As Tower Records closes, HMV slumps and Virgin Megastore becomes Urban Outfitters, Rough Trade – the Indie music label and London record store – has plans to build a large store on London’s Brick Lane that will bring new music on disk or through performance.

Rough Trade’s store director, Stephen Godfroy, says:

“Our aim is to deliver something we feel has been missing in this country for far too long; an environment that celebrates music as an exciting art form, not just another commercial commodity – but on a scale that is a departure from the traditional perception of an independent record shop.”

“The music industry seems to have a lot of doom and gloom about it at the moment, despite people’s passion for music being as strong as ever. We certainly hope to put some smiles back on faces with something that reflects the true public appetite for exciting new music.”

Reminds us of the energy Amoeba has.
