Action Records has been established since 1979, starting off on a stall in Blackpool just as the independent music scene was emerging. From there we soon opened a site in Preston, where we have been ever since.
We are members of all specialist independent chains; therefore we are offered all limited editions and special offers including quantity on all Record Store Day releases. We have always been at the forefront of music trends throughout the years, and we've also established our own record label, releasing records by bands such as The Boo Radleys, Dandelion Adventure, Big Red Bus, Genocides, Tompaulin, Fi-Lo Radio, Monkey Steals The Drum amongst others. Our biggest project so far has been with The Fall and Mark E Smith as a solo performer.
Whilst the doors are closed we are busy concentrating on mail order and listening to Evil Blizzard and the new BC Camplight album. We are missing customers coming into the shop and being able to recommend music to them and listen to their recommendations for us.
Here's the link to a short video about the shop:
