Derek talks about setting up a bookshop

Yeah so putting as many book shelves as we could you know…we’d borrow a saw or something and we were sawing away …I had 500 quid and we put that into books but is really not a lot even in 1979, so we had them all facing the front, in order to fill the shelves. And then we had a big opening day, and we had a couple hundred people there because we knew a lot of people around about the community and obviously our association with Soap Box, and we knew musicians and artists, all sorts of people, anyway, so we had around couple hundred people coming to the shop that day. And right following the opening day the shop started to do quite well, you know, and we put all the money we made way back into books, and we obviously not longer had to face front…we put them properly on the shelves.
