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.

Thanks - hope to see some of you at the shop soon!
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.
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!
Thanks to everyone who's popped in so far. More stuff has arrived - Serge Gainsbourg, Lee Perry boxset, Pantera boxset, some Belle & Sebastian CD singles, System Of A Down CDs, MV & EE, more Black Dice, and Gene Vincent!
