Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

Picked up this tweet from a Twitter user called @clockworkLondon accompanied by a picture of the Paul Simon Estate Agents.

Quick google brought up this info:

Ruff, Tuff & Wicked Stuff Records

Profile: Oldskool Hardcore Label, Started In 1991 by Nick Power. Also linked to Buzz Records.

Music Power Record shop's label, originally based in Harringay, London. They then opened a second branch in Ilford, Essex in 1993. The record label was actually run from the third shop Music Power Sound & Light, a few doors away from the Ilford branch of the record shop. Record shop closed down in about 2001.

Anyone remember this shop/record label?

Thanks Polly. If you find any photos from that time, would love to see them :)

Try Nicky Clarke now via Totteham traders. He used to run Bangs nightclub along with a high energy record label above Tesco. I've posted about this before somewhere. Will have a search when I get home.

Found this..

Great - where's that from, Jack?

That's brilliant, JR!

Sorry, that's "Bolts" and Nicky Price.

Again, just scroll down till you get to 'Music Power'.

Great stuff Jack. Keep em coming. I bet your parents' photos too would be a treasure trove!

Getting some memories from Twitter

Preston remembers going there 'mid 80's to mid 90's ish"

Sean says: "Yeah went there a lot. King of the Dance White Labels. Goldie used to visit a lot" but he thinks it closed around 1993.
