Snow Patrol album launch gig postponed until Monday 13th January.

We have today received a message from Snow Patrol informing us that they have had to postpone their album launch gig at O2 Academy on Sunday 8th December (see statement below from the band).

The bad news is that they are not going to be able to perform at the O2 Academy on the original date. However, the good news is that they can play at the same venue on Monday 13th January and all tickets issued will be valid for the rescheduled date. It looks as though timings for the rescheduled date will be Doors 7pm and Snow Patrol on stage around 8pm.

If you are unable to attend the rearranged date on Monday 13th January you are entitled to a full refund. This will of course mean that we need to have albums and tickets returned to us before returning payments. If you need any further information regarding refunds please contact us and we will be happy to help.

This event has sold out, so we need to put a closing date on issuing refunds so that we have sufficient time to put any album + ticket bundles back on sale. So please contact us as soon as possible. The deadline for refunds is Saturday 14th December.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information. We will reply as soon as possible.

Our apologies for any disappointment this postponement might cause.

Rockford’s finest deliver all the killer cuts you want, including “I Want You To Want Me,” “Surrender,” and “Clock Strikes Ten,” plus tracks from their recently-released fourth studio album Dream Police.

CRIME – San Francisco’s First & Only Rock N’ Roll Band 2×7″+DVD 26.99
One of the most savagely cool and confrontational punk acts in history, CRIME famously dubbed themselves “San Francisco’s First And Only Rock ‘N’ Roll Band.” This inflammatory claim was supported by unpredictable live shows that often ended in riots. In 1978, film producer Larry Larson captured CRIME in their natural habitat, the dimly-lit nightclub Mabuhay Gardens. They looked and sounded more severe than anyone in San Francisco was ready for. The footage sat dormant for decades, until now! Edited and directed by Jon Bastian, the recently completed movie features archival live performances and unruly behind-the-scenes straight from the original 16mm color film. A vital document of the group —Frankie Fix, Johnny Strike, Ron The Ripper and Hank Rank—as well as North Beach’s sordid scene: parading punks, square thrill-seekers and Fab Mab promoter Dirk Dirksen’s provocative emceeing. Superior Viaduct presents this first-time release of the 35-minute movie on DVD and double 7” of its soundtrack. Feel the beat—it’s CRIME time.

EDAN – Beauty & The Beast LP £28.99
While Edan’s critically acclaimed debut, Primitive Plus, was a celebration of Hip-hop’s golden age and a true throwback, his sophomore album, Beauty And The Beat, is a vast musical collage that contains many different influences; Hip-hop, rock, pop, dusty breaks, hazy loops, luxurious off-kilter samples and curveball tempo changes that are all crafted into one cohesive piece of art.
ELVIS PRESLEY – American Sound 1969 2LP £26.99
1969 was a pivotal year for Elvis Presley. Fresh from the success of the ’68 Comeback Special, a revitalized Elvis headed to American Sound Studios with producer Chips Moman and a crack group of local session musicians. From these sessions came From Elvis In Memphis, one of the most beloved LPs of his career, plus the seminal hits “Suspicious Minds” (his 18th and final No. 1 hit) and “In The Ghetto.” American Sound Sessions 1969, available for the first time on vinyl, features rare and unreleased outtakes from these legendary sessions.

To celebrate Back To Black Friday, At The Dojo Records will be releasing Fu Manchu’s complete incendiary performance at the 2003 edition of the Roadburn Festival Netherlands on limited edition LP and CD. The band recently unearthed the original professional recordings that were taken direct from the soundboard and had them specifically mastered for this release. Scott Hill, lead vocals/guitar of Fu Manchu comments: “Playing Roadburn back in 2003 was a blast! It was the year before we put out “Start The Machine” and we played a couple of songs from it live for the first time on that tour. One of the songs that’s on this live record, “I Wanna Be,” is a different arrangement than what ended up on the final studio release. We’re stoked that the show was recorded and that people will get to hear it. Always a good time playing at Roadburn!” This is a legendary Fu set including classics “Squash That Fly,” “Hell On Wheels,” “Boogie Van” and “King Of The Road.” Tracklist: 1.Squash That Fly 2.Hell On Wheels 3.Eatin’ Dust 4.Laserbl’ast! 5.I Wanna Be 6.Boogie Van 7.King Of The Road 8.Written In Stone 9.Saturn III
