A new record store called Disk Frisk is opening in late April or early May on Gloucester Road in Bristol.
Run by local DJs Kane Orchard (A.K.A. Kayne the Hermit) and Corey Miller (A.K.A. Morey Cillar), the shop will specialize in used recordings ranging from the 1970s to the early 2000s.
Before opening a brick-and-mortar store, the two ran their business completely online. “We want to thank all the people who have bought from us and supported the Instagram which has ultimately allowed us to get this far and make the jump to a physical space so soon!” wrote the owners on Instagram. “The building will have other artists/studios and we aim to open mid April/early May.”
Bristol’s Gloucester Road is renowned as a music and art hub with numerous studios, rehearsal spaces, music shops, and more attracting artists from around the world. Speaking with Resident Advisor, building director Pat Muncaster expressed hope for the store’s opening.
“After being vacated early on in the COVID-19 pandemic and left empty for over a year, [the storefront] began to descend into a state of disrepair,” he said. “It’s now being refurbished, with a new lease of life being breathed into it.”
