Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Noel and Liam Gallagher bought one of those hopeless Beatles interview picture discs for 2 pounds. At the time the only thing they'd had released was a track on a free cassette from the NME so I guess they didn't have much money.

Behind the counterculture is a recurring series of celebrity encounters or near encounters in or close to a West London used book and record store.
