Soundclash is the longest established Independent record shop in Norwich and was opened in February 1991 

The Norwich city centre shop specialises in new releases, independent and underground music from around the world on vinyl and CD and is also the frontline city centre stockist for gig and festival tickets, magazines, record boxes, bags and cases, music accessories and related products along with high quality previously loved vinyl and CDs and a few books.

Soundclash was named one of Britains best small shops by the Guardian in 2007 and offers a unique shopping experience, allowing customers to listen to vinyl or CDs in store before purchasing, offering expertise, recommendations and a high quality personalised service, selling products that are hard to obtain at competitive prices.

Soundclash is the only city centre gig ticket outlet for UEA LCR and the WATERFRONT and WATERFRONT STUDIO venues also now stocking most EPIC STUDIOS tickets and occasionally Norwich Arts Centre, Bermuda Bobs, Open, Red Rooster Festival, plus many local and some national events including other festivals.

Independent record shops have been increasingly challenged from all sides which is why so many have gone out of business - a big thank you to all the loyal customers who understand that they need to use us or lose us! If you haven't been in for a while, or ever, come in and find out why customers from all over East Anglia have come back again and again for the last 29 years!
