Tommes Records (Germany)
Die Musikgarage ist ein kleines Ladengeschaft fur Tontrager mit richtigen Musikfreaks hinter der Theke, eine Art kleines gallisches Dorf in einer Welt voller Supermegastores, in denen die blendende Helligkeit der Raumlichkeiten im krassen Gegensatz zu der des Verkaufspersonals steht. Neben dem Ladengeschaft betreibt Inhaber Dominik Engel im kleinen Mas naturlich auch Versandhandel, aber den Charme des eines Plattenladen kann man dabei nat&urlich nicht wirklich erfassen. Darum auch wenn das Betreten mit allerlei Risiken verbunden ist, einfach mal hingehen.
