Tom buys records all over the country to make sure 700 new-in vinyl records go out every Saturday

Enormous ROCK ALBUM selection in superb condition. Maybe not full of obscurities, but the LPs you want are here. When I say rock I mean Doors to GnR and all points between.

Also some nice Blue Note repress Jazz LPs, cheap Soul LPs, Disco and Hip Hop 12"s, big selection of bargain &"s singles...see the pictures.

250 fresh cds every week

Sneak Peek: click here

Over 250 fresh CDs at Rat Records every Tuesday.

We price records to sell.

We've been trading in Camberwell since 1999. This is Tom's fourth and best London record shop. Between the expert staff, we have over 55 years' experience of dealing in records. We know our stuff and will be nice to you when you visit. Come and hunt for a bargain.

All our records are priced to sell and always lower than the cheapest equivalent online, let alone other record shops in London.

Our LPs start from £2 and most are under £9. 7" and 12" records start from £1 and most are under £5.
Our secoond hand CDs are mostly £3-£5. We put out 700 fresh records and 250 CDs every week.

we put out 700 records every week

Tom travels all over the country every week to buy records and then we put them all out on every Saturday morning. First come, first served.

Join the 10.30 queue and dig through the racks. Soundtrack by the Rat Sessions guest DJ!

We’ve got 3 listening decks. Come down and check our tunes.
Don't wait until Monday or all the rare vinyl gems will be gone!

Although we are also open Monday-Saturday 10:30-6:30, so you can rifle the used record & CD shop at your leisure.

Taste rules here, not fashion.

Rat Session 34: John Flindt, April 2016?!

January 1, 2016

https://www.mixcloud.com/ratrecords/rat-session-34-john-flindt/

This one is for the Jazz, Disco and soulful heads out there. John is originally from Manchester and is studying arts in London. There's little more I can say because I was not there and Pete can't seem to be able to tell me much due to the fact that he was not completely there either, as he had only 3 hours of sleep due to our Party at the Tiger the night before. Pete says "it was a good Saturday afternoon, the was flowing through Charles Mingus into disco, soul, exotica some housey bits at the end... " Ps : we tried our best but failed to find a way to upload that picture straight...

OUR VINYL RECORD
CLEANING MACHINE

Just how clean are your Vinyl Albums? Your Records are Dirty. We clean Vinyl Records. They sound better. They look better.
Forget mindfulness. This makes us better people.
The cost? A mere £5 per LP/12” or £3 per 7” single.

Please get in touch before you bring your records in.

Here at the Rat Records shop we take vintage vinyl records seriously, so seriously that we now have a record cleaning machine that cost more than my car. In our secret underground laboratory we are now the proud mahouts of the mighty beast, the behemoth, the Loricraft PRC Mark 4 Vinyl Record Cleaning Machine. http://www.garrard501.com/

This is not some old record deck with a hoover gaffa taped onto it in a wonky chipboard box. This is just about the most expensive and effective vinyl record cleaner you can buy. You get your clean record back in a new anti-static inner sleeve too.

Prof. Giron and Dr. Tom offer their professional vinyl record cleaning service to you, the public. Each record will be thoroughly cleaned, as above, and returned to you in an a new Nagaoka anti-static sleeve. You will be amazed just how dynamic your vinyl will sound. No-one else is doing this in London that we know of.

This service costs £5 per LP/12" single and £3/7" single (no volume discounts). Does that seem like a lot? Isn't your record collection important to you then? The Loricraft PRC Mark 4 Vinyl Record Cleaning Machine cost me £1600. I care people. Treat yourself for a fraction of that.

Still so tight you're going to clean all your records yourself? True, you could just scrub all your favourite records, that you paid a fortune for and took years to find, with a brillo pad and some lighter fluid. Or a bit of spit on a T shirt. It's up to you.
