NEW Look Derricks To Mark 50 Years!!

Some of the most iconic albums of last half-century included in special birthday mural!

Music lover mecca Derricks Records has been getting people in our region to gigs for decades.

To celebrate its 50th birthday owner Christos Stylianou wanted to do something special. He told us thanks to Swansea BID and Fresh Murals -  the outside of the shop has been transformed into a work of art.

There's a wink to Welsh actor Richard Burton with the 'War of the Worlds' and Swansea band Man.

There are nods too for David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd and Iron Maiden.

Kate Bush's 'The Kick Inside' also features - along with Nirvana and Arctic Monkeys.

We spoke to Chris at the launch of the Swansea 50 celebrations at the Liberty Stadium - back in March.
