‘Thank you Breeks’: Deacon Blue star Ricky Ross wants people to list records bought from Groucho’s in Dundee

Deacon Blue lead singer Ricky Ross has called on people to list the records they bought in Groucho’s in memory of Alastair Brodie.

Mr Brodie, also known as ‘Breeks’, owned the iconic Groucho’s on the Nethergate and sold vinyl records in Dundee for 43 years.

Since his passing on Tuesday night, a number of tributes have been made from people in Dundee and further afield.

One of these was BBC Radio DJ Marc Riley, who dedicated a show to the 65-year-old on Thursday. Audio is above this article.

Dundonian Mr Ross took to Twitter to pay tribute. Above a picture of the album cover for Bruce Cockburn’s Sunwheel Dance, he wrote: “As my old chum @warbeckuk
has reminded me, I bought this album at #grouchos.

“As a tribute to the late #BreeksBrodie I want to start a thread on the important records we’ve found at Groucho’s. Thank you Breeks… life would have been so empty without this music.”

The tweet drew a host of responses.

Neil Forsyth: “Numerous records from the Marketgait shop, but also gig tickets and most importantly for me the one shop in Dundee that sold football fanzines from all over Scotland. A life changing place.”

Michael Binnie: “Although I picked up a ton of Bargains (including a while label 7″ of Leave them all behind by Ride) it was his foray into gig tickets in the 90s and more importantly, bus travel to take us there and back. As a teenager, it opened up so many avenues for me.”

Scott Cameron: “It’s important to remember his clothes shop “Breeks” where unconventional folks like myself could find garments that expressed who we were and there was no other place like it in town.”
