Following hot on the heels of the sell out in Copenhagen, we have now decided to put on an event in Oslo for you Norwegians! Last October, as part of the ‘Selected Events’ tour, Recoil appeared at the ElektroStat festival – Norway’s largest festival dedicated to underground electronic music. We had such a great time and so, this year, the film of that same Recoil show – ‘A STRANGE HOUR IN BUDAPEST’ – will be screened in Oslo on Saturday November 3rd at Cinemateket.
These presentations accompany Recoil’s Blu-ray release of the full concert film, directed by Attila Herkó.
This Oslo event is being produced in conjunction with Scandinavian music and home theatre electronics chain Hi-Fi Klubben, (Look out for an exclusive competition from them which includes free tickets)
As usual, Alan Wilder will be in attendance to host a Q&A session & discussion about the ‘Selected Events’ tour and film project. There will be an Afterparty with Bar & DJs, and for sale at the cinemas, we have a very limited amount of deluxe tour editions of the Blu-ray up for grabs!  These are unnumbered but otherwise virtually identical to the editions which completely sold out within the first few days of the pre-order back in June.  In addition they can all be individually signed by Alan. See www.store.recoil.co.uk for full product details.
The Cinemateket – which recently featured special nights with David Lynch & Diamanda Galás – is located at the Filmens Hus in Oslo. Screening approximately 500 different titles per year, spanning from silent films to contemporary art-house titles, the cinema programmes both large retrospectives and series, in addition to regular concepts like ‘Troll i eske’ (surprise premiere) and ‘The Dream That Kicks’ (avant garde films) etc. The Cinemateket also hosts the annual documentary film festival EURODOK and the 70mm festival, and acts as venue during Films from the South festival, Oslo Gay and Lesbian Film Festival & Oslo International Film Festival. With two screening rooms, ‘Lillebil’ & ‘Tancred’, this popular venue offers the unique possibility of screening both analogue and digital film (4K).

This item has now completely sold out and, at this time, will not be re-stocked.  We had intended to produce more but now that the contents of the stick are in the public domain, predictably enough, the inevitable copying and sharing of files via illegal sites has begun. This is what every artist has to contend with these days.  We urge every music fan to stop for a moment and just think each time you share a music file which has not been purchased through official channels.
