A tentative step and an exciting debut by David Keenan

Hi everyone,

Hope all is well and that christmas was safe and peaceful…welcome to the roaring 20s !?!

Well, back on the horse, tentatively…like the rest of ye, tentatively also no doubt.

Im back a week earlier than normal with the newsletter as i suppose i gotta keep reminding ye folks of us …but it will be short and sweet…you know that whole tentative thing.

Right so opening hours… and these will be more or less consistent for the foreseeable future.

Friday 3rd jan 10 to 6

Saturday 4th jan 10 to 5

Sunday 5th of Jan closed

Monday 6th of jan closed

Tuesday 7th of Jan 10.30 to 6

Wednesday 8th of Jan  2 to 6

Thursday 9th of jan 10 to 6

Friday 10th of jan 10 to 6

Saturday 11th of jan 10 to 5.

The shop will be closed on Sunday and Mondays and  open 2 to 6 on Wednesdays.

Explain yourself Raymond you lazy sod…

Well…Sunday is with the smallies and ideally zero shop work will be done …so yes lazy sod day.

I have decided to do my orders from home on Mondays to help me get a good start to the week…get a bit ahead of myself…so that newsletters arent been sent out on saturday nights at midnight!! Ease my workload a little …so that’s the craic with Mondays…i hope ye understand.

Weds has always been wholesaling day for me for over 10 years now …to cut a long story short…i sell kids dvds and a few cds on floor spinners in a few shops around the county ( i do it on a weds only) ..i started it in 2009 when things were really starting to go shite and it probably helped keep us open in 10, 11 and 12 before things started to settle…its less and less now but I still need to get out for 3 or 4 hours every weds so that’s the craic with weds …i’m not polishing my yachts!

So i hope that’s cool…if anyone wants me to hang around on a friday evening, thats cool also just give me an auld email and we can sort it out.

Tis a bit different now, i hope you can understand.

 

Right so, first point of major note is the albums of 2019 reminder …come on folks get them over to us…the top 5 albums of 2019, also top 5 Irish albums of 2019 and if you want top 5 gigs of 2019 …50 euro voucher for the siopa for one participant …if you only want to send your top 5 full stop that’s cool… we would like as good a reflection as possible of the taste of our dear patrons so top 5s please folks …thanks to those who have already.

Right so before we dive into short term releases and mise repeating myself from the last newsletter…there are new albums on the near horizons from DRIVE BY TRUCKERSTAME IMPALA, JONATHAN WILSON, GERRY CINNAMON, WIRE, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, GREEN DAY, PET SHOP BOYS , GREG DULLI ( AFGHAN WHIGS) and ISOBEL CAMPELL to name a few so hopefully it  will be an OK start to the year in the current abode…unit 4 deanrock business park …nb nb nb use Deanrock cottages on google maps or sat navs etc and you will be right outside the business park where we are …Deanrock cottages folks…then we are right next door to Rock Bingo …obviously the next few months could be scary so if you need anything, try to think of us…sound out.

Right so .releases for the 10th of Jan …the biggie i suppose is the DAVID KEENAN album “ a beginners guide to bravery” on CD or LP , there are some TOWNES VAN ZANDT vinyl reissues of “ our mother the mountain” and self titled album.
