Jeez 25$ for a 12" is pretty steep. Was that recently?

I try to keep standard 12"s at 18$ but there's no way I can compete with those online vending machines doing them for $16.50, In fact I can't really compete with them on range, price, or upfront release dates. And sometimes they'll buy an entire pressing, leaving none left for anyone else. So fucked.

Australia is an expensive place to do business. Import duty, GST, and inner-city rents killers. But the laughs and the characters make it all worth while
