A new record store is opening in Bristol. Run by local DJs Kane Orchard (AKA Kayne the Hermit) and Corey Miller (AKA Morey Cillar), Disk Frisk will open its doors in late April or early May and sell mostly second-hand records from the ’70s to the early ’00s. .
After initially running a virtual storefront via Instagram, the pair eventually decided to open a bricks-and-mortar shop. Pat Muncaster, one of the building directors said, “The shop space is part of a larger building soon to fully open as The Old Drumbank Studios, a new mixed-use co-working and creative space in Bristol.”
“It was formerly home to one of the city’s most well-known and long-running musical equipment shops, band rehearsal and practice rooms. However, after being vacated early on in the Covid-19 Pandemic and left empty for over a year, it began to descend into a state of disrepair. It’s now being completely refurbished, with a new lease of life being breathed into it.”
He also added: “We wanted to do something cool with the old shop space, and so it felt like a natural fit to work with Disk Frisk and keep that part of the building as a space serving Bristol’s music community. It also ties in with one of our core aims in taking on the building, which was to be able to support and provide platforms for up and coming businesses.”
