A mate of mine was in London recently. Serious music buff ,has been there a couple of times previously interviewing bands for 3RRR the Melb indie radio station. He commented how disappointed he was in searching for music. Admittedly, he was there mid week but he could find hardly a place open and Time Out had only some recommendations rather than full gig listings.
A keen collector also he did the rounds of the records shops and as he was travelling didn’t want to get vinlys. Bugger all choice according to him -leans towards country, alt country. Went to Rough Trade and asked about new Eilen Jewell album….who?
Is this what one should expect these days or did he just not research his trip properly?
