I never got that impression about Jumbo. I always got the feeling they were all music lovers pure and simple. I bought more Al Green albums from Jumbo than anything by any other artist or band. Now Al's not exactly left field is he? They were great and ordered loads for me and played them in the shop.


I bought my Al Green from there n'all.

I go in mostly these days to pick gig tickets up but always have a good long peruse around, I feel a bit strange doing that, maybe i worry too much but i always get the impression that they'll have a bit of a laugh at old giffers paying over the odds for indie music.  I would do it and have done it purely for the sake of supporting such a brilliant establishment but then again i look at the cool lass behind the counter and can't help thinking she's thinking "don't you pity us you silly sentimental  old sausage and if you think buying some Rolling Stones tribute band CD is going to impress me think again you  sad old lad" which is just what i thought when i got the Last spiritualised album there.

It's almost as if buying anything mainstream there  isn't encouraged and actually scorned. That's the way i feel about the place anyway

You think too much. Buy what you feckin' like. Since when did music have age limits on it. Buy Spiritualized or buy a McFly cd. Its whatever rocks each individuals own soul that matters, not what the hep cats are into. Good art has no limits to who should be into it. All those too-cool-for-school chinstrokers can jump in the fucking canal for all I care. It's pop music. Nowt more nowt less. If it gets your foot a tappin' or your head a noddin' it's your business and no fucker else's.


I agree with the diminutive one, bollocks to what the lass behind the counter thinks.  You've probably more musical knowledge and soul in your left earlobe than she will ever muster.

If you like the music then buy it, that's what music is for, it's for people to like.  Whether that music is Adele or The Oh Sees it matters not.

Although I was still home when they moved to St John's most of my memories are from The Merrion. There was a lad, Mark, I think, blonde pony tail who was over and above decent with us but I never found any of them snobbish. The other guy I think went on to Crash, he was cool too. 'Buy this if you don't like it bring it back next week.'

If it's changed that's sad.

I never nicked records from Jumbo either. I think you're referring to Woolies.


Phil, I worked with a woman who said they did Al -Nighters at The Astoria though I'm not sure how far back she was talking.  Anytime you feel like posting more, I'd love to read. All you really hear about is Wigan.

Used to do loads of Scooter Rallies back in the 80's where there was a huge Northern Soul following going on and 'All Nighters' all the time.
Had mates that were well into the Northern Soul thang and one that has a huge collection still. Just didnt get into it myself. Suppose i was more into the Reggae/ Punky sounds to be heard on Rallies.

Scooter rider back in the day Philwear?


No, the only time I had a go on a scooter was with my mate who lived over the road from me. He used to get old crappy ones and try & get them running. Then we'd wheel them down to the Fearnvilles and have a scoot.

They've moved if you didn't know already, back into the Merrion Center but not the same place as before. It seems bigger but the lass tells me it's the same floor space. First thing that grabbed me was the brilliant sound system and I will be using the new coffee area they have if only to listen to it. Its still the same vibe and arrangement of categories which is still slightly baffling. I mean indie, pop, garage, Americana, country, folk? wtf its all rock n roll man.
