Vinyl Villains

Located on Elm Row at the top of Leith walk Vinyl Villains is now probably Edinburgh’s longest running independent record shop, having been open since 1983.

They mostly sell pre-owned vinyl across a wide range of genres including including classic, indie and progressive rock, punk, metal, blues, jazz, reggae, soul, hip-hop, folk, world music and soundtracks. Speaking from experience, the pre-owned stock has usually been pre-loved too and is in great condition.

A choice selection of new vinyl is also available including recent releases and classic re-issues.

Vinyl is king here but they also have a smaller range of CDs and DVDs as well as a range of awesome t-shirts.
