop Standing author Graham Jones readies new book of record store anecdotes




Did you hear the one about the 12″?

Record shop devotee Graham Jones will follow his survey of the rise, fall and rebirth of the independent record shop “Last Shop Standing” with a light-hearted exposé from behind the counter. A life’s work of sorts Strange Requests and Comic Tales collects the anecdotes Jones has gathered from thirty years in music sales fraternising with the more obscure corners of the British music retail industry.

Illustrated by cartoonist Kipper Williams, Strange Requests and Comic Tales will be published on 29th July 2013. Watch Graham Jones discuss Last Shop Standing at Record Store Day earlier this year HERE or visit the blog for more info.
