Rotate This has rules. Who gets to buy that rarest vinyl from the hidden back room? Which bands get to sell their demos on consignment? As a teen punk, Damian Abraham spent whole days in the indie record shop – riffling through the bins, trading gig flyers, catching free all-ages shows by his soon-to-be favourite out-of-town bands.

Damian has passed all Brian’s tests but he’s got one Rotate dream left: play a gig in the shop like the bands he grew up on. How can he convince them? Featuring a rare sighting of the infamously camera-shy Taylor and live performance that may or may not have all been a dream…
