Metal enthusiasts and hipshakers alike are oft found rummaging through the stacks of Melbourne’s largest second-hand record chain. Each of Dixons’ four stores has a slightly different specialist bent, making it that much easier to finetune your quest for vinyl success. The Blackburn warehouse is a hangout for hard rock and metal puritans, while Fitzroy plays host to a plethora of punk and experimental sounds; Dandenong houses a healthy quota of reissues, and for a more rounded range, the Camberwell store’s your answer. Like any great second-hand store, they’ll offer you a decent sum for any circular gold you care to offload – provided, of course, it arrives in mint condition.
