Rose Red RecordsRose Red Records is one of the new celebrated record shops in town. Situated in a decent location in Boscombe’s Royal Arcade, I’ve not been to visit properly before, even though Chris and Amy came in to do a show with us on HopeFM during the year.  The shop occasionally features small sets, signings and so forth from bands, most notably recently a signing session from the likes of Uriah Heep. Not Made In China are the latest band to play here, since they are what I dub the happiest band in Bournemouth, and Ness and I are out and about anyway, we drop in to hear them.  Unfortunately, Gavin forgot his bass, so we’re waiting for some time while he retrieves it, giving me some time to enjoy browsing the cellar of this remarkable shop.  A select number of vinyl albums are kept in stock here, all used / pre-owned / second-hand, and there are some classics among them, some of which I already have in my collection, many others that I would desire, were money no object.

Not Made In China @ Rose Red RecordsGavin arrives with his bass, and Not Made In China start their set, now I can only stay for a couple of songs since I’m late for other things I need to do this day.  They are always a lot of fun, with their happy-sounding major chords, great tunes, and incisive lyrics.  Thanks guys for the introduction to the shop, and for the short set portion I can catch…
