The vinyl curtain

It's a shame to hear that The Music Exchange in Nottingham will be closing its doors next month. I've never actually visited the shop, which opened up in 2009, long after I'd left the city, but have friends there who very much value its existence both as a source of music and as a social enterprise dedicated to fighting homelessness through employing volunteers as staff. Given that the city's music scene is apparently in rude good health, it's a sad state of affairs when an establishment that has been lauded by everyone from Music Week and Gigwise to the Independent and the Observer is unable to survive.
