actually, at the moment the £ is very weak (nearly equal to € :P ) so from continental perspective, this may moderate the high prices. Camden Market will be checked out for sure.

I have a question to all the Swedes:

I have heard of several record stores in Stockholm: Black Hole, Repulsive Records, and Sound Pollution. Which one is the best?
Black Hole sells a little bit of everything, t-shirts, CDs, a handful of vinyls, most of it on comission. The stock isn't that big, but Susanna serves coffee, muffins, zines and good company.

Repulsive Records is a relatively new store, and a great one if you're looking for underground/import CDs and vinyl - anything from nwobhm to modern black metal. There's also some 2nd hand vinyl (and CD), books, DVDs, shirts, the usual... A must-visit if you're in Sthlm.

Sound Pollution is 'the older version' of Repulsive so to speak. They've gone through various incarnations through the years and is basically the most well known Rock Store in Sthlm. No 2nd hand stuff though.

More on the last few decent 2nd hand stores later...

Goon news for tourists but the general cost of day to day living is quite expensive.

In regards to hunting in the Midlands, I believe there are a few good places such as Selectadisc in Nottingham. Reveal records in derby was quite good for newer stuff but I believe they have now shut. I don't go that way much anymore.
Remember kids, only high priced rarities are true...

Yes, though I'm not quite sure what the label's called at the moment. Sound Pollution is basically the amalgamation of the old distros/shops/labels CBR (Omnitron/Krixhjälters, Comecon, Raped Teenagers etc..) and House Of Kicks (Therion mini).

Don't think so. No Fashion did the Therion mini? I don't have it anymore, but as I remember it, it was released by HOK.

Well at least House Of Kicks distributed the No Fashion label...

I remember being very impressed by Sound Pollution when I visited there in '99. bought a bunch of fairly random 7"s and 12" singles. Still have the plastic bag keeping photos from that trip!!!
You want it to be one way. But it's the other way.

Just visited York last weekend and must say this is quite the case with food, drinks etc. Still pretty expensive, even with the low value of the GBP. Clothing and books however: bargains to be done for us mainland-folks.

I've been told the Midlands is better for metal hunting??
I've found the odd good thing here and there, but nothing spectacular. There's a couple of reasonable shops in Birmingham and a couple of decent ones in the Black Country too.

I also forgot to ask about Heavy Sound. How is it?
