Road Records might be staying open

March 20, 2009

Good piece of news number 1 – it seems Road might be staying open after all. There’s been a big effort in the local scene to raise a kind of retirement fund for them (kinda like the end of “It’s a wonderful life”), and now they’re considering staying open. From their website:

We regarded our decision in January as final having spent a long time trying to find a way out of our situation to no avail. Soon after announcing our closure a number of ideas were thrown at us by different people and we started to think that maybe there was a way that we could carry on.

We have set ourselves certain targets and have agreed that if we manage to hit every single one of them then we will carry on with the shop. Last Saturday night (benefit gig) was the fulfilment of a major target!

Fingers crossed they’ll meet their other targets too. The maddest thing about the benefit gig is that it was organised by the manager of Tower Records, fair play to him
