(Possibly the greatest record shop in Glasgow. Two floors - new on the ground floor, 2nd hand below, along with the space invaders machines and posters memorabilia etc. tended towards a metal/punk crowd, occasional scene of mod revivalist/rocker ruckus in the early/mid 80s.) Shop is now an internet cafe.
Bloggs Records, Union Street
(More or less across the road from Missing, IIRC smaller and stocked with more new wave/post punk obscurities) Shop is now a starbucks.
Renfield St surely, not Union St?

(recent casualty. A very odd shop that stocked tons of easy listening mid price rubbish and the occasional gem priced in a way that suggested they had no idea. Often a good source of newly released non-mainstream or indie stuff at ridiculously low prices. Seemed to have had a copy of "Get yer ya yas out" by the Rolling stones in the window for decades.)
Didnt know that it's gone now. It had largely stopped selling vinyl all
together - I had bought an inordinate amout of LP's and 12"s out of there.
Orginally, it was owned by a middle aged couple and it seemed to pass
onto a younger guy. That's when the amount of vinyl stock held diminished.
Nothing like knowing your customer base eh?
They (the middle aged couple) had a second shop on the southside in
Pollokshaws Road, near Springhill Gardens. I think they retained control
of this one. Anyone know if it's still there?
