20th March 2013

hendrix

The first ever Jimi Hendrix® pop-up store is to be opened in the heart of Soho to celebrate the release of 'People, Hell and Angels'. The store will open for a limited time only from Monday 1 April – Friday 12 April 2013 at 8 Ganton Street London, just off the world famous Carnaby Street. The store will sell a limited collection of merchandise and will feature Fender® ‘Plug & Play demo stations’ in addition to hosting a Gered Mankowitz photography exhibition.

Janie L. Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix’s sister and President/CEO of Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., will make a special appearance at the store, signing copies of the new book Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book from 4–6pm on the opening evening, Monday 1 April. World renowned music photographer, Gered Mankowitz, will be making a special appearance at the store from 3–6pm on Saturday 6 April, where he will be talking about working with Jimi Hendrix, and will be available to sign prints of his work, which have been exclusively printed for the pop-up store. .

The Jimi Hendrix pop-up store will feature the new album 'People, Hell and Angels' as well as the entire Jimi Hendrix music and video catalogue (CDs, LPs, DVDs and Blu- ray releases), including a number of titles that have never been available in the UK. It will also sell authorized limited edition Jimi Hendrix merchandise, including clothing, posters, art, books, collectible items, and guitar accessories including pick tins, guitar straps, and effects pedals. There will also be some very special merchandise pieces that have been created specifically for the store itself.

*****

Providing visitors with a unique one-off experience, the basement area will be inhabited by Fender who will be running 'Plug & Play demo stations' where Jimi Hendrix fans can practice their guitar skills and attend 'Jimi Hendrix Master Classes' where they can learn to play Hendrix riffs and licks.

The store will also feature a photography exhibition, displaying pictures taken by Gered Mankowitz, the famed British rock photographer whose lens captured Jimi Hendrix on multiple occasions, and took the picture which became the cover for 'People, Hell and Angels'.

The pop-up store is a stone's throw away from many of the legendary venues synonymous with Jimi Hendrix's time in the capital including Bag O'Nails, Ronnie Scott's, Marquee Club, The Speakeasy and is in close proximity to his former central London flat on 23 Brook Street.

The pop-up store coincides with the release of 'People, Hell and Angels', an essential new album premiering twelve previously unreleased studio recordings completed by guitarist Jimi Hendrix. 'People, Hell and Angels' is available now, digitally, as part of Classic Rock Presents: Hendrix – People, Hell and Angels Collector's Pack, and as standalone physical releases on CD and LP.

'People, Hell and Angels' showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established The Experience as rock's largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums in the US Top 10 sales chart, Hendrix was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements - horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar - Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. 'People, Hell and Angels' presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician, and producer.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
