  • ilfracombe gardens sold me plectrums from the age of 14 and i always remember my mate ben having an organ delivered (!) from the whitley bay home organ centre. Following his purchase Ben received a monthly newsletter from "Edna", the co-proprietor and whom one feels "wore the trousers" in that shop. The last newsletter he received 5 months after the organ purchase was a mass propaganda slur against a former employee, with slogans such as "She's gone!", "The light has returned", etc. Last time we saw Edna she was slumped up against one of the pubs in the town centre, inebriated.
  • there is no music shops that deserve the name

  • One guitar shop on Ilficombe Road and one keyboard shop opposite Bar OZ.
