White Riot Documentary Online Streaming Rental!

Britain, late-1970s. Punk is exploding. The country is deeply divided over immigration. The National Front, a far-right political party, is gaining strength as politicians like Enoch Powell push a xenophobic agenda. Outraged by a racist speech from Eric Clapton, music photographer Red Saunders teams up with like-minded creatives to create Rock Against Racism. The RAR zine reports on stories and issues that the mainstream British media ignores, like immigration, the Catholic side of the Northern Ireland conflict, and the police’s controversial “suspected persons,” and speaks directly to the youth of Britain. The National Front begins to strike back, committing acts of violence against RAR supporters, but the momentum spreads virally across the UK and Europe, becoming a grassroots youth movement, while The Clash, Steel Pulse, and other top bands of the day jump on board. White Riot is a moment in time when a generation challenged the status quo, and music changed the world.

Featuring Interviews and Performances by:

THE CLASH – STEEL PULSE – POLY STYRENE – SHAM 69 – ALIEN KULUTRE – RED SAUNDERS – TOM ROBINSON BAND

ALL I CAN SAY (Blind Melon / Shannon Hoon) Documentary Streaming Rental!

We are glad to participate in the streaming of the new ALL I CAN SAY (BLIND MELON / SHANNON HOON) documentary! Click the link below to rent it from us!!!

Shannon Hoon, lead singer of the rock band Blind Melon, filmed himself from 1990-95 with a Hi8 video camera, recording up until a few hours before his sudden death at the age of 28. His camera was a diary and his closest confidant. In the hundreds of hours of footage, Hoon meticulously documented his life – his family, his creative process, his television, his band’s rise to fame and his struggle with addiction. He filmed his daughter’s birth, and archived the politics and culture of the 90’s, an era right before the internet changed the world. Created with his own footage, voice and music, this intimate autobiography is a prescient exploration of experience and memory in the age of video. It is also Shannon Hoon’s last work, completed 23 years after his death.

You can rent a streaming link and watch the trailer here:

Other Music Documentary & Vinyl Nation Documentary Streaming Rental!

This Saturday would have been Record Store Day and while we are bummed we can’t see all of your beautiful faces we still wanted to celebrate with you somehow! We are participating in the digital release of two documentaries about vinyl and record stores and the community they create worldwide and on a local level! We will be posting links to two movies “Other Music NYC Documentary” and “Vinyl Nation” that you can rent for a small price. Percentages of all rental sales support us and the filmmakers! The info and trailers to both films are listed below. Both documentary links will be posted Friday and will be available for a short amount of time for your viewing pleasure. 

Other Music Documentary:
Other Music was an influential and uncompromising New York City record store that was vital to the city’s early 2000s indie music scene. But when the store is forced to close its doors due to rent increases, the homogenization of urban culture, and the shift from CDs to downloadable and streaming music, a cultural landmark is lost. Through vibrant storytelling, the documentary captures the record store’s vital role in the musical and cultural life of the city, and highlights the artists whose careers it helped launch including Vampire Weekend, Animal Collective, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, William Basinski, Neutral Milk Hotel, Sharon Van Etten, Yo La Tengo and TV On The Radio.

Watch The Trailer here: https://vimeo.com/394019069

Purchase your viewing ticket here!

Vinyl Nation Documentary:
Vinyl Nation is a deep dig into the crates of the vinyl record resurgence to discover what an old technology says about our relationship to music and each other in a divided time in America.

Watch the trailer here: https://vimeo.com/406015222

Purchase your viewing ticket here!

The online screening will be available starting 12 midnight Eastern Sat. April 18 until 11:59 PM Pacific Sun. April 19. We will email ticket purchasers directly via Brown Paper Tickets with the screening URL and password on Fri. April 17. All proceeds will go to Vertical House Records!

We’re still here for you Huntsville!

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic numbers growing in our sweet home state we have decided it’s best to keep our doors closed for a couple of weeks at Vertical House Records.

Since most of our 25,000 albums don’t have barcodes, it’s a bit tough to get our inventory online in a fast manner but we will be working towards launching an online store soon. We will be accepting lists of your “apocalypse albums” and doing the crate digging for you. If we have it, we can generate an invoice on paypal and once it’s been paid, we can deliver or ship it out to you!

We also have gift certificates available should you want to buy one now and save it for when you can come dig yourself! You are welcome to paypal verticalhouse@gmail.com and note “gift certificate” and you will have instant credit with us woo!!

Keep an eye on our social media for more updates!
