Rough Trade East

    Rough Trade opened their massive flagship record store in 2007, when East London was starting to find it's way creatively. The renowned original, Rough Trade West, where bands like the Sex Pistols and the Clash would play, was opened in 1976 by owner Jeff Travis. Their posters are still emblazoned on the walls today and the original punk rock roots are evident in this fiercely independent epicenter of music. It has an unbeatable selection of CDs and vinyl, a fantastic book section, a photo-booth, a famous cafe and a live stage that features regular in-store performances brought to life by an amazing sound system. Director Stephen Godfroy states that Rough Trade is not overly sentimental to the past, but rather preserves music as an art form, with cutting edge retail and synthesized new releases. It also has the 3rd largest Twitter following of all UK retailers. The staff recommend with authority and form personal relationships, preserving the record store as a community hub and creating a home away from home. It's a place for true music lovers. Much like the artists it represents, Rough Trade is adamant about remaining true to oneself.Show lessRead more
