Working Men’s Club have hit the top spot on the UK Record Store Chart after their self-titled debut album finally got its release last week.

Elsewhere, Idles drop to #3 after their UK chart double upon the release of Ultra Mono at the end of September, and Oasis are back in the chart once again with their second album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? thanks to its recent 25th anniversary reissue.

The Official Charts Company launched the UK Record Store Chart in 2012 to reflect the last decade’s drive to support independent music outlets and the concurrent surge in vinyl sales. It is compiled from the best selling albums at 100 of Britain’s leading independent music shops.
