FACT TV: Montreal's Best Record Stores

1,205 views 4 days ago
FACT's US team took the short drive up to Canada this summer, and decided to nose around in Montréal's selection of record stores.

Of course, to go on any good shopping trip away from home you need a guide, and we were ushered around the city by musician and label boss Jean-Sébastien Truchy, better known as JS. Some of you might remember JS from his pioneering work with Fly Pan Am on Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Constellation imprint, and since that set of records, he's been busy recording solo material and running the stunning tape label Los Discos Enfantasmes.

JS took us to three different stores, and had us rifling through the used bins looking for copies of a very particular record, the inspiration for the unmistakable Futurama theme tune. We didn't do too badly, even managing to track down a rare LP from Keith Fullerton Whitman's early noise rock band El Ron.
