I was passing through Birmingham on my way to Tanworth-In-Arden and stopped into The Diskery. I found their selection to be simply incredible. Since I was travelling around the UK I gravitated towards the 45's (smaller, easier to cart around). Literally every single box was full of gems. I pulled so many and the prices were so good that I went a little nuts. There were three gentlemen there and when I first walked in and they were having a great time, talking music, playing records, commenting on the musicians and the bands - it made me feel so welcome and the comradery was palpable. While I was digging one of the three gentlemen asked if I wanted coffee or tea!!!!Being from the States and buying and shopping for records and digging for over 25 years I have NEVER been asked that in any shop I have ever been to!It was quite a gesture and I again felt immediately at home.I wish I could remember their names and that makes me feel bad - another thing that NEVER happens here in the States is that they let me use their bathroom!!!All three of them asked to look through what I picked out and they all said "you really know your stuff".I cannot say enough great things about this record shop and it pains me to say that the only reason I may never go back is because I live in the States.That being said if I can ever get back to Birmingham The Diskery is a shop I will need to visit because of all of the above AND I didn't have any time to look in the basement.Well done guys and cheers for the hospitality!!
Quite simply the best record shop in Birmingham possibly the world !!! Fantastic selection of a wide range of styles of music. Lee the owner will always take time to chat and make you feel welcome, Liam is a fountain of knowledge what he doesn't know about music simply isn't worth knowing & Peter will always put the kettle on. Not only a shop but an truly pleasurable experience would highly recommend keep up the good work lads
It is always a pleasure visiting this Vinyl shop. One of the oldest in UK. Good music from DJ while you browse. Bear in mind that the shop has moved 100 yards around the corner now.
Had an hour to kill before my train home so thought I'd get down to this place to see if it had anything to offer. A real old style second hand record shop, shelves and racks filled with various genres and at decent prices too. Came out with a couple of bargains! Loved the feel of it, friendly staff and one of those trademark dusty basements that used to be so much fun digging through before online selling became the popular option.
A great shop that reminded me of the second hand record shops I used to visit in the 90's. The staff were really friendly. There were records, cassette, tapes all kinds of music paraphernalia. The was singer performing live in store when I was there and she sounded great. I really like this store I just wish the was one like this in London.
