CAS Behind The Counter UK 2022: Lion Vibes, Brixton (Episode 1 of 12)

This week’s episode features Lion Vibes in Brixton. “The reason Brixton is important is because it’s a pretty core part of reggae history… we get people coming from Europe on these kind of reggae pilgrimages. They’ll come over to see Jah Shaka or Channel One Soundsystem. They’ll come out, hit all the record shops and then take the first plane back home the next day.” Ben Bell, Lion Vibes.

Behind The Counter is a 12 part video series that tells the stories behind the wonderful world of independent record shops.

Watch: Behind the Counter UK 2021 Roundup including Jumbo Records, Love Vinyl, X Records, Wilderness Record Store, Flashback Records, Le Freak Records, Tallbird Records, Reflex Records, Bear Tree Records, Diverse Vinyl, Empire Records & Elsewhere.

Presented by Classic Album Sundays and Record Store Day UK in partnership with Bowers & Wilkins.

A new episode will drop every Tuesday in the run up to #RSD22​​ which will share the unique stories from around the UK. Get to know your local shops!
