A documentary about the endangered species known as the independent record store, which as we all know, is disappearing from the American landscape at an alarming rate.
According to the comments from high powered indie rock types like Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Mike Watt (the Minutemen) and Ian MacKaye (Fugazi) the loss of the corner record store isn't just a symptom of the problems in the music business, but of the corporate, big-box homogenization of American culture in general.
(In other words: Music = good. Big Business = bad. Mmmm-kay?)
Obviously this flick isn't gonna tell you anything you don't already know, but it's a fun watch due to the various 'characters' that are interviewed (shop owners, customers, musicians, etc.) ... plus the clips of people happily rooting through stacks of dusty LPs and CDs will bring back pleasant memories of the pre-digital age for music junkies...
