Never Records is a little bit of everything and trying to distill it into a few lines here feels a little futiile. However, at the heart of it is founder, Ted Riederer’s, desire to bring back the spirit of record shops of old. For the NY artist it’s all about community, vinyl stores were places to hang out, to meet friends, to argue about the issues of the day and share information, they were at the heart of the local music scene and were driven by passion rather than profits. Ted hopes that his temporary retail spaces which have travelled from NY to Liverpool, Derry to London will help foster this kind of community spirit he experienced in his youth. After a successful run in the UK capital, Ted moves onto to new lands, perhaps in an empty shopfront near you.
