If Anyone was a fan of the super great Steel Wheels record shop in Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK then I suggest you check out Beatdown Records. Bassically Steel Wheels had Changed it's name and has now moved to two new premises. One in Ridley Place supplying drumn and bass and such (pah) the other, much superior store now located in Clarendon Basement, just across from Central Station. They Stock a RIDICULOUS amount of Metal, Stoner Rock, Avant Garde, Doom, Noise, Folk, Black Metal,punk,indie post rock blah blah and massive amount of vinyl too much of it rare.
but whatever you do, watch out for them stairs!
Check them out at Beatdown Records Claredon House Basement Bewick st NE1 5EE www.beatdownrecords.co.uk
