About Intoxica

Intoxica Shop Front Intoxica Shop Intoxica Shop 2 Intoxica Shop Basement

Intoxica, previously located on the Portobello Road in London, has been selling bespoke vinyl to discerning music fans since 1994. We now operate as an online business from Kentish Town.

We specialize in rare and collectible items. In addition to records, we also sell books and posters. We also sell the occasional CD, but only under duress.

We are always interested in buying good quality vinyl collections. Please contact us via phone or email to discuss.

If you're in the neighborhood, stop by and visit. However, there are a number of unwritten rules that you should be aware of:

  1. We sell records. Yes, those round black things your dad is always fiddling with. We do not, for the most part, sell CDs. Don't come in, take a look around, and then ask if we sell CDs, unless you're looking for whalloping great doses of sarcasm. Of course, if you're daft enough to ask this question, then you may not understand the concept of sarcasm. Your loss.
  2. It's not a good idea to argue with the people behind the counter. Chances are they've been working here longer than you've been buying records. They know more useless facts about vinyl than you'd care to. Accept what they say as fact, thank them, and for crying out loud don't ask the same question the next time you pop in.
  3. If the music is blasting,it's blasting for a reason. Your hangover be damned. Some people need to listen to "Half Machine Lip Moves" at maximum volume on Sunday mornings. You should try it some time.
  4. Do not, under any circumstances, ask if we stock Led Zeppelin records. Same goes for Journey, Styx, or any other dreadful bands we don't like. Response will be similar to the response detailed in (1) above.
  5. Smoking has yet to be banned in this shop. That means we might be smoking. It doesn't mean you can. It means we can. It's our shop, not yours.
  6. If you're an American, tread lightly. There's already a bloody Subway next door, and a g*d d*mned Starbucks next to that. Enough said.
  7. Yes, there's a fuzz box hooked into our stereo system. No, you can't see it. It's proprietary information.

If you take the above rules seriously, then you might not appreciate our sense of humour. Although we appear grouchy, we're really cuddly deep down inside. If we yell at you, it's only because we care about you.
