Anecdotes from Behind the Retail Frontline

Ivor Cutler complained about the music being played in the shop. He said that there shouldn't be music in shops at all. For somebody who seemed to be so into silence I wondered why he had made so many records and so many radio shows.


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.
