Sole proprietor Stuart Smith established Seismic Records in 2005 supplying vinyl and CDs to an expanding customer base in the UK and worldwide.
The shop in Spencer Street is one of the last remaining truly independent record shops in the Midlands. Seismic offers a diverse selection of good music.
The shop has gained respect and critical acclaim since opening with a number of articles in ATM and Knowledge music magazines, culminating in features in the Guardian and The Observer and appearing in the Guardian Shopping Directory 2007 which was a selection of the UK’s best Independent shops. It relocated to Spencer Street, next to the Assembly in 2012.
