With the first week of Lockdown underway just to let you know we are still active behind the scene -new arrivals, orders and pre orders are unaffected . The end of Lockdown is currently 9th November so fingers crossed we can kick on again from there.

Wow, that was different, but thankfully this end ran quite smoothly after a certain amount of trepidation as 8am got closer this morning. I know its not what we wanted but cant thank everyone enough for going with the idea of a TEXT queue. As texts came in i was imagining the chat that would have taken place which is always a big part of the day for us. So, its almost done we have updated our RSD page to reflect whats left (just single copies of each), those sold have the title struck through. I hope this also worked for you and dont forget if you missed out on anything many Independent Record shops will be selling RSD titles online from 6pm tonight, me i'm off for a lie down!

Our option of a TEXT QUEUE for RSD will start at 8am in the morning so any titles we have up to a maximum of 5 sorted on a first come first served basis. As it is something of a lottery this time we can only accept TEXTS from 8am and beyond NOT BEFORE. We will respond as quickly as possible but please bear with us as this is an untried method brought on by the unusual times we find ourselves in. But if unsuccesful with your RSD requests dont panic as many Independent Record Shops will be selling RSD titles online from 6pm Saturday 24th October. For more information on those participating online visit the official Record Store Day Website.

Not ideal or as much fun but here is how we will approach the final RSD Drop.
1. TEXT 07904688739 WITH WANTS from 8am this SATURDAY (check our RSD list first)
2. This will place you in a queue to select your preferred titles.
3. TEXT ARTIST NAME ONLY to keep it brief (only ONE of any title)
4. MAX of 5 titles per TEXT but ok to send a seperate text for any additional titles.
5. We will respond as soon as possible to inform if the titles requested can be provided.
6. Logistics,pick ups,payment will be sorted on an individual basis.
7. These are all very limited, so if you text good luck!
*Any titles over will be listed on our website from 6pm that evening. Most independent shops
participating will have titles online from 6pm too.
It may take a little while to respond, this will depend on interest but we will let you know as soon as possible.
PLEASE NOTE-PLEASE DONT COME TO THE SHOP ON THE DAY AS WE WILL BE CLOSED FOLLOWING WELSH GOVERNMENT LOCKDOWN RULES.

With temporary closure of our shop at the weekend for a 16 day Fire Break (Welsh Government restrictions) we will be open for 3 days this week to give the opportunity (if needed) for collection of orders/pre orders/new releases or just a general browse.
*Information about the last RSD Drop will be posted out on Wednesday.
With todays announcement that Non essential shops will close in Wales from 6pm this Friday 23rd October we will now have to revert to Plan B for the 3rd RSD Drop as we will be unable to open this Saturday. We have been anticipating this and will post out details by Wednesday of our alternative arrangements.
This will also mean we will not re open our Record Shop until the week of 9th November, We will of course be working behind the scene and taking orders and pre orders through our website which could be collected when we reopen for business.

The old saying that goes NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS doesnt really apply here but thought only right to keep you updated in a week that would have been the visit to Bromborough. Just to re confirm that we now have NO Record Fairs this year.The current restrictions and travel/lockdowns reinforce our early decision to postpone all Record Fairs for 2020. Difficult as it is it was the right decision in light on what has and is happening. Factors include travel to and from different areas for fair goers and Record dealers,venue restrictions and the safety of all. Although our events cannot be compared to the gigs/live music we are all missing the outlook is the same. There are a few other Record Fairs happening across the UK but mostly these are outdoors more akin to a market stall setup. These are reliant on the British weather which in iteself brings its own issues
for vinyl sales outdoors.
So,for now much as we would love to give you some encouraging news for our Record Fairs but at the moment its still ...lets wait and see.
