Thank you to those who have pre-ordered the Slaves “Acts Of Fear And Love” album with us. We now have further details which we would please ask you to read very carefully.
The album is released on Friday 17th August and can be collected from the shop any time from 9:30am on that day. We will also be open from 9:30am until 6pm on Saturday.
The customer who made the purchase must come in to the shop on either of those days to collect their album(s) and wristband(s) for the event at Headrow House on Saturday 18th August. You will NOT be able to gain access to the venue without a wristband.
Doors for the album launch gig at Headrow House are at 8pm with the band on stage at 9pm. As previously advised this is an 18+ event. There will be no admittance to anyone who is under 18. Please contact us immediately if this will be an issue for you.
We have also just had it confirmed that Slaves will be signing albums in the shop from 6pm on Saturday 18th August and everyone is welcome to attend. Please note the band will ONLY be signing copies of their new album. We will be setting up a queue for this and will be allowing customers in to the shop on a first come first in basis. Please make sure you have already collected your album and wristband before you join the queue for the signing. If you are on this event page but haven’t ordered an album plus wristband you will be able to buy an album in the shop and join the queue to get it signed.
That should cover everything you need to know. We look forward to seeing you at the weekend.

We will be issuing wristbands to all customers who pre-order the album with us and they will be guaranteed entry to the album launch gig and allowed in to the venue first. Any remaining space will then be filled up on a first come first served basis once all the customers with wristbands have gone in.

One album purchase gets one wristband. Two albums on any format gets two wristbands. There is no collect at venue option. Please make sure you call in to the shop first for your album and wristband.

Two classic Japan albums; “Gentlemen Take Polaroids” and “Tin Drum” are being reissued on Friday 24th August as special Half Speed Mastered editions.
They have been mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road studios and both records have been cut using a specialist technique known as half-speed mastering.
This artisan process results in cuts that have superior high frequency response (treble) and solid and stable stereo images. In short, a very high quality master that helps to create a very high quality record.
In addition to this, both albums will be released as very limited edition double 45 rpm half-speed mastered edition. This is the ultimate for high quality reproduction as the faster the replay speed of the record, the higher the potential quality. Also, the shorter side times allow the level recorded to the master lacquer discs to be increased thereby improving the signal to noise ratio.
We expect to sell out of the double album 45 rpm editions and would advise pre-ordering if you don’t want to miss out. Follow this link for “Gentlemen Take Polaroids” and here for “Tin Drum”
