MOON RECORDING STUDIO
Moon Recording Studios Records was a DIY label. It managed one single. This Record Was Made By Beanos Record Store Croydon. It issued singles in an MOON-000 numerical series Limited edition of 1000 copies. Beanos was a second-hand record shop, once the largest in Europe, located in the South London suburb of Croydon. It was founded by David Lashmar in 1975 (a former member of the short-lived British musical group Dead Sea Fruit) and continued to expand through three increasingly larger shops ending up in an old printing works in Middle Street during the 1990s. After over thirty years of trading, Beanos faced the threat of closure in 2006, although the immediate threat was averted by concentrating the store's focus on rare vinyl records rather than Compact Discs which were being undercut by large music chains and supermarkets. However, in November 2008 Lashmar posted a notice on the website stating the store would have to close after Christmas of that year as sales had not picked up. The shop finally closed in the Autumn of 2009. Moon Recording Studios Former Address: 41 Leslie Park Road Croydon CR0 6TP. Distributed By Beanos Record Store.
