Letchworth Music Shop
David’s Music is an institution, tucked away in the most unassuming of provincial towns. Some sources claim there are more trees than people in Letchworth but that doesn’t stop people making their pilgrimages from far and wide to come and check out our outrageously comprehensive range of new and second hand CDs and vinyl, as well as our regular instores which thus far have seen acts ranging from young upstarts like Hadouken to established bands like Ash, The Thrills and Get Cape... getting sweaty in our premises. Between us our knowledge is as comprehensive as our stock, we love what we do and we’re good at it so come and pay us a visit.
Not only are we a Record Shop though. We stock a huge range of DVDs (films, music and special interest) and music books.

Songwriter and Musician, Viv Albertine talks about and signs her new book, Clothes, Music, Boys

In 1975, Viv Albertine was obsessed with music but it never occurred to her she could be in a band as she couldn't play an instrument and she'd never seen a girl play electric guitar. A year later, she was the guitarist in the hugely influential all-girl band the Slits, who fearlessly took on the male-dominated music scene and became part of a movement that changed music. A raw, thrilling story of life on the frontiers and a candid account of Viv's life post- punk - taking in a career in film, the pain of IVF, illness and divorce and the triumph of making music again - Clothes Music Boys is a remarkable memoir.
Viv Albertine was the guitarist in hugely influential punk band The Slits. A confidante of the Sex Pistols and the Clash, Viv was a key player in British punk culture. Alongside The Slits, she collaborated with numerous musicians, including Adrian Sherwood, before marking out a career in television and film production. After a hiatus of twenty-five years, Viv’s first solo album, The Vermillion Border, was released in 2012 to great critical acclaim.
