Seen a post on Facebook saying they'll be having a closing down sale soon. Shame to hear that, it was a great store, some of the gigs in there were excellent and I always thought the prices were very competitive.

I have to admit since the store closed I haven't really hit the website up, I've kind of forgotten about it.

That's awful news. Gone are the days where you could kill an hour or two browsing the record shops.

Seen it there on FB myself. Sign o' the times, sadly, but a fucking great spot in its day.

we're between two bigger record buying generations in gen-z and the babyboomers. Our cultural economy is always going to be much harder fought than that of people younger and older who spend fortunes on Beatles rereleases etc

Where is the shop? Often meant to call in when I was in Dublin but I could never find it.

Lol, guess I could've been clearer in my original post that the label/online presence has followed suit.

So I've heard. Met a neighbour where I live who stopped me to tell me he'd seen me on that. I said that it's a bit old at this point as that particular shop was long gone, let alone the one we had in Temple Bar.

I'm not sure DCTV still exists either to be fair.

No I get that. Tbh I was in too minds about the shop at the time as I'd given up on metal for a while back then, but nowadays I buy a few cds a month in tower records which I'd happily spend at a local metal shop if one now existed...

The Sound Cellar still exists, to be fair.

Given Dublin's insane rental costs, having a record shop dedicated to metal again would be practically impossible. The original ITV on Whitefriar Place was a great experience. Such a fun time in there.

Yeah I've always had a love/irritation relationship with SC. Spent a fortune there as a younger man, but more inclined to go to tower nowadays for lower prices and you can get a boxset or whatever too.

As a comparison RAGE is doing quite well, so if you have the scale of market of millennial and gen y video game culture it's possible to prosper but I doubt we'll ever see that demographic weight behind a niche music form again, after say the grunge thing
