Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Having worked in record stores since the late ’80s, Rocksteady Record’s proud owner Pat Monaghan is a laidback, thoughtful and thoroughly knowledgeable music devotee. The store will stock mostly vinyl (new and second hand) and turntables, while Monaghan promises that his black-wax baby will focus on local talent, including bands not signed yet to big distributors, as well as a great line in reggae (it is called rocksteady records, after all), funk, soul, rock, jazz, hip hop, indie and new wave. 

 “A real driver for me was that when I was growing up, you could go to the city and do a tour of the CBD’s record stores,” he says. “I wanted to bring back more of a circuit – so now there’ll be Missing Link, Collectors Corner, Wax Museum Records, Off the Hip, Basement Discs and you can finish up at Rocksteady Records”.
