Crash Records has been a part of the Leeds music scene for 30 years. Our first shop opened on Woodhouse Lane in 1985. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since. For those of you who are not sure of our exact location, we are directly opposite Sports Direct.

We carry a broad range of CDs and vinyl (7”/12” singles and LPs) and specialise in indie, alternative, rock, punk, metal plus a few other genres. We also keep an ever-changing range of local stock in the shop.  If there is something that we don’t have in stock, we can usually order it from one of the many record labels and suppliers that we deal with.

If you wish to check availability of any title please email We will let you know if we have it in (or if we can order it) and what the price would be. Alongside CDs and vinyl we stock a range of official merchandise.

As a ticket agent for all the major venues in the area (and Leeds Festival) we receive allocations for a wide variety of gigs and events. Tickets can be purchased over the counter in the shop or on our website. We always aim to get our tickets out to people straight after the order has been processed.

Being an independent record shop, we take pride in the service that we give to customers old and new. Please feel free to call into the shop, pick up the phone or fire off an email if you have any questions we may be able to help you with.
