In my opinion, an absolutely fantastic chain of music stores, with the distinct advantage of not being HMV, Virgin or Tower.

They, are, however, somewhat hard to come by. Founded in a wee shop in Glasgow's West End in 1990, they spread quietly into major cities in Scotland and occasional bits of England.

The plus points? While most CD albums are around £14 in other stores, just about all of the chart CDs in Fopp are £10. There's a selection of classics for seven quid, and a huuuge amount of goodie but oldies for a fiver.

What's more, they have a Suck it and see policy. Don't like what you bought? Bring it back, they'll give you your lolly back. What more could you ask for?
