If this were 20 years ago, the list would be as long as your arm…probably longer.
But it’s making a comeback, I know for Vinyl there’s lot Going on, most seem to be inner north (Fitzroy, Northcote, Thornbury) which is great cause it’s nice place for artwork, coffee and beer and half the cool cats on Blitz claim to live there!
Best I can link to this, which has a tonne. I’ve found each one offers a little bit different, and most I don’t know how the survive.
One that isnt listed where I picked up 4 albums (CD) from local Melbourne punk bands last week is Poison City Records, 400 Brunswick St Fitzroy. It’s tiny, but had everything I wanted, and it’s right next to Polyester Records, and another 2nd hand CD/vinyl place.
If you’re from out of town, and like that sort of music, check out PBS 106.7FM and listen to “Fang It!” or “Sunglasses after dark”, all the previous shows are there and free. They play a lot of local independent stuff, and there seems to be heaps of great bands at the moment in Melbourne.
