Michael and I did a duo show a week or so ago in Northampton and I used this as as an opportunity to resume my record store interviews. We hit up Dynamite Records in Northampton, which had moved to my surprise, but we tracked them down.
I spoke to Lane and Willis.
JO’C: How long have you worked here?
Lane: 3 months
JO’C: What did you have for lunch?
Lane: Burger King Double Cheese Burger!
JO’C: What’s the last great show you went to?
JO’C: What’s the best record you’ve come across lately?
JO’C – Did you get it here at Dynamite?
Willis: You really got it from me!
Lane: Well, yeah, but that’s through here.
JO’C: Ok. If you could meet any musician or band, dead or alive, who would it be?
Lane: Talib Kweli
Willis: Joe Strummer
JO’C: Anything else we should know about Dynamite?
JO’C: Ok, I’ll be sure to let everyone know.
This did seem like a pretty cool store, though it seemed like they had considerably less stock than in their previous location, but I think they are still in the process of moving. Lots of vinyl – reasonably priced.
Look out for many more record store interviews in the coming weeks as we are about to head out for over a month. Feel free to check out the tour schedule and send along your recommendations!
