Welcome once again to Holbeck’s attempt to get in on The Vinyl Revival. Don't ask us for coffee or pie though. We just do vinyl. And CDs. And a few tapes. Actually, don’t come in at all. Best just click on the internet and we’ll do the rest.

Finally, site changes:
Just in case you haven't yet noticed we've made some changes to the site:
- a rejigged Artist Explorer to help find you new things for your jaded ears
- a 'Save For Later' function that works alongside your cart and wishlist
- check out our new, wildly-inaccurate Preorder Release Schedule
- and for everyone with time to burn, our new Reviews Wizard lets you explore the rubbish, sorry, the 28,965 incisive reviews we’ve written over the years.
That’s it. Do you like Thursdays? We do. That’s why we’ll be back with all the best things from what actually did turn up to our state of the art headquarters.
