Record Peddlar Redux 
As regulars to the shop will recall, one of the many services to the community provided by the mighty Record Peddlar - the eighties Manchester vinyl collector shop responsible for a large proportion of the Factory Records back-office items available today - was that of alternative music videotek.

The shop amassed a formidable archive of material on the (relatively) new VHS format which was regularly shown during opening hours.

On researching for an - as yet unwritten - Scream City piece I spent some time on a certain website seeing if any of my own personal RP favourite vid selections were available.

As a summer holiday/rainy day treat, cerysmaticFactory presents the Record Peddlar Redux top twenty video show. Enjoy!
