Adventurer’s Club sits and waits for something

Meanwhile, Motion is crumbling

Rock ‘N’ Roll Beach Club should be next

The back of Rock ‘N’ Roll Beach Club is slowly disappearing

There is evidence of work going on

After Banks visited Pleasure Island, he made a trip over to D Street to see what’s going on with Vinylmation. To see what’s going on at D Street, see our latest Vinylmation Station Report.
