We are about to enter into Q4 which back in the day was a beast in the industry… I remember my first christmas in GD on Panna it was a long thin shop as some of ye will remember (stocking mainly CDs, Cassettes and Video Tape.. Circa 93/94) and no kidding the queue was the length of the shop for most of the day… A baptism of fire… Had Christmases similar to that in Music Zone back in 04 / 05 times… Different beast and model now… Steady stream is good now Christmas week but the releases are still top-loaded to Q4 and look thats a good thing… September seems to have quite a few bits and pieces which should tip away for us… Also good.
Right so the 14th of SEPT has the new PAUL WELLER album “True Meanings” on CD, DELUXE CD, and 2LP. Sounding good.
CD – Housed in a ‘soft-pack’ gatefold card wallet with 12-page booklet
Deluxe CD – Limited, deluxe edition CD in a casebound book package, including a 28-page booklet of photos and lyrics
Vinyl LP – Double heavyweight black vinyl LP, housed in a gatefold ‘tip-on’ sleeve, with 8-page booklet fixed inside the sleeve, plus a download card. The tip-on sleeve is limited to initial orders only
The LP above is fairly tight but we can do 30EUR best price job on pre-orders.. If interested lets us know please, we would obviously be delighted.
Ripleys or not but we do try and secure the best prices possible and pass them over to ye folks. The modfathers 14th solo album now… Fairly stripped back affair I believe but received lots of good reviews.

That boy HOZIER released a few tunes tonight 7.30 Irish time (Thursday one finger tapping.. moving slowly towards two finger tapping… Well one and a half) and there will be a physical Vinyl EP release of said 4 brand new songs in November… The trick is… ‘Tis a one order only job….

Oh man, today was one of those days… Long… And small things not exactly going to plan… Couldn’t find a record from an overnight online order… Robbed?? Glitch on site??… Will sort…. And spent another hour trying to find a separate one which I did manage to locate…. Sorted…. Pulls two hours from your day just searching… Couldn’t find a CD in the drawer for someone… Embarrassing and ultimately unprofessional…… Will sort… Second one this week….. It’s now 23.47… Alarm went off and goes off again at 7.15.
And what happened to poor auld Bonovox?? Some rumours say he was with Noely G in the South of France for a week before the Berlin gig.. Some other rumours tell that Noely G says he’s the wildest rockstar of them all.. Just saying is all, they’re the rumours..
MacPhisto called him a ‘wimp’ in Cologne.. On a serious note though.. Would you not have thought that the 3 other members of the band would have played a couple of songs for the crowd.. Surely they would have found someone to sing.. The Edge?? The Crowd?? I’m sure they all know the words.. Even half an hour.. And then give them the return gig when Bono’s Vox is back to normal.. Just saying is all..
Sin e for this week,
Go raibh maith agat do chluas a thabhairt,
