Criminal Records puts its money where its name is

Posted By on Thu, Aug 7, 2008 at 3:29 PM

For some reason, it's been all very hush-hush, but Criminal Records is planning to expand its L5P mini-empire with a satellite location dedicated to vinyl. We're told Criminal will soon take over the Euclid Avenue storefront that recently housed R. Land's Summerland art show, filling it with new, and possibly used, records.


Details are sketchy because, for unknown reasons, the fun-loving Criminals have been tight-lipped about their plans. What we hear is that the move will allow the original store to expand its selection of comics, magazines and toys. We don't know where the CDs will be housed.

But we do know that vinyl is in the midst of a consumer boom as young'uns raised on mp3s are gradually discovering that the LP is the most bad-ass recorded music format God ever created!

How does neighboring Wax 'N Facts feel about the additional competition? The ever-perky Victoria told us the folks there are looking forward to the company, the more the merrier, and all that. If anything, the new outlet will help promote the supremacy of vinyl, which may boost everyone's business.
