If Utopia Records in Challis Arcade, Martin Place was Sydney’s heavy metal mecca, then surely Melbourne’s Metal For Melbourne rivalled it ! (Impact Records in Canberra was not solely focused on metal but music in general and was maybe THE BEST Australian record store of all time – but I’ll discuss this later). This clipping I unearthed I reckon is circa 1986, cos of the Ozzy reference. I know that I used to spend some good dollars in there but – unless you ordered your music via mail order – where else could you find it apart from cool shops like this ?! I probably last walked in there around 1991, and that was it. They’ve long since gone the way of the Dodo, but the memories – the excitement of walking into a cool record store and wondering what you might find ! Another Rockbrat memory….
