Isn't this just either a stroke of genius or a way of driving a once renowned name into the ground?
and i will do my best to support it whenever i go to london. i want reports on here from ppl tomorrow!
hmm maybe i should go on saturday morning before funbus...
it's on the same side of town.
but way too pokey and i dislike spending any real amount of time in there.
I'm looking forward to this.
it was beginning to have really take the piss prices in there thought, especially vinyl - still it will be sad when it closes. I got a fantastic Serge Gainsbourg album on vinyl in there. Wonderful.
Oh and a skateboard as well, natch.
Best thing you've ever written, and the reason you shouldn't waste time with silly characters. You funny little man you.
while it wasn't cheap cheap, i don't think the prices were too bad - i got a 10lec6 album that i'd never even seen anywhere else for £9.99.
vinyl's expensive everywhere these days, surely?
It'll be nice having a Rough Trade shop that can fit more than 10 people in at once.
i thought it was 'commodified', but my spell-checker suggests 'commoditised' instead.
I've been argy-frying for something like you have on Outlook so people like me don't make silly spelling mistakes.
the spell checker on outlook :)
any Potter spoilers?
still going to be queuing up at Woolies on a Monday morning for the new releases.
looks like john simm.
i'll definitely go in and have a look at this. will be sad to see the old place go, as i very much like tiny little stores and will miss the signed ceiling. it sounds like they've got lots of great ideas for the new place, i just hope it picks up the attention and trade it'll need to survive.
probably not seeing its so small, but that point about 'empty shops' in covent garden means that all the independent shops are being crushed by the big companies which means that pretty soon Covent Garden will look like an outdoor Bluewater.
apparently the rents are so stupidly high that this new massive shop isn't actually that much of an extra spend...
i always wondered - are they part of the same company or entirely separate? will someone else rent the basement or will the whole property be up for grabs?
taking the ceiling with them.
the old site can become an indoor trampolining court.
+10 points to anyone who gets that reference.
expecting a box full of Euro notes?
Now I can get to a record store by going only two stops on the tube.
in terms of diversity of stock.
there's a lot of good specialist stores for electronic music and reggae and the like, but nowhere apart from rough trade actually stocks hard-to-find rock records. problem is, they seem to treat the stock like shit AND overcharge for it.
i'd guess this shop will be better than the west london one and the covent garden one combined, but if they still sell records in tatty covers for £4 more than the internet does i probably won't buy much.
are there any other record shops in this city that can compete? sister ray is pretty shite overall.
i hear that.
i bought earth 2 a year or so ago, and they gave me two copies, because there was another cd knocking around without a case. deary me.
I've heard all the plans for it. It better be awesome, to make up for the fact they didn't give me the job of running it. :'(
according to Facebook Im head of media at the BBC. Who shall I sack first?
um, Ainsley Harriet?
nice work, though sad you didn't get it obv.!
Can't I get rid of Griff Rys Jones first? I saw him on telly last night and realised he has the voice of geeky shoe.
he interviewed me.
did they not have any other jobs to hand?
i would eat my own poo to work for rough trade.
They're not what they used to be. Maybe in 1982 but now? Sack that.
but i work with people like this
separate to Rough Trade.
