CLOCK WORK RECORDS OPENS IN
HASTINGS ON HUDSON, NY
A brand new record store has just opened in Hastings On Hudson, NY… not far from New York City called Clock-Work Records. It’s a small store packed with those hard to find records, CD’s, posters, and artwork. They have an amazing selection of those rare hardcore and punk records everyone wished they had. Most are hanging from the wall. Just a quick look around I saw 7”s by The Mad, Minor Threat, Breakdown, Black Flag, and 7 Seconds. Just a few of the LP’s I saw were Warzone “Don’t Forget the Struggle”, Celtic Frost “Morbid Tales”, and a Motorhead Christmas 12”. Though they have a ton of hardcore, punk and metal that’s not all they have. They have rock, jazz, and whatever can think of. While I was there I picked up the Cro-Mags Demo 10”, a Rory Gallagher LP and a Rainbow LP. So they got something for anyone that likes music. It was opened by Mike Rep who has been going to hardcore punk shows since the early 80’s and has always wanted a record store. He can help you with any questions you have on what to buy. And you’ll never know who you’ll run into when your there. While I was there, there were members of Breakdown, Killing Time, and 76% Uncertain there just hanging out and shopping. It was cool to hear some stories from “back in the day”. The store is only a quick train ride (or car ride) from NYC. You can walk from the train station, buy some records then take a quick walk down Warburton Ave and grab a bite to eat or hit a bar. So I recommend you take the trip. We need more stores like this around. –Scoot Horton.
