Clockwork Records – Hastings-On-Hudson Westchester New York
Open – 24 Main St., Hastings-On-Hudson, New York 10706
Not all record stores are dying. Clockwork Records is a new store that had opened about 3 years ago (2013) when I first wrote this post. On my first visit, I didn’t have time to give it a proper dig, but they had plenty of records, including picture sleeve 45s, packed into a store featuring a Clockwork Orange motif. You remember the futuristic record store scene in that movie, don’t you? By our Beethoven loving hero? Michael James, the store’s owner, is a nice guy pictured below. In the immortal words of Arnold “I’ll be back.”
Since I originally wrote this post, I have been back to Clockwork Records several times. Michael is a fan of punk, including the hardcore and skate punk that came out of Southern California in the early 1980s. (Think the Descendents). Last time I was there he had a great compilation – Rodney on the ROQ Vol 1 which he happily played and I happily bought.
He has records of all genres, including blues and jazz as well as rock and punk, which you can try before you buy. Have picked up quite a few nice records reasonably priced.
