Spinning Around: Glasgow's Remarkable Record Shops, 1980-1995

Spinning Around

This display will transport music fans back to a golden era for the city’s record stores.

Among the exhibition’s main attractions are: gold discs from The Bluebells and Simple Minds; a fan-made, record shop bags connected to some of Glasgow’s best-loved vinyl venues; rare club flyers, including the Volcano’s legendary ‘Partick Passport’; and a 1956 Lambretta LD 150 scooter bought by Alex Kapranos, lead singer of Franz Ferdinand, to toast his first record deal.
