‘RBMA - Terri Hooley’ by Ross Killeen

In the late 1970s Terri Hooley opened up a record shop “Good Vibrations” on the most bombed street in Europe at the time. The record shop was a major focal point for the local music scene. Inspired by the people he met through the shop and the talent he saw in Belfast, he set up a label of the same name. The label went on to release music from numerous bands from the Belfast punk and ska scene.A self confessed “terrible businessman” Terri oversaw the shop open and close 11 times and the label never really generated much income. Despite all that, Terri kept going.We spent a weekend with Terri in his beloved city of Belfast. He showed us around some of his old haunts and shed new insights on his life in music. For a 65 year old man, Terri still has the energy and enthusiasm of a young punk.
