Liam Gallagher‘s Pretty Green clothing shops will begin selling vinyl records later this month, marking another boost for the traditional market.
With last month’s Record Store Day enjoying its best ever year sales-wise, and the recent launch of a new Independent Record Store chart also helping to keep the format in the headlines, the fortunes of a previously endangered medium appear to be on a permanent upward curve.
And now the former Oasis frontman has lent his support to vinyl, with ten of his Pretty Green shops due to begin selling a range of classic albums for a limited period from the end of this month.
“We are seeing continued passion as well as new enthusiasm for vinyl through our online store Uvinyl and the great support the format gets from those indie music shops which are still flourishing,” Brian Rose, the managing director of Universal Music UK’s commercial division, which is behind the venture, has said.
“But by harnessing the latest technology we hope this partnership with Pretty Green will lead to much wider opportunities for selling music on the high street.”
