Bull City Records, Durham, North Carolina
Open – 2600 Hillsborough Rd., Durham NC 27705
A long time ago and many moons I went to Duke. This store was not there then, but it is now (along with my son who’s also going to Duke) so we stole a few moments. A good selection with a lot of newer vinyl. Picked up some good stuff and heard about some more. Highlights included the New Pornographers – Mass Romantic, Muck and the Mires – A Cellarful of Muck (garage revival), Franz Ferdinand – Right Thoughts, Right Words Right Action and Blitzen Trapper – American Goldwing. Worthy of a visit.
Here’s an article that appeared in Indy Week in August 2016 A Decade In Bull City Records Keeps Booming interviewing the owner of the store Chaz Martenstein, about his store and its history.
