Record Shops
  • All Ages punk record shop on Pratt Street and the second hand record & DVD shop (I forget the name) on Camden High Street. There is another good record shop on Inverness Street. Cyberdog in the Stables market, sells CDs, clothes and "erotic" goods.
  • Out on the floor, Inverness St - great selection - especially for rockers AND mods. Lots of collectible vinyl at fairly reasonable prices - eg. The Stooges debut on vinyl about twelve quid
  • All Ages has the best selection of punk/rock/ska and all music along those lines and also has a rack of band shirts and skirts! Awesome shop with really friendly people in there too, its on Pratt Street, quite a little shop but its so great!
  • Vinyl Addiction, Inverness Street
  • the best record shop in camden is all ages, the household name records shop.the best ive been to for punk rock music,also does clothes, patches, zines etc.staff aint braindead twats either!its the opposite way to the lock when u get off the tube, on the way to mornington crescent.
  • Buy stuff off the market stalls
  • Bar Vinyl on Inverness street. downstairs is an ace record shop.
  • Rhythm Records on Camden High Street is the best in Camden for new stuff, but for good selection of second hand stuff try Record & Tape exchange on the same side & block as the Bucks head.
  • access all areas,117 kentish town road
  • Resurrection records - half-way up the high street under a clothes shop. The best shop in the UK for Goth, EBM, Industrial and cold-wave music. Good for death-metal too. Moody staff but good prices for what are pretty much exclusively imports.
  • Dragon Discs on Kentish Town Road beside the tube station for trance/goa, house, ambient and other dancey stuff. Also flyers and magazines, and Access All Areas in the back of the shop for all your drug/rave paraphernalia and info. Cyberdog inm the Stable Market is good too, but don't buy any of those god-awful clothes. Finally, the Psychedelic Dream Table opposite Cyberdog. Rhythm Records for more indie stuff. You can sell, buy and exchange old records at Music and Video Exchange and Out on the Floor.
  • Tower records on the high street has some downright excellent imports.
  • The best record shop in Camden Town is Out on the Floor in Inverness Street. It deals in mainly second hand records of all types and it's reasonably priced as well as giving quite good prices for the records you have to sell.
    Out On The Floor, Inverness Street - I found shitloads that I was looking for at home in the US and couldn't find.
  • There is also a Record and Tape Exchange, if you can bear to go through all the mountains of rubbish to find the one good item in stock...
  • The Music & Video Exchange on Camden High Street is actually an excellent place to pick up new and classic dance music releases, and is one of the few M&VE's with a turntable, which anyone can use to listen through records during the week. As a whole, the Music & Video Exchanges are excellent, since they get new stuff in all the time.
  • Also worth mentioning is ZOOM RECORDS, a DJ specialist record shop across the main traffic lights on the same side of the road as the tube station. They have brilliant listening facilities, as well as maintaining a very good selection of new and classic house, trance, soul, hiphop and all the usual stuff a DJ record shop should have.
  • The Electric Ballroom next to Camden market holds a record fair for rarities etc at least once a month...
  • Camden is surprisingly short on new record shops. Classic music lovers can shop at MDC on Camden High Street.
  • You should add Rhythm Records on Camden High Street to your list. An excellent store for indie/pop/rock/dance/etc... Good Stuff!
