Spin Inn
1st September 1983

Advert for Spin Inn, 1983. Spin Inn was a key influence on the music played in Manchester's gay clubs at this point. As import specialists they were able to access the US disco and hi-NRG 12" records that the gay crowds craved.

This is how stock buyers in record shops helped to shape the sound of Manchester's underground scenes.

Note the article above which details Radio 1's discussion on attitudes towards gay people.
