You might consider this Bleecker Street record shop if you’re interested in collectibles from an era when cherry-red lipstick and space-age glam first reigned supreme. The walls are decorated with rare vintage vinyl and limited-edition photos of Debbie Harry, the Cure, and of course, David Bowie. (His song “Rebel Rebel” provides the store with its name.) By no means, however, is Rebel Rebel stuck in the past. Music buffs shop here for new and used indie rock and world music, while here and there, handwritten tags clue the less-informed into the recordings for sale: An Antony CD might note “Boy George shares vocals”; a Mark Ronson “Stop Me” disc has a “Hot Smiths cover mixed by Chicken Lips.” If you can’t find anything inside, peruse the bargain bin out front, where twenty bucks can get you five CDs.
