I hadn’t been into The Diskery for a while. Just down and round the corner from the O2 Academy on Horsefair, its not an obvious choice of places to go. They have an unbelievable range of vinyl from the very dawn of the invention of the slick circles of black plastic to fairly recent times. All crammed into shelves waiting to be found. And plenty of CDs too.
This is a place to be, and if you are from outside of Birmingham, there is enough material here to justify making trip to The Diskery the main part of an afternoon’s outing. As I’m blown away by a Small Faces single from 1968, just next to it is a copy of Love Me Do! This shop is full of moments like this. It’s not just relatively ancient stuff they stock. My friend picked up some early to mid-eighties albums by Soft Cell and Howard Jones too.
