Shop Locations
Ewen took over the Alloa shop at 41, high street in September 1982.
In 1989 the shop shared premises with Jill Brachini clothes for 6 months also in the high street.
We then moved to Primrose Street which is well remembered with many of our regulars.
September 1992 was our first arrival in Stirling with a shop in the old arcade.
3years later we then moved to our current location in Friars Street!
The shop was named after the original owners lotus europa car.
Music
Between our staff every genre of music is loved... We all have our favourites from classical, folk, world, jazz to dance, rock (Heavy, Death, Punk), blues, indie and (good) pop!:D
Ewen
Our resident musical encyclopædia! Quizmeister and all round Expert DJ.
Also known as rainbow jumper man:L !
Ask a question about any type of music and he is rarely caught out... please try he enjoys the challenge!
Taryn
Going through a wee bit of a folk phase at the moment, still liking rock and punk etc. Only three genres of music not appreciated: Opera, harcore dance + avant-garde jazz (i.e. random plinkty plonkty noises) Likes things neat and tidy.
Gill
Our cheery saturday girl, also our longest suffering member of staff. Madonna Fan who is partial to a bit of dance music.:D
James
Newest member of the team. Resident Avant-Garde, Noize, Doom and Drone freak. His Beard might consume you.
Alastair
Returning to the shop after half a year away adventuring Alastair loves most types of music but has a particular fondness for his classic singer/songwriters (Dylan, Young, Waits etc).

  • Future Europa blog posts

    Given the lack of recent posts on here, I thought I should ask what you the masses would wish to see from future Europa posts.

    Whether I be Alastair espousing the latest fantastic albums through to Taryn or James singing the praises of their favourite folksie/punk/metal/drone releases or even taking the piss out of the usual chart pish, what would you like to read?

    it's entirely possible that you even might like to see me disparage absolutely everything I don't agree with!

    Or you might even just want us to bitch about the current state of TV and how we could make it better by "removing" Simon Cowell!

    Let us know and we shall attempt to accommodate your needs! Is that not after all what the internet is for?

  • NATIONAL INDEPENDENT RECORD SHOP DAY bin the Multinationals


    Henry Rollins
    “I have watched independent record stores evaporate all over America and Europe. That's why I go into as many as I can and buy records whenever possible. If we lose the independent record store, we lose big. Every time you buy your records at one of these places, it's a blow to the empire.”

    kt Tunstall
    "Independent record stores are like a casino where you put down your money and you always win. How amazing to discover gems you didn't know about, to meet someone more passionate than you are, and to feel at home in a place you may never have been to before. I'm convinced they will never lose their place - Long may they rule."

    Joe Satriani
    “Independent record stores are a vital source of the ever-changing cool. They respond to the street faster than the chains can. They help us telegraph to each other what's "now" and what's not, what we should be telling our friends and neighbors about, and what's about to take off, or, no longer hot. Musical trends are confirmed at the local independent record store, by you and me. Hanging out, listening to something you've never heard before, being enlightened by the staff, getting into something new, finding that old recording you've been searching for, having your local band's newest offering stocked right next to major label stuff, it all happens at the local indie shop. Why would we want to do away with all that?”

    Sam Phillips (A&R/producer for Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, and many others)

    “There would be no Elvis. There would be no Johnny Cash. There’d be no B.B King. There’d be no Roscoe Gordon. There’d be no Carl Perkins. There would be no Jerry Lee Lewis. There would be no Roy Orbison. I can just tell you. We owe all of that to the independents and the independent people that work so hard for us to have something that could be accepted through their efforts,hard work, and desire to keep a personal feeling in every record..”


    Bruce Springsteen
    "I buy CDs all the time. I'll go into a record store and just buy $500 worth of CDs. I will! I am singlehandedly supporting what's left of the record business.
    I hate to see record stores disappear, and I'm old-school in that I think you should pay for your music. But what my kids do is download a lot of things, pay for them, and then if they love something, they'll get the CD. That may be the future.”

    Ian Gillan (Deep Purple)
    "Buy real records in real shops, or I'll come round your house and scream at your mother."


    Mikko Siren (APOCALYPTICA)
    "I still find it most rewarding to go to my local record shop where I can talk to people who know all about the music they're representing, and where I can get answers to my questions without spending 45 minutes trying to find a link to customer service which would send me an auto-reply in three days.
    Support your local record shop to keep musical environment vivid!"




    PLEASE come in and see us, we need your love!
