Europa Music: Albums, Apples, Narnia?!

2

A quick look at Scotland’s most fun record shop. Be careful not to fall into Narnia when you’re looking for Tom Wait’s albums!

Nestled in Friars Street lies a cute little music shop stuffed to the brim with various merchandise, and occasionally housing a small cupboard leading to Narnia.

They stock a nice selection of comics and some amusingly misspelled patches that I’m told are from Germany, along with what they claim, is the biggest collection of vinyl in Scotland.

By fortune of being related to the lunatics running the place (my cousin works there full time and her father is the owner, notorious for wearing rainbow jumpers), whenever I’m around I get to drink tea, choose music to play (Split Enz 24 hours a day), and try to coax Mr. Tumnus out of the cupboard.

The silly staff are mostly friendly as long as you don’t try to take away their apples.

So if you’re around, do pop in. Even if it’s just to have a good chortle about this picture:

    Tom Waits is his name, therefore the apostrophe should be after the s.

    "They stock a nice selection of comics and some amusingly misspelled patches that I’m told are from Germany, along with what they claim, is the biggest collection of vinyl in Scotland." Why is that second comma there? "along with what they claim" is not a statement on it's own so why would it be broken up that way? Please stop editing my articles at all - I'm starting to wonder if that wrong "too" in the Harry Potter one was put in by an editor as well. I know this sounds really moany, but if you're going to proof-read my articles I'd rather you didn't actually make them less grammatically correct. It's going to have a cumulative effect on the "professional" perception of your website and thus the brand as a whole. Perhaps not much of an effect, but I believe that users would appreciate attention paid to it, even if it is a small issue.
