Sound It Out Records

We had more than 8,000 votes in our inaugural Record Shop Of The Year competition. Gary Walker pays a visit to the worthy winner – Teesside’s Sound It Out Records


The runners-up

Credit cards. Balls of steel. And the UK’s most northerly record shop


Fast approaching its fifth birthday, Wah Wah was started, says owner Alan Nutton, “using credit cards and balls of steel”. The team pride themselves on not having stock online and being a purely bricks and mortar shop. Stocking both new and used vinyl, Wah Wah has been growing steadily since opening in 2013. “I see the shop as a labour of love and I think most of our customers can relate to my passion, they know we’re not perfect but that’s sort of what makes us work,” says Nutton. “We have good ties with the local community, including Wakefield Long Division festival, and try to work with many other businesses and events around the city. Wakefield is a great place to be, and we’re proud to be there representing the physical-music lovers.”
