WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"Friendly owner, bought a record player in perfect condition which he sold to me for a generous price and a vinyl to go along with it which he kindly gave to me for free as it was my first ever purchase of one. There is also a large collection of Vinyls from the Beatles to Billy Idol and all reasonably priced. Definitely worth visiting!!"

Happy to take a look at your unwanted records and collections and purchase for fair prices.
HOW WE STARTED
Wired Records (formerly West Town records), was started by record lover Mick Weston, and after a major refurbishment the shop opened at the end of April 2019.
Mick's passion for music started at around the age of 10 when he was hooked by the emotional effect music can have on you, which was realised when he got over excited to Slade's 'Gudbye T Jane', resulting in a broken table and subsequent first detention. His passion for collecting music really took hold when helping out at his uncle's shop in the mid 70's- though we won't mention the first record he ever bought! Years spent as a DJ opened his musical tastes up, finding passion for northern soul, Disco, Reggae and Ska, and further experience in various bands playing punk, heavy rock and alternative music has resulted in an appreciation and wealth of knowledge of many genres.
WHERE TO FIND US
We are situated on Mayor's Walk, a short walk from Peterborough City Centre, and only 10 minutes from Queensgate shopping centre.
