How to use the reserve function
If you'd like to purchase items from our site but want to save money on shipping costs, you can use our reserve function to combine your orders over an unlimited period of time, and ship them together for one combined shipping price when you are ready.Just hit the 'reserve' button at the checkout page as your shipping option when you've finished making your order, and your order will automatically be held in reserve here until you are ready for us to ship everything to you.
You can keep as many orders in reserve with us via our site as you like, until you are ready to ship. Just send us an email when you are ready to ship your reserve orders, and we will get in touch with the combined shipping price, or ship for free if you have exceeded the minimum order amount for free shipping to your address.
Can the reserve function be used to get free shipping? Yes - If your combined order total is more than £50 within the UK, over £150 within the EU, or over £225 worldwide, we'll ship your order to you via courier service, for free.
Here's a step by step guide to using it:
1. Click on the account icon to log into your account.
If you don't have an account, please click 'create account' to make one. If you had an account on the old RWDFWD site, please create a new one with the same email address used on the old site - this will ensure your previous orders are brought through to your new account.
2. Add records to your cart as normal.
3. When you're ready to check out, select 'ship'.
4. Then select 'Reserve items' on the shipping method list, then continue to payment.
5. Once payment is complete, your order will show in your account as 'unfulfilled'. We will have put all the products aside in reserve for you to combine with other orders and ship later in bulk.
6. When you're ready to ship all the items you have in reserve, email us on email@example.com and we will calculate the shipping due and arrange for payment to be taken.
7. Sit tight and wait for your records to arrive in the post!
We offer free shipping on orders over a certain value
UK orders over £50
EU orders over £150
Worldwide over £225
This is automatically applied at checkout and reserve orders also count towards it.
EU Order info
Unfortunately, the UK is no longer part of the EU - This means that certain shipments sent to addresses there from us may be subject to tax and / or import duty - All orders sent from RWDWD are sent ‘DDU’ - That is, duty unpaid - any import tax and/or duty is the sole responsibility of the buyer.
If you would like to use our reserve function to group several orders into one large shipment, we can arrange for it to be sent tax and duty pre-paid so you don’t have to worry about it at a later date - Contact us for more information.
A few months ago, through one of those 'it's a small world' instances where one friend's tale leads to a new connection being made - we got word from the guys at FALK (Fuck Art Let's Kill) in Iceland.
They presented us with this special little something that they salvaged from a trip to Glasgow, making links with 'Okishima Island Tourist Association' after they got blown away with a 'stunner of a live show'.
'Penance Room Seance' features two extended recordings from the Glaswegian noise legends, totalling in at about 39 mins across two sides of cassette.
Like one of those extended TNT fuse-burning scenes from a good Western, but in timestretched mode, Penance Room sizzles and fizzes across a stretched out ambience of blue frequency and distant dread... 15mins of unassuming drone engulf the brain like a potent dose of downers, firmly gripping the mind and body, until we find ourselves in the midst of a whirlwind of hospital bleeps and all consuming white noise.
It's a truly gripping slo-mo tornado of dread, right up until the last crucial seconds.
Flip the tape for 'Seance' and it's shimmering contrast of voice, chimes and looping, insomniac jazz.
The kind of music that will make you stop what you're doing, and just stare at the wall with equal amounts of contempt and confusion, this is really engulfing stuff, masterfully executed drone music of the highest order -
The clips won't do it justice, listen in full!
..listen again, and again, and again.
Comes with DL code.
39min run time.
