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!
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.
These new laws are being passed to further reduce the rights of UK citizens to protest, congregate (that includes untaxed, autonomous music events also), and even freely communicate (linked to self-organisation and vocal protest incitement), to an alarming shred.
Even rough sleeping, i.e. the homeless could be feeling the impact of these new laws.
It is simply an(other) utterly alarming, disgusting, in-humane call from the UK government, adding to its history of shocking behaviour and crushing action against a fair society.

- What Is Kill The Bill?
If you're not from the UK, you may have heard only heard the news about the Kill The Bill protest in Bristol, or London. Most likely, you were pointed towards the riotous behaviour and panic-fuelled action that happened, with 'some police officers injured' (let's not forget the violence from the police themselves here) or other 'anti-social behaviour', or perhaps it was pointed out that the spread of the covid virus could've been pushed further due to youths congregating on the street again.
Protesting has been a crucial vehicle for positive change in this world for centuries now.
This new bill makes it far easier for Police & government to, amongst other diminished rights for citizens and prosecuting powers for the police, to incriminate activism and 'protest behaviour' under the extremely loose pre-tense of 'inciting violence' or even 'causing public annoyance'. Their new powers stretch as far as incriminating 'social media communications' which may have lead to a protest happening, or led to 'violence'. One of the big problems here, is the flexibility in the phrasing (which many politicians use to their benefit in media statements, in favour of leaving out the wider implications of their intentions) and the prosecutive powers of this new Bill. The new amendments to the crime, sentencing and courts bill can easily be stretched in favour of the prosecutor, and they compromise on basic human rights extremely deeply at this point.
once again - it's very important to remember, that most protests start peacefully, often only escalating into violence once police pressure is applied -
And the right to protest is far more important than the penalising power against individuals who cause damage during the process of protest.
Humans act differently, often in more extreme ways, when in large groups by nature (once again - search Freud's 'Crowd Psychology' or 'Mob Psychology' theories for valid research on Crowd Behaviour ).
With this in mind, and above all, the right to speak out and protest needs to be protected, not attacked.
'But, this is just a tape with music on it...' you say.
You're not wrong there, but it's the message that counts here, and the signs of community, and combined anger against further state repression. Fuck your memorials of colonial ancestry, fuck your nationalistic sense of 'security'. fuck all that.
Positive action leads to reaction. At least we'd like to think so, but what else can we do, apart from our bit?
