Sister Ray x Evening Standard
We're honoured to have received a glowing write-up in Ped Millichamp's article on the best online record shops in the UK:
"Sister Ray has been selling music from the heart of Soho for 30 years with the friendliest and most enthusiastic staff.
Named after the Velvet Underground track, Sister Ray has survived the twists and turns of the music industry and consumer trends – striding on through the years when the internet signed most other physical retail and record stores’s death certificate.
Through sheer determination and commitment to the vinyl format – and by becoming a major force behind ‘Record Store Day’ and the recent vinyl revival – Sister Ray is one of the UK’s foremost record shops with a reputation as the authority on vinyl.
Their physical shop is legendary (immortalised on the cover of Oasis album, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory) but their online store is the gateway to a vast array of music, both new and old. Search for new releases, pre-orders or dinked editions by artist, label or genre and be impressed by the detailed product info, artist bio, track list and soundwave that accompanies most listings offering a great way to expand your knowledge and discover new music. You can even sell your vinyl or pop into their Merch shop or check out their Latest News section with updates on upcoming gigs or reviews.
Ordering is delightfully simple; vinyl will promptly arrive securely packaged and ready to spin. Their online customer reviews are hugely impressive as are their upbeat and efficient staff who are quick to reply and answer any queries pre- or post-purchase."
We are chuffed to bits with the end of the article too!
