Right, that’s flights and a room booked for Jawbox in London this June. If it’s postponed again I guess it’ll be an expensive record-shopping trip > @MacDara #tweet

My copy of the SST book arrived so that’s what’ll be keeping me occupied every night this week > @MacDara #tweet

Ordered the new one. But honestly struggling to understand why it costs nearly €140 more here than in the US. That’s a 36% markup > @MacDara #tweet
