Welcome to Slipped Discs

Slipped Discs' Brown Sugar full logo

Are you sick of hundreds of copies of the same generic sounds? Tired of uninterested staff who know nothing about music? Weary of hipper-than-thou London record stores that require blood allegiance to gain service?

The solution is closer than you think:


Slipped Discs is the home of good music in the heart of Billericay High Street. An independent record shop stocking a full catalogue from A-Ha to The Zutons and ZZ Top to Athlete on CD and vinyl, and even cassette! Proprietor Carl Newsum and colleagues are on hand to offer expert advice and a bespoke ordering service for anything not in store. We have a selection of films, concerts and music videos available on DVD and Blu-Ray too. From the latest releases to timeless classics, including collector’s items and rarities, this local business offers the music appreciation and expertise big chains can’t- we know our Rolling Stones from our Rumble Strips and we’re happy to share our knowledge. 

If you’ve noticed that Slipped Discs smells more appealing than your average friendly high street record shop then make your way through to the back and you’ll find Slipped Discs’ Brown Sugar- the place to go for good coffee and good company locally. Our hugely popular, accessible coffee shop and café serves up freshly ground coffee and a selection of teas and other drinks along with freshly made sandwiches and panini and best of all- daily specials of homemade soup and cakes (and muffins, and biscuits, and brownies and the famous almond slice…) made by manager Karen. With striking interior design, comfortable sofas and plush armchairs, a sun terrace and of course a background of great music, there’s no better place to relax and catch up.

Come in for the comprehensive catalogue of music, stay for the incomparable homemade cakes.


One of Billericay’s longest running local businesses, Slipped Discs is populated by specialists dedicated to providing personalised service, supporting local bands and music events and going the extra mile for customers. We offer an online and mail order service for busy people and those too far away to drop in- we can ship discs all over the world! If you can’t get no musical satisfaction, follow the lead of hundreds of loyal customers and come together at Slipped Discs, there’s no doubt we’ll start you on an auditory journey guaranteed to make you smile.
