So ATP/Willwal was finally wound up in January


#141

There is a new and mysterious promoter called “Ambidextrous Events”. They have 3 events listed:

  • Black Angels at Koko
  • Oh Sees at the Forum
  • Oh Sees at the Margate Winter Gardens

#142

Really don’t get why bands would work with baz


#143

Actually slightly looking forward to developments in this saga


#144

Oh no. I have tickets for the Oh Sees forum gig. Shall I just burn them now?


#145

Send a video of you burning them to Ambidextrous Events with the caption “you won’t fool me this time Barry!”


#146

It really depends on whether The Forum has Dyson Airblades or not.


#147

Just decided to look at when it all finally fell apart, expecting to be surprised* that it was ten years ago. Was only in 2016.

*Conscious that you cant really expect to be surprised, but you know what I mean.


#148

I really miss ATP…
Had some of the best times of my life at them…


#149

Look out, hogan’s about!


#150

notice they are still releasing albums according to their facebook. surely the asset that is the good atp name should have been sold to pay of their debts


#151

ATP Recordings is a separate company


#152

Would have though main atp would own their name even if the other company used it, plus they use the same social media and website so it still seems off to me, plus Willwal are listed as being in the sound recording and publish game so which one was the events


#153

Wilwall was events and festivals after ATP Events went bust. All ATP companies are ultimately owned by Hogan, but because of the setup, the name isn’t one company’s to sell (and I doubt it has much value now anyway)… The administrator could have licensed it to someone else for events as part of the winding up, but who really wants to be the person to try and revive ATP’s reputation these days? Far better to create your own brand.


#154

Just seems weird that willwal were listed as a record company too, suggests it was all very shady with him using whatever company he wanted to do everything, with any separation just being to limit his liability, atp recordings is officially dissolved too


#155

Basically feel Barry should have been banished never to be heard from again


#156

The record label is licensed by the Association of Tennis Professionals.
