Rough Trade Shops

October 29th, 2010 by Bryan Bedell

We’ve been busy with several FIELD NOTES customizations lately, and one of our favorites is pictured above. Rough Trade’s first record shop opened in 1976 and became legendary in punk, reggae, post-punk, and indie circles. A record label followed in 1978, putting out records by The Smiths, Scritti Politti, Swell Maps, Stiff Little Fingers, Cabaret Voltaire, and hundreds more great bands. The label was spun off from the store in 1982, but Rough Trade Shops’ two London locations are still gobbing in the face of a declining music retail industry, providing a carefully-curated selection for discerning music junkies. We’re ecstatic to know our humble notebooks will soon be on their shelves.

If you think your logo, slogan, or cattle brand would look at home on a FIELD NOTES notebook, drop Michele a line, she’ll be happy to go over the details with you.
