Documentary: LAST SHOP STANDING

About The Film
Last Shop Standing is collaboration between award winning feature film company Blue Hippo Media and Proper Music Publishing Ltd.

Based on the successful book of the same name, Last Shop Standing will be a 50-minute documentary to be released on 10 September 2012. It will be a celebration of the unique spirit of comradeship and entrepreneurial ingenuity that has enabled so many shops to keep operating successfully against the backdrop of massive changes in the music industry, the biggest recession in years, the growth of online file sharing and the explosion of choice in music consumption.

Not long ago there was a record shop on every high street, but over 500 independent record stores have closed during the last few years. Record shops were always more than retail outlets, they are part of our culture; they support new bands and local talent. A place for musicians and music fans to congregate, to browse away a few hours, to walk away with music they didn’t know existed.

The film will feature appearances by musicians and industry insiders including Johnny Marr, Norman Cook, Billy Bragg, Paul Weller, Nerina Pallot and Richard Hawley with more to be confirmed, but the real stars are the record shop owners, their stories are the stuff of folklore! The film will tell the full story, hold back no punches, but also celebrate and promote our great independent record stores.

Last Shop Standing will be entered in a range of national and international documentary film festivals and we are already exploring opportunities for broadcast on both mainstream and cable/satellite channels in both the USA and UK and further afield. The DVD is out on the 10 September from all independent record shops, you can pre-order now.

Last Shop Standing, the book by Graham Jones, is available from all good record and bookshops.
