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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!

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.
It's no secret that, here at RwdFwd HQ, we are very excited about things to come from Spiritflesh... Some of you may have already wrapped your ears around their music via that short run of promotional tapes we had for sale here some weeks ago...
Everyone else, please have a listen and a read below.
Words taken straight from the recent Tape-Echo article:
"Following the eluding inclusion of very first Spiritflesh material in the ‘5 Years Of NoCorner Music’ compilation unleashed late last year, what has followed are many months of speculation & rumours, handfuls of upfront promo tapes, cryptic blends in mixes from some of our favourite selectors, and glimpses of influences and unreleased Spiritflesh material via a dedicated - and highly recommended - NTS special on DJ October’s Sacred Pools show.
With a 12” single now out, and a full-length LP coming out later this year, the cat is now truly beginning to scratch it’s way out of the bag, ready to unveil one of the most exciting projects to come out of Bristol in some time.
The brainchild of Julian ‘Dj October’ Raymond-Smith and Boris ‘Borai’ English, their latest project is the culmination of many years of production experience and expansive discography, countless hours of music consumption and collective knowledge.
Taking in a host of influences, from Doom Metal and Drone through to Post-Punk, EBM, Dreader than dread Dub and Techno, Spiritflesh have truly blurred the conventions of their influences and spawned a sound that is all theirs, a sound that spews and spits like a skeletal, fog-riddled construct of otherwordly ambience, guttural bassline and rhythm.
Their sound is an utterly heavy cerebral kind of music that touches, with great conviction, on ideas of life, death and the in-between.
Adding to the depth of their sonic, Jules and Boris have called on their old friend Mat ‘the wizard’ Sampson, who is also the engineer and recording artist of choice for the likes of Roly Porter, Emptyset, Anthroproph, and of course DJ October.
Mat has spent decades amassing and building countless electronic rarities, from analogue compressors through to tube amps, BBC-grade spring & plate reverbs, classic tape-delays, russian-import fx pedals - you name it.
The end-result is a truly immersive sonic, an incredibly heavy sound even during the most sparse and stripped back moments…
Spiritflesh have, already with this first record, mastered a visceral, time-stretched construct of tremendous tension, pressure, and release.
Presenting a first view into the world of Spiritflesh, for the artwork Studio Tape-Echo have drawn from a series of British Archive illustrations by Andreas Visalius, who, in the 15th century, was one of the first to study human anatomy in order to obtain information about possible infinite life.
A lot of his subjects were recently hung convicts, obtained by permission from the judge, who would schedule executions accordingly.
Edition of 250.
Pressed on translucent blood red vinyl.
housed in a polythene sleeve, with oversized sticker.
Mixed and produced with Mat Sampson, at Bink Bonk Studios Bristol.
