Chinese Football - Self-Titled 2x12" LP DK139
Chinese Football - Self-Titled 2x12" LP
It's truly an honour to be reissuing Chinese Football's internationally-adored, midwest-emo-inspired classic self-titled 2xLP on vinyl for it's 5-year anniversary. It's hard to describe how much this album really means to us; to still experience so much nostalgia with every single listen, even after such a long time of putting it on weekly (or even daily) makes this such a special album from an equally special band. We've been working on this in secret for almost exactly one whole year, and have come up with three great-looking vinyl variants for you to choose from. The spec is very similar to the original Weary Bird pressing, which includes both of the original bonus tracks, pressed on double vinyl housed in thick gatefold covers and a slightly larger lyric sheet.
Please read our advice in the 'pressing information' section if you're planning to order the pinwheel 'football' variant!

We aim to dispatch all orders within 1-2 working days (excluding weekends and bank holidays). All orders placed through Dog Knights will always receive free promotional flyers, stickers, digital download codes, and maybe even a free record with larger orders, whenever possible.
Always read the item description carefully. Pre-orders are clearly noted at the top of the item description as “pre-order” along with an estimated shipping date, which is liable to change at any time due to the long process of vinyl manufacturing. This information is also added to the drop-down tab on every selectable product listing that is an active ‘pre-order’ - so it’s impossible to proceed without acknowledging. Please do not email us in June to ask where your order is, if you’ve added a product that reads ‘Due To Ship Mid-July’ to your cart.
The best way to stay up to date with active pre-order (bad news or good news), is to occasionally check our social media pages at @dogknights across all platforms. It saves both our time to quickly check these pages before emailing us asking for an update on a pre-order when we’ve been regularly updating these pages.
Need to make a change to your address? No problem, mistakes happen! Just email firstname.lastname@example.org before your order has shipped and we will do our best to amend this in time.
If you believe your order has gone missing or arrives damaged in any form, please email email@example.com along with your order #, full name + address, the date you placed the order, and any other information that could prove useful to us.
We are forever grateful to all of our customers for supporting Dog Knights and our bands. Please treat us with respect, like we will to you. Any uncalled-for aggression or rude behaviour will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly, however we deem fit.
As of 1st October, PayPal changed their refund policy and will no longer refund the “transaction fees” — meaning all small businesses will actually lose money whenever a customer requests a refund. It goes without saying, but we are a small label and it’s incredibly unhelpful to ask for a refund if you’ve simply “changed your mind”. All money directly goes toward future projects and/or the band. If there’s no other choice but to issue a refund, the non-refundable fees that have already been collected by PayPal (approximately 5% of the entire order) will not be returned.
Further information can be found in our FAQ/T&C's section at the top of our store page.
This is the first pressing through Dog Knights, limited to 1000 copies. Both records are housed in thick 350gsm gatefold jackets with a double-sided full-colour insert. All copies also include an immediate download of the full LP.
White w/ Black Football (Pinwheel Effect*) /200 (Dog Knights Exclusive)
Clear w/ Blue & White Splatter A/B, Clear w/ Blue & Black Splatter C/D /300
White A/B, Black C/D /500
*The 'pinwheel' effect with a white/black colour combination yields unpredictable results, but our mockups should be fairly accurate as we used an existing photo of a record pressed through GZ for reference. Still, do not order this variant if you are expecting your copy to look exactly like the mockup. Sides A/C should come out streaky and sides B/D should be blotchy, but both run the risk of either colour dominating the other. If you want something clean, purchase the splatter or white/black variants.
