    I was recently in Dublin and paid a visit to an old haunt of mine - Asha only to find absolutely fvck all band tees and hoodies and a bollox-load of bongs, pipes etc. That place used be THE place to go for merch but not any more sadly :(

    I mainly have Rammstein merch so buy from their online shop. I'm a member of LIFAD so I get a nice discount on everything but for anything else I use emp.de.

    Online is the way to go these days. Very rare for bricks and mortar stores to sell anything alternative.

    Yep, Asha died a slow death over the last 10 years or so.

    Some Amazon sellers are good, but for online I like EMP. Decent delivery, regular offers and a good range. German shop I believe.

    The last merch I bought was at Gary Numan's gig in the Olympia.

    There's a lot to be said for going into a shop and trying stuff on to make sure it fits. I've had to return stuff to the likes of RammsteinShop because the large was way too big. Costs around €15 to return stuff each time and you have to pay for the replacement to be shipped. They have taken steps to rememdy this by not using the likes of Fruit of the Loom. All their t-shirts are branded "RAMMSTEINSHOP" so if you bought a medium of 1 t-shirt and a few months later a medium of a different t-shirt you can be guaranteed the same fit.

    I was wondering why I recently saw a teeny-bopper going around in a Metallica t-shirt :D

    A girl at work came in proudly wearing a Misfits shirt she got in Penneys saying she was just like us now. We showed her the lyrics to Skulls and Last Caress and we never saw her wear it again :D
