Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) March 25, 2008 Edition


  1. Will you sell my stuff? Most likely, yes. We do consignment which we will work out on the spot. Come in, we'll talk. If you live far away, like more than a days drive, seek out the help of a distributor.

  1. Will you buy my old cds, records, tapes, dvds, etc.? How much? We sell used merchandise and the only way to restock it is to buy used items from people like you. We will give you a fair but modest price (different items have different ranges – talk to us about it). We are currently not accepting cassettes (video or audio) or other currently less-accessible formats (mini-discs, reel-to-reel, wax cylinders… actually, if you have some really interesting or worthwhile items we’ll look at ‘em and give you an offer).

  1. Why did you open a record store? We love music. We love being involved with music. We've each been involved with the underground music scene for a combined 20+ years. This is a logical continuation of our involvement; helping the central/southern CT scene grow and prosper.

  1. Will you record my band? We do not record bands, but we could possibly recommend some people who do. Come down to the store and talk to us about it.

  1. Will you book my band? We do book an occasional show. We mostly book locals so if you are an out of state band you are most likely out of luck, unless we're ol' friends from way back when.

  1. Do you have Gift Certificates? Why yes we do and we'd love for you to buy them for all of your loved ones for their birthday, holidays or as a random act of kindness. They are wonderful for everyone – even pets love them.

  1. Can I buy Manic Productions tickets at your store? Let me check with the manager. Yes, we have those in stock. How many should I put you down for? A hundred? Sounds good.

  1. Will you sell tickets for my show/concert/production? We will consider selling tickets for your event on a case by case basis. We’ll talk it over with you and each other to make sure it’s a good idea all around and go from there.

  1. Do you really have Pinball? Yes! We had a Pinball Tournament as well and it was won by Erik Reich. Come play our machine. It is fun and has flashing lights and sounds. Hopefully we'll get a new machine soon. UPDATE ON THE PINBALL AND ARCADE MACHINES: We have Lord of the Rings Pinball. So does the Movie Theatre down the street, but there are so many damn looky-loos there and distractions. We will give you tips and tricks if you want. We also had it first. I'm not joking. We rule. If you can get the Grand Champion score on the machine we'll give you a free record or compact disc of your choosing (within reason/our discretion). The arcade machine we have now (Ultracade) rules. It's only a quarter to play some pretty great classic games. It's got some pretty great weird non-U.S. released stuff too! Challenge us to Bubble Bobble and it's very likely we'll pay for it. UPDATE NUMBER 2: Nobody has beaten the Grand Champ score on LotR and if you do the prize is still up for grabs.

  1. How's business? Stop asking this question. Not to be mean, but it's the MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION…roughly ten million times a day. Honest.

  1. What is the deal with your musical classifications? The deal is this: Some kinds of music just fit together and since we can do what we want we did so there. Cake is delicious.

  1. Do you do special orders? For you, yes. Only for you though. Unless you know someone else who wants to make a special order then we can make an exception because they know you.

  1. What kind of records do you carry? We carry round records, oddly shaped and sized records, rare records, re-issued and new records. We have vintage rock and new punk. We have hot beats and smooth jams.

  1. Do you have actual records? Yeah we do. They even make new ones to this day and we carry them. They are very collectible. You should start a collection.

  1. What does "Redscroll" mean? I have no idea. But you can consider it just the pre-fix to "Records." It's a way to identify the shop. I love Redscroll Records. You should too.

  1. Do you have a website? Yes we do, RedscrollRecords.com

  1. Do you do mail order? We don’t have a problem doing mail order for people who live too far away to make it into the store. Let us know what it is you want and we’ll go from there.

  1. Is it true you also do a zine? Yes, we do. It’s centered on the goings on of life in Connecticut. Feel free to mail us your demo, CD, DVD, record, etc… and we’ll review it in the next issue. You must be from CT though.

  1. Are you hiring? Not at the moment, but please drop off your resume. You might be too good to resist.
