Who are you and your current job :
Tom noble. Guess what? I own a record store. It’s a pretty natural phenomenon from collector musician to shop person. First started in Milwaukee 2001. Records weren’t a novelty at that time, they were a necessity.
In which city are you located?
What musical styles do you specialize in?
Usual suspects. Rock, soul, jazz, disco, house, hip-hop, Jamaican, African & soundtracks, world varieties.
Can you give a small tour of the music scene in your town?
No small tour for Brooklyn.
What's it like working in a record shop?
What mind-blowing album are you listing right now? (and why?). It changes daily. One record that is killing me right now is a larry heard double lp from the late 90’s.
What does Record Store Day, mean to you and your business?
It’s our anniversary! So record store day to us means a swanky anniversary party w special guests playing records.
What does it take for an indie record shop to survive?
5 local musician/band to check out!
Spend as little money as possible. Have as much talent as possible. Also, remember, records last forever so take your sweet ass time making sure your effort stands the rest of time.
