Probe Records

I have only just seen it, Julian…it takes me right back to our school days. Pete Burns working behind the counter…the sense of exploration as you sifted through the records. It was the darker half-brother of Penny Lane Records at the top of Church Street.

Penny Lane Records! I’d forgotten about that. Used to go in there every week on the way to the rowing club to check the bargains – which dictated my music collection – and buy the NME and Melody Maker – which didn’t. Then I mustered the courage to go into Probe. Bought Two Bad DJ by Clint Eastwood and General Saint, having heard it on John Peel. Thought, I’ve started living at last.
