Nick's Music Basement
Not a physical shop, but Hamilton's first internet music store, run by Nick Johnston. The store is highly supportive of Hamilton music, stocking albums by bands including The Shrugs, The Gills, Amy Racecar, This Night Creeps and Dynamo Go early in its existence. The site was launched with a party at Ward Lane on 12 April 2008.
