Your one stop, while you wait, record cleaning service

Named after Original Rockers, his forthcoming book about the inner life of a record shop published by Faber & Faber on April 2 2015, Richard King presents the ‘Original Rockers Vinyl Shine’ at Independent Label Market Nov 29 2014.


A professional, deep groove vinyl cleaning service that will restore your records to the clearest, freshest audio, improve their grading and have you listening with a smile.

Large orders undertaken, fast service, deep cleansing

The Original Rockers Vinyl Shine Service:

Step 1. Your record is passed through a Furutech DeMag LP Demagnetizer (Furutech DeMag)

Step 2. Your record is given a deep clean by the industry standard Clearaudio Smart Matrix Professional record cleaner (Clearaudio Smart Matrix Professional)

Step 3. We rehouse your newly cleaned vinyl in a brand new poly-lined inner sleeve

Each record takes around 4 – 5 mins to pass through our service, should your vinyl need an extra deep clean due to e.g. first generation dust, loose mohair, beer paws, red seal residue, wine glass fingertips or general late night handling, we will send it through the Smart Matrix Professional for another cleansing at no extra cost.

Leave your records with us for a service then browse the tables of the ILM or spend some high grade down time at the adjoining London Brewers Market (conveniently situated near to our stall).

The Original Rockers Vinyl Shine Service Rates:

1 LP £4
3 LPs £10
7 LP £20

7+ LPs happily considered – £ subject to negotiation
12”s also happily considered – £ subject to negotiation

We have a limited amount of pre-loved, hardwearing, thick PVC vinyl covers manufactured in the 1990s that we will include FOC on a first-come, first-served basis (these are now sadly discontinued, but are more robust and far more handsome than the rather flimsy covers on the market today).

Bring your wax then relax, as your VG+ records brush up a grade to NM
