We’ve got lots of History with the Bull & Gate, in Kentish Town. Until December 1988, the band were still functioning as a 4 piece, with Iain still just a fan in the audience. There were gigs in a few venues in London, but nothing was really happening. Then, four became five (at the suggestion of Andy Ross from Food) and we got an offer to play on the bottom of the bill at the Bull & Gate. It quickly became a second home for us, as we played there again and again. It was the venue that launched our career, found us an audience, and made us into the band we still are, to this day. So, when we heard it was being closed (and turned into a gastropub) we were desperate to play there one final time.
May 2nd 2013 will be the last JJ gig at the Bull & Gate, but to make it even more special, we decided to play “Liquidizer”, in full, for the first time ever.
Once we’d got all that sorted, we suddenly thought: “why not film it, and catch the moment for posterity?”
So, we’re really pleased to announce the DVD of our upcoming show at the Bull & Gate, and to let you know that we’re starting to take orders for it here on the site – the only place you will find it for sale.
We aim to ship all of your orders approximately three weeks after the show – the DVD has to be edited, and then manufactured. If the process is any later (or, any earlier!) you’ll be the first to know.
We’re going to sell the DVD on its own, or as part of a VIP package. Here’s what you get!
h2. Option 1. Jesus Jones – Liquidizer live @ The Bull & Gate DVD.
Full DVD of the entire show, plus exclusive extras. Shot in HD, the DVD will be region-free, and playable wherever you are in the world. Additionally, the DVD will be FULLY SIGNED, by all of us. The option to get the signed DVD will only be available on pre-sale. If you want a signed copy – get one now! All copies of the DVD will additionally come with a download code to get a digital audio file of the entire gig.

h2. Option 2. The Jesus Jones VIP Package.
Within this package, you will get:
1) The DVD as above, FULLY SIGNED. However, as purchasers of the VIP package will be helping us to fund the release of the DVD, it’s only right we acknowledge the help you’re giving us. So, anyone who gets the VIP Package gets their name in the credits of the DVD, as an “executive producer”! Again, once the pre-sale ends, this option vanishes forever. The DVD will come with a download code to access a digital audio file of the entire show.
2) Exclusive Jesus Jones “Crew” shirt.To celebrate the filming of theshow, each purchaser of the VIP package will also get a limited edition “executive producer” T-shirt, with commemorative backprint. The crew shirt will only ever be available as part of this package, and will never be offered for sale again.
3) Retro Flyposter. A specially designed poster for the Bull & Gate show, in the style of a flyposter from 1989. We’re going old school! This poster will only ever be available as part of this package, and will never be reprinted.
4)Never Enough Promo Poster. A reproduction of the limited edition, promo-only poster for the “Never Enough” single, back in 1989. This limited edition repress will only ever be available as part of this package, and will never be offered for sale again.
5) Never Enough Skateboard Stickers. Reproduction of the stickers which came as a limited edition extra with initial copies of the “Never Enough” single. These reproductions will include the rare “window sticker” variant, which was never released to the public. Again, these stickers will only be available as part of this package, and will be discontinued straight after the pre-sale finishes.

So, there you have it! We’re hoping you’ll enjoy the DVD, or the VIP Package – whichever you choose to purchase. We’ll always be grateful to all of the fans who’ve supported us – and your support on the pre-sale is the reason this entire project can get off the ground – it simply wouldn’t be possible without you, and your help.
