I went to virgin (camden) today and asked if they had the single in stock

*lady looks on computer* "yes we have 8 copies left"

"excellent, I couldn't seem to find it, I could only find the vinyl could you possibly find it for me?"

"sure!"

*lady goes to look, then returns*

"hmmm I can't seem to find it sorry"

"what!?!?!? you said you had 8"

*at this point the manager over hears and says*

"Go downstairsx and ask tom where they are"

*I wait*

*She comes back with a huge grin, I think 'oh great'*

"sorry we have lost the copies we have"


Hmmm maybe I should complain.

I thought the chart rules capped prices now? Virgin were properly in the wrong if they did that.

the shops can charge what they want (up to the chart company's limit assuming there is one)..

the email said it'd be 99p... it probably is at all the indie stores in the country.. the difference is, virgin will be making over 1.50 on every copy.. nice for them, eh?

If you were in a band, and you'd just released a single, with a chance for it to enter the Top 40, would you email everyone on your mailing list, or jsut think to yourself 'nah, whats the point, we'll never hit the big time'

Yeah, because just e-mailing everyone once is equivalent to giving up. Rolling Eyes
