Bunker Vinyl record shop + studio to open in Cork this Saturday

Mike McGrath-Bryan

Independent music continues to grow in Cork, with a fifth indie record shop opening its doors in Cork city. Bunker Vinyl, opened by Dungarvan man John Dwyer (techno producer Bipolarbeats) is based in the former Quarter basement space on Camden Quay, next door to the former Camden Palace Hotel arts centre.

Expanding its reach past the traditional vinyl-peddler operation, Dwyer has teamed with local musician and tutor Aileen Wallace (Lowli, The Racklers) to provide lessons in various instruments and studio technology, made possible with the presence of the shop’s in-house tuition & production space. Masterclasses with various local musicians and producers are in the works, with announcements due soon.

The shop opens this Saturday, with a full complement of new and used wax, including over a thousand secondhand 7″s.
