Liverpool’s The Musical Box features alongside Marr and Weller in documentary on decline of British indie record shops.
Last Shop Standing, a new film about independent record shops, will be released in selected cinemas across the country and on DVD on September 10.
The film takes its name Graham Jones’ book and explores why nearly 2000 record shops have disappeared across the UK.
Among the shops featured are Merseyside’s The Musical Box on West Derby Road, while Entertainment Retailers Association chairman Paul Quirk, former owner of West Lancs’ indie record chain, Quirks also features.
Johnny Marr, Billy Bragg, Norman Cook and Paul Weller are all interviewed, along with contributions from the owners and staff of 28 record shops across the country.
There is of course a flip side to all this with vinyl sales rising 39% from 2010, through events like Record Store Day and massive artist support.
