Short and maybe not so sweet this week….baby watch is over, kick off was 9 pm last Thursday night, bit of extra time but baby Lily arrived at 00.38 Saturday morning, alls well thank god……but enough about moi…lets rock on

Missed ye last week but I think the main releases for tomorrow are PRINCE’S two new albums and MCR front man GERALD Way’s solo album.

Tempted to go on about Prince interfering with his guitar on a giant bed down da Pairc whilst the crowd sang ole ole but short and sweet Raymond…short and…


Warner has a nice few for the 3rd October including Mr. Johnny Marr’s second offering (no blue Vinyl for us over here, the Scots will get some alright though for being good boys and girls)

Last few copies of EXCELLENT Cork bands SHAKER HYMN and ELASTIC SLEEP in store…well worth checking out.

I’m back to the fold properly next Monday but check out any new Vinyl stock on https://musiczone.ie

Last word tonight is for baby Lily, and its more of a sweet plea than a sweet poem….no x factor baby, no problem losing sleep over everything else but the music’s shite and that will keep me up all night…..even though already I think I know I would succumb….anyway.

Sin e,


Ray and special guest on my lap for the last 10 mins or so Lily.
