CORONAVIRUS-WITHDRAWAL FROM RSD 2020
It is with a
heavy heart that we have taken the very difficult decision to NOT
participate in this Years RSD.We know this will disappoint many - none
more than us, we have had 10 years of wonderful days in April.
conversations with the UK organisers and the cut off date for ordering
in titles upon us,we have had to make a decision IN or OUT. With so many
uncertainties relating to social distancing/contact,events and the way
RSD may now be delivered under new rules that may or not apply we think
its best all round to make an early call on the situation. Record Store
Day for us has always been about interaction ,the queue,
friendships,selling in the shop face to face, chat and of course the
music. This year if things turn out to be far removed from this it is
not what we would want or i guess any of us would want.This decision
has been agonised over for days with lots going on behind the scenes
(and very little sleep).It will also mean cancellation of our Record
Fair (never have we cancelled anything before) and the Live Music which
was looking truly amazing. We can only thank Heartbeat Wunderbar, Alison
Cotton and The Fellowship of the Hallucinatory Voyagers for their very
kind offers to play on the day.
Disappointed doesnt even begin to cover it...
At this stage RSD is still happening elsewhere but under constant review, a postponement might have helped.
SO WHAT NEXT
shop carries on as all shops are at the moment, with the Mold Record
Fair cancelled we will review the situation with regard to the Wrexham
Fair planned for mid May. We are currently reaching out to contact as
many people to inform them about RSD.
IF ANYTHING CHANGES
We will let you know.
So, from all of us its a big sorry, but our hand was forced by things beyond our control,
