subterranean distribution

postbus 15132
1001MC amsterdam
Last Updated: index.html 17 juli

well, that's it people...the monkeys have gone home to roost--we is closed.  see below for original brief goodbye....


 there's no easy way to say this, so we'll just say it: subterranean is closing its retail outlet on the jodenbreestraat on 17 juli in order to focus on its distribution business (also here in amsterdam). it's been a hard decision to make, but financial and personal concerns finally outweighed amsterdam's need for an alternative CD shop...we hope you'll eventually forgive us.

thanks to everyone who told someone else about us, or bought more CDs than they should have, or told us that we were doing something valuable--it made a huge difference to us, and helped us keep going for as long as we did.

ok, if we say any more we'll get all teary-eyed, so we'll just say:  see you at the next show!
