A new online video showing some of the UK's most cherished music retailers has been released - as a taster of the documentary on the subject due for release this summer.

You can watch the second clip from Last Shop Standing above - in which our very own shop manager Spencer Hickman from Rough Trade East features and discusses all things music retail. There are also contributions from Billy Bragg, Norman Cook and Richard Hawley.

The blurb for the film says: "It will be a celebration of the unique spirit of comradeship and entrepreneurial ingenuity that has enabled so many shops to keep operating successfully against the backdrop of massive changes in the music industry, the biggest recession in years, the growth of online file sharing, and the explosion of choice in music consumption."

Last Shop Standing is a collaboration between film company Blue Hippo Media and Proper Music Publishing Ltd and are currently looking for some crowd-funding support. More on that can be found here...
