Shop 33, Luton

Really nice sounding shop has opened its doors in Luton. All things arts, crafts, and music - plus they are a record label!

It's part of the regeneration of the High Town area of Luton, which can only be positive. The people working for the shop are volunteers and they're really ace.

I might also add that one of them has taken on some copies of the paper version of The All Thrills No Frills Music Bill! Issue #2 featuring a huge article and in depth interview with Tender Trap/Amelia Fletcher, plus all sorts of bits and bobs on bands like Tilly and the Wall, This Mortal Coil, Teenagers in Tokyo, Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Chameleons, Edwyn Collins... and stuff about record shops, music culture (this issue looks at females being attacked by males at gigs), compilation tapes, pop recommendations, and, er, Luke Haines's cat, of course!

Shop 33 also stocks the fantastic local-to-Luton Clod magazine - a surreal, satirical work of genius that always makes me laugh aloud. Plus, records by local Luton band The Knockouts, and plenty of other rock/jazz/alt stuff.

The interior of the shop looks really artistic, and I look forward to visiting one day.
