Rough Trade

First opened in 1976, London, England, on the doorstep of punk, Rough Trade helped establish the unique role and experience of an independent music shop, being as much a hang-out for like-minded music lovers as it was a place to purchase music from the emerging DIY music scene.
Today, Rough Trade remains proudly independent, continuing to champion exciting new music, now with four stores in the UK, one in New York, plus the US and UK-based web stores and various pop-up activities.
