Eastbourne's Vinyl Record Shop

The Vinyl Frontier is Eastbourne's oldest independent bricks and mortar record shop, having begun trading three years ago and is now moving to larger premises in the town centre, just 2 minutes walk from the mainline railway station.

Our Record Shop specialises in new, used and rare/collectable vinyl LPs and singles, alongside a small selection of CDs, record players (when we can source them!), music artwork, fashion clothing and memorabilia. Formerly situated in Motcombe village in bohemian Old Town, The Vinyl Frontier is moving to new larger premises at 35 Grove Road on April 18th. The shop was established in July 2012 by Chris King, a former music journalist, DJ and band/club Promoter, and is now run by Chris with his business partner, fellow DJ and former journalist Rhyddian Pugh.

Collectors and casual browsers welcome

Catering for the committed collector, the music enthusiast and the casual browser, The Vinyl Frontier's vintage vinyl stock spans a spectrum of music from the 1950s through to the present. The shop stocks a myriad of musical styles including Jazz, Blues, 1960s beat and pop, Soul and Motown, Reggae, 70s rock, Prog, Punk, New Wave, Grunge, Brit Pop and more. Stock is regularly refreshed (pretty much daily) so it is always worth dropping in to have a rummage.

Cheap Vinyl Record Prices from as little as £1

Prices are competitive and range from bargain bins offering individual records at £1, £3 (or 4 for £10) and £5 (or £5 for £20), up to more expensive rare and collectable vinyl. The shop has an impressive choice of collectable second hand records from artists as diverse as The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Kraftwerk, Fleetwood Mac, Bob Dylan, Fairport Convention, The Killers, Smashing Pumpkins, Bob Marley, New Order, John Coltrane, Black Sabbath, Kate Bush, Talking Heads and many, many more.

Alongside this vast array of top quality original records, The Vinyl Frontier also stocks brand new current releases from popular contemporary artists such as Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, Mumford & Sons, Lana Del Rey, Amy Winehouse, Laura Mvula, Adele, Arcade Fire, to name but a few. The shop also boasts an extensive selection of brand new high-quality 180gram vinyl re-issues of classic albums, by the likes of The Velvet Underground, The Beach Boys, Nick Drake, Miles Davis, Primal Scream, Deep Purple, The Strokes, Joy Divison, Pulp, Blur and more.
