The newsletter has been mailed to subscribers on Sunday 5th April 2020 with 460 new items listed including: a large number of Skinny Puppy and related albums, many Damned items, predominantly 7″ singles, some noise artists like Bong and Skullflower, a selection of anarcho-punk singles, some rare Motley Crue posters, a diverse selection of cassettes, Sex Pistols reproduction posters – some of which are quite nice!, more Death Metal albums including rare editions by Marduk, Craft, Gorgoroth, Horna and Immortal, plus of course the usual broad selection of punk, indie and quite a lot of cheaply priced items.
Despite the problems caused by the Corona virus (Covid – 19) we are continuing to mail on a daily basis. Unsurprisngly there is disruption caused to the postal system, some countries seem very badly affectted, especially Canada who seem to be quaranting foreign mail even though there’s no evidence the virus can survive on card for more than a short time. The main difference seems to be that there’s fewer flights so the territories that rely on air mail are suffering small backlogs. In Europe the parcels are going via road rather than air, so typically taking a few days longer. In the UK it seems to be as regular sevice as usual, noticed no increased delivery times.
Royal mail have published a handy link which lists all countries in which there are delivery delays and explains more about them, so if you’re wondering if you’ll be affected, you can find out here: https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/5317/~/international-incident-bulletin As long as a territory isn’t listed as ‘On Suspension’ we will continue to mail.
The web site will be updated on the morning of Wednesday 8th April, at which point all unsold stock remaining from the newsletter will appear on the site.
