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.”
