As you’ve no doubt worked out by now, we love record shops. Whether big or small, rocking a minimalist aesthetic or packing enough vinyl into their overflowing crates to wear down several lifetime’s worth of needles, we love how each and every one has something special in store for its customers. From the quirkiest locals to the big, gig-hosting powerhouses, every thirty-odd days we pick one to be our Record Store of the Month. They get a tasty gift from the Record Tokens team, and you get to discover the best independent record shops this country has to offer – it’s a win-win!


June's Record Store of the Month: Heathen Chemistry Records, Fareham

Heathen Chemistry Records

We're in sunny Hampshire this month to celebrate our winning Record Store of the Month. Heathen Chemistry Records first opened their doors in June 2017 (happy 4th birthday!) and were all set to move premises at the start of 2020... when the pandemic hit. Owner Simon had the unenviable task of moving the whole shop entirely by himself in April, but happily they're now all settled in and preparing for what will hopefully be a much less turbulent summer onwards, starting with the first RSD Drops this month.

Since opening, Heathen Chemistry Records have made a name for themselves locally as Fareham's friendly, one-stop shop for vinyl lovers, with a brilliant range of both new and used vinyl plus REGA turntables and more. 

The Heathen Chemistry Records team

Congratulations to Simon and the rest of the team at Heathen Chemistry (pictured l-r: Steve, Joe, Simon, Debbie and Sophie) and we hope you enjoy what sounds like a well-deserved hamper of delectable treats!


You can find Heathen Chemistry Records at 186 West Street, Fareham. If you're local, be sure to pop in and give them a visit – and don't forget your Record Tokens!
