by the way – after two business months in 2016 we simply conclude, that the major industry forces the disinterest on classic retail sale. Why ? wholesale prices for new releases again up and away. THIS MAKES NO SENSE for all participants ! we called major label Sony/BMG in munich to asked for a customer ID for simply business and the upcomin‘ Record Store Day. Verbally they told us – this makes no sense for them, because of the expectedly sales with us. We know their program, but do they know us? No – so simply fuck u !!

meanwhile we enjoy our daily job, because we love to discover
