Shove It Records have been beavering away developing their recording and rehearsal studio on Daisy Hill for some months - but today marked the opening of their music shop offering both vinyl and CD music to the public - and a breath of optimism with a new business showing faith in the town.
Daniel and James Brown live in Dewsbury and are two of the four man Adore/Repel band who describe themselves as 'post rock' offering instrumental with surprise vocal sections.
The band have inside knowledge of what it takes to make it in the music business and are returned from a tour in the USA last year and play regularly throughout the UK.

Luke Scott is the third member of the trio and works with James on developing the shop based business. Not surprisingly, you can also see our local videographer, Simon Reed taking a promo photograph on opening day ready for the video he's planning to make for them. A case of who's watching the watcher?
Shove It support local musicians by offering low cost or even free use of their recording studio on the first floor above the shop to help them develop their musical skills and even offer practical advice on the business of launching and maintaining a musical career.
Located at the top of Daisy Hill and just around the corner from the railway station, Shove It aim to be within easy reach for the student population making their way between the station and the new colleges in the Springfield Centre and Pioneer House and to become the focal point for music development in Dewsbury.
