The biggest surprise about the rise in vinyl record sales is the age of the buyers. A poll by the BPI, the UK music industry body, found that more than a third of the record enthusiasts were under 35 years old. How do they even know what vinyl is?
I saw a BBC feature on this subculture the other dayand now I really want to watchthis:
"Award-winning director Elaine Constantine has recently completed her first feature-length film about two Northern boys whose worlds are changed forever when they discover black American soul music.
Northern Soul was phenomenally popular with British youths in the 1970s, taking the North of the UK by storm. Northern Soul the film intends to appeal to those generations of fans while attracting a modern audience. If you were there, you’ll know. If you weren’t there, you’ll wish you had been.”
