What was the best gig you have ever been to?
"Probably seeing Mucky Pup play the Red Spot in Staten Island with my best friend back in New Jersey Rob Pachoda. It was a full on hardcore gig and we were both in the mosh pit when I got hit down and stamped on a few times, and then I lashed out - only to hit a skin head in the face (did I mention that he had a swastika tattooed on the centre of his forehead?) with my boot. He just clean dragged me up and shoulder barged me back into the madness and that was the end of that. My ribs hurt the day after but it was a monumental night! Either that, or being able to see Miles Davis play when I was a kid. Genius!!!"

Describe your store in 3 words. "Down to earth" - Tremon of Curated Records.
-
We speak to Tremon about the cosy spot which houses, as its name suggests, crates of curated vinyls in Tiong Bahru.

Tell us the love story behind your store
Tremon: I'd always remember how I started collecting music during the school days, it was all in physical formats back then, and they were all from local brick and mortar record stores which I loved. They provided a space, literally and physically, for people to discover and to share music – we depended a lot on in-store recommendations. Couple of decades later, I wondered if is possible to revive this for the ones who dearly miss it, and at the same time, introduce it to the new younger generation. For me who has been (and still is) a customer who shops for records, knows exactly what Curated Records needs to offer – it should make you feel your day just got better

Who is your ultimate British music icon?
T: Black Sabbath

Complete this sentence: For the record..
T: Blind buying is the epitome of the ultimate record-collecting experience.

Describe your store in three words.
"Old vintage store. We've a huge collection of old records from oldies, 80s rock, country, jazz, 90s grunge, 80s pop and even techno." - Paul of Roxy Records & Trading.

We caught up with Paul from the family-ran veteran store in the vinyl record game with over five decades of history as well as what drives them to continue the business started by his father and friends.

Tell us the love story behind your store.
Paul: My brothers and I have been running the business for several decades now but the store was originally opened by my dad and several of his friends back in 1962. Back then, entertainment for the masses was mainly in the form of Chinese opera and there were hardly any record stores which would carry these records so we would produce the LPs and eventually we expanded our offerings to other genres.

What drives you to continue the business?
P: Even though rental and expenses have been challenges in the business, my brothers and I are determined to continue because we have the passion for vinyl records and even CDs. Also, we've been holding onto the business for so many years due to the high sentimental value this place holds for us.

Describe your store in three words.
"Music at home" - Celia of RetroCrates.
-
Celia shares more on her cosy spot in Joo Chiat which houses new, pre-loved and even out-of-print records, as well as her love for 80s music.

Tell us the love story behind your store.
Celia: My love for music started from young. My dad loved music and there was always a record spinning every night - The Carpenters, Bee Gees, Earth Wind & Fire etc. Then it progressed to my owning cassette tapes or blasting music from the radio set. Teenage growing up years were spent saving precious pocket money to splurge on a 12" single ! Having my own record store is just an extension of my hobby and passion for music from a 5-year old singing The Carpenters "Top of The World" to my humming the tune of "Shape of You" by Ed Sheeran. It just doesn't stop because music is always here.

What was the first record you played on repeat?
C: As far as I can remember, it was the self-titled album of "A Flock Of Seagulls" . I Ran (So Far Away) was my ultimate favourite song then. Imagine the delight I had when I saw / heard it being played on La La Land.

A song lyric that has inspired you?
C: I don't care if Monday's black
Tuesday, Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It's Friday I'm in love
- The Cure (Friday, I'm In Love)
