This week in Harry’s Place Arts

Junkbox Jury is back for its regular Friday slot, bringing three new tracks from three interesting-looking bands found in the junkboxes of London’s record shops, the flotsam and jetsam of the music business as it were… but is any of it valuable salvage?

Also this week, a tribute to the late great Paul Newman. Also in, news that Nils Lofgren, the bouncing foil to both Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young is, after decades of overuse and abuse, to have his hips replaced. A post-convalencence sit-down acoustic tour has been planned.

As we say farewell to Sister Ray, an iconic record store in the heart of Berwick Street, we ask: can record shops do more to compete with the Internet, rivals, and stay in business?

All in the Harry’s Place ARTS section…
