Being at uni most of the time and turntables are back home Redeye is ideal, I can reserve records 1/2 at a time then have them all sent out when I know I'm going home.

Still a shame Chemical looks to be in the shit again, considering most vinyls are now limited too much and some sell out before they're even released its good to have many options so if it sells out in one you can look elsewhere for it.

Glad the Author made it out as well.

So I sent an email 2 days ago to try and find out what's going on with my order. Still no reply from them, I'm guessing theyv'e essentially just robbed me of my money.

Really fucking pissed off with this, can't believe they haven't even put out a message to say explain what's going on!

Music & Lifestyle Ltd, which traded as Chemical Records from St Vincents Trading Estate, Bristol has gone into Administration. The company, which sold music related equipment and clothing, was bought out of Administration last summer by the existing management, but failed to reach its expected sales targets.

David Tann and John Kirkpatrick from the Reading office of accountants Wilkins Kennedy LLP were appointed Administrators on Wednesday 26 March 2014.

David Tann said,'We were appointed at short notice and had very little time to try and find a way forward for the business. Whilst we have spoken to a number of parties there appears to be little appetite from anyone to take on the whole business. As a result we had to take the difficult decision to close the doorscompletely and make all 19 staff redundant.'

The Administrators are currently considering offers for the assets of the company.

If you go into your bank you can issue a chargeback notice and get your money back.

That's what I did when Bloc went into administration

I believe that they still have hope of someone assume or buy the shop, no?

know you some stores that sell DJ equipment or accessories/clothes with the same price?
