His Master’s Faggots and Pays

Along with the castle, zoo and the Robin Hood – there’ll soon be another reason to visit Dudley (should you need one). HMV are going to open a ‘concept’ store that replaces loads of the CD racks with ‘downloading kiosks’, Mac and iPod area and a juice bar.

I’m all for modern ideas and hanging out in record shops (you may be one of the many people I’ve bored over the years with my bar-cum-venue-cum-record shop idea, last seen as an idea for putting in Drift in Moseley), but I’m not sure a chain will be the place to do that. Still interesting it will be.
