Almost a year after it's closure I still really miss the Pure Groove store and I know I'm not the only one. It's such a shame it had to close, it still feels like there's a gap in London's music scene that hasn't really been filled properly. Getting the chance to hear lots of new music and fairly often have a quick chat with the band in your lunch hour was just the best way to perk up an otherwise boring work day.
Here are some of the awesome artists I've been introduced to thanks to instores:
Mumford & Sons
Emmy The Great
Cymbals Eat Guitars
I do realise living in London I'm more spoilt for live music than most but I just miss Pure Groove, that's all. I should add that they are still spreading the word about excellent new music to the world via their online store at http://puregroove.co.uk/. Check it out.
