    My first post!
    Hello all

    Dragon Records is Belfast's newest record shop, and it's on the first floor of 58 Wellington Place, between the Lounge Cafe and Up & Running (the same building as Dark Angel Tattoo).

    We're stocking vinyl and CD, and although most stuff is 2nd hand at the minute, new stuff is arriving in regularly. We stock indie, experimental, noise, soul, funk, jazz, blues, electronica, hip hop, reggae, psych etc so come in and have a look.

    We've got (amongst other things) some Sterolab, Ornette Coleman, King Tubby, Radiohead, Black Dice, Orbital, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Azusa Plane, Crowbar, Serena Maneesh etc etc etc.

    New stock that arrived recently includes some dub LPs on Jamaican Recordings, Thai Beat A Go Go LPs, Russ Meyer soundtracks on LP, and some mod compilation LPs.

    You can follow us on Twitter [url=http://twitter.com/DragonRecordsBT]here[/url], join us on MySpace [url=http://www.myspace.com/dragonrecords]here[/url] and be our Facebook friend (search for Dragon Records Belfast).

    We're open Monday to Friday 11 til half 6, and Saturday 10 til 6.

    There are flyers around town with more info on them, and you can contact us through here or at dragonrecords [at] gmx [dot] co [dot] uk

    Thanks - hope to see some of you at the shop soon!

    That unit was the original Crymble's musical instrument shop when I was a kid. I suppose no-one else is old enough to remember that. Beautiful art-nouveau front.

    From nearly no indipendent record shops to two, as a self-confessed vinyl junkie I cannot be happy enoguh.

    Hopefully will manage to drop down to check out the place next week, a selection of dub vinyl is definitely proving tempting!

    Brilliant! I'm really getting into this vinyl collecting carry on and I should be in next time I'm about the city
  7. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Beware, it all starts as harmless fun and then it turns into an addictive and costly habit. A bit like drugs really.

    [quote:1e3cb2f813="POSITIVExYOUTH"]a selection of dub vinyl is definitely proving tempting![/quote:1e3cb2f813]

    We have dub LPs in at the minute by King Tubby, Niney The Observer, Horace Andy, and a Treasure Isle Compilation. Also we have stuff in by U Roy and John Holt amongst others.

    We've just got The Funky Beats Of Revolutionary Cuba volumes 1 and 2 in on LP for those who want something perhaps a little more exotic.
  9. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    King Tubby, U-Roy and Horace Andy? Looks like I'll be showing my face on wednesday!
  10. avatar Dragon Records
    Heh heh. Good stuff.

    Let us know what you thought of the shop - we're looking for feedback to see how we're doing, early days though it is.
  11. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    Was in yesterday to check it out and buy (the dude with the camos who bought The Locust/Jenny Piccolo split 5" and others) and I have to say it is a quite nice space, definitely has potential. Obviously as it's early days the stock is quite limited, but a lot of what was there was really good. Quite surprised to see some of the stuff I saw for it not being a 'specialised' shop. If yous keep going that direction it's definitely going to attract a few people.
  12. avatar Strong Reaction
    Locust 5" you say?
  13. avatar antimythrhythmrockshocker
    dont suppose thers any jobs goin in ther at the minute?
  14. avatar Jamesy Yakuza
    Will try and get in at the weekend...are yis buying second hand stuff? I few bits and pieces I could bring down..."why the hell did I buy that" kind of stuff that someone might like...
  15. avatar POSITIVExYOUTH
    [quote:80ee04dc8d="Strong Reaction"]Locust 5" you say?[/quote:80ee04dc8d]

    Indeed! At 10 it wasn't too bad. There is certainly other stuff along those lines, Trencher or Hey Colossus sort of stuff.
  16. avatar Dragon Records
    Thanks for the feedback, that's encouraging. We will certainly take a look at stuff if you want to bring it into the shop.

    Other stuff we have in at the minute that might be of interest to some of you out there includes Gravitar, AIDS Wolf, Azusa Plane, Belong, quite a bit of Black Dice and Nick Cave & The Black Seeds, Enon, XBXRX and suchlike.

    Sorry, there are no jobs going at the minute, but thanks for showing interest. Maybe one day, who knows?

    We'll be getting more new stock in next month, some hip hop, some dub, some noise, some other bits and bobs. Keep checking in please!
