Road Records of Fade Street, Dublin, will close down in the coming weeks after over 8 years in operation.

Specialising in independent releases, and the kind of music not readily available in other stores, Road was a much-loved fixture in the Dublin music scene.

Speaking to hotpress.com, Road Records' Dave Kennedy said he thinks the shop's closing will have a negative effect on independent bands. "I do think [the Dublin music scene] is going to suffer, and I'm not just blowing my own trumpet."
heh heh

whose trumpet is he blowing so?

Of course I have, when you use a phrase like that you leave yourself open to silly comments.

Yes, you're right, it was a silly comment (I'm sorry, I couldn't resist that )
