A Great Cause…

The weekend of the 20/21 October this year will see a gathering of heads from all over Australia to celebrate the life of a great mate to many who passed last year. The weekend consists of a show on the eve of the 20th and an Australian Rules Footy match on the Sunday 21st. The match to be played in Melbourne at Glenferrie Oval is an Eastcoast vs Westcoast scenario with MC’s, DJ’s & Producers from all over joining up to battle for not only braggin rites but the inaugural Robert Hunter Cup named after our friend who sadly passed.
Not only will I have the privilege to represent on the weekend for the Eastside Kings come game day, but also the incredible honour of leading the squad out.

Its a free event, all we ask is you please give to one of the can rattlers on the day as we are raising funds for the make a wish foundation. If your unable to attend the match and donate, you have a great chance to do so here- http://www.everydayhero.com.au/EastsideKings you can nominate to give to the charity under a players name or the team and event as a whole, either way, its greatly appreciated and an awesome cause.

RIP Huntz


…Get Set…

At long last the double vinyl gatefold of FTTOHNL will find itself on store shelves tomorrow. With online pre-orders disappearing in under 2 minutes, please be sure to hit up your nearest stockist quick sticks to snap up a copy. Remember there’s only a small quantity and high demand, limits will apply.

Below is a run down of those selected stores with handfuls of the LP, some will also have a small amount of cassette tapes available too, so if you missed the pre, this is your 2nd and last chance to score one for the Boomy…

Wax Museum (Melb)
Obese (Melb)
This Is It (Melb)
Northside Records (Melb)
Clinic 116 (ADL)
Wax Department (ADL)
Cold Krush (ADL)
Rocking Horse records (QLD)
567 (Syd)
Landspeed (Canb)

Each store has their own individual approach to the release, some took names and pre-holds, others are nominating to throw them on the shelf. I know unfortunately some heads will miss an opportunity to grab one, but thats the nature of limited pressings. 

I’ll be stopping through Wax Museum Records at 6PM tomorrow night (which is the time they are putting their allocation of wax out to purchase), so if you manage to score a copy from there or any other outlets including online, drop past with it and Ill gladly slap a sig on there, if you actually wanna crack it out the plastic!

Thanks as always for the support you have shown myself & the release.

 


Tape Pre-Orders Ship…


All tape pre-orders taken through Unkut Recordings have at last shipped, leaving HQ yesterday and today the 18th Sept. Unfortunately due to the inundation and heavy workload with wax and tape issues we had no option but to move the ship date back a week. Please excuse the hold up, rest assured, they are all on their way to your doors now tho!
To those who missed the limited prees, please hit up one of the selected stores this Friday to grab one, again stocks are super limited but there will be a handful of each hitting those shops.


Feeding Frenzy…


So apparently FTTOHNL managed to break the internets again last night, (think thats the third time something related to this release has caused programs / sites to crash!) and once re-connectivity was established soul claps pre-orders were completely sold within 1 and a half minutes! Madness! Well done to all who managed to snare a piece and to those who unfortunately missed out, hopefully you get a slice of the action from one of the outlets limited supplies!
I am told a couple have already pre-sold their allocations, so things are getting tight, but at the same time other stores are choosing to wait and throw them on shelf come release date, so please be aware there are some options out there!
Again to those who desperately attempted to grab theirs via pre-order but lucked out, please respect the fact this release was super limited in numbers and Soul Clap put a restriction of maximum 2 per order. Im told their site maxed out prior to the orders even going live, and kick off started a little later once they managed to restore that shit. It seems the most patient punters must’ve come away with the goods.
Thankyou all again for your unending support, bring on the 21st!

Wax Related Public Service Announcement…

Unfortunately it’s come to this… In the last week to 24 hours every portal direct to me including messaging, emailing, and all forms of social media have been blown the fuck up with requests to hold, put aside send invoices or paypal deets to directly cop FTTOHNL on Wax. For the record, due to its limited nature, the entire quantity of FTTOHNL  vinyl manufactured has been allocated, to the letter, to be distributed. All participating stores including online, have been allocated exact amounts, as have promos. 

I personally am not handling any of the quantity to be sold, so with all due respect to all those fans, friends and supporters, your only means of grabbing this is through the stockists previously mentioned. 

Sincerely

T


2 X LP GATEFOLD PREES GO LIVE 9PM TONIGHT!!!

After what seems like an eternity, pre-orders for the 2xLP Gatefold of FTTOHNL finally go live tonight the 10th September! www.soulclaprecords.com will be kicking off orders from 9PM sharp. With news already filtering through that some stores have already pre-sold their allocations prior to the drop date, this may be the last port of call for some of you. They’re not expected to last long, days, hours or maybe even minutes if the tape prees are any guide. So be sure to set alarms and timers to be at the ready by 9PM. Remember this release IS strictly limited, once its gone, its gone.
Best of luck!
