Make Music Zone Great Again, Return of Metallica, and Black Friday RSD Bits!

Hey everyone,


How’s the form this evening?.. A late start for me at 22:43, so no moaning or groaning, just open, friendly, transparent attempts to sell ye folks some records, a bit like DJT.. Make Music Zone Great Again!… I’m getting the flyers printed up as I write this.. Roger Waters is calling in to give me a hand, and Freddie is going to sing ‘Who Wants To Live Forever’ as our swan song.. DJT.. What a world.. Anti-Establishment votes a lot and crass voters a lot, but for the anti-establishment surely not DJT… Surely NOT DJT…

Moving on to releases for next Friday the 18th of November and we feel Santa and the Christmas songs breathing down our necks.. Ho ho ho! The 18th really is the week when it starts a bit… Lots of releases including the new album by METALLICA ‘Hard Wired To Self Destruct’.. Up there with Bowie, Radiohead and Nick Cave as one of the biggest releases of the year..


We are going to start names on the METALLICA LP so if you are interested, drop me a mail.. The reason we are taking the names is because there is an Indies only coloured double LP exclusive… Gatefold with codes.. 30EUR.. Hence the name taking.. So if you want one, let us know..


The METALLICA release is also available as a 2CD or 3CD digipack, or as a super deluxe boxset which includes the double LP (not coloured though), an exclusive 12’’, the 12 track CD, button badges, and exclusive prints.. It will be the metallers 11th studio album, first in eight years.. Definitely one of the biggies..
