In Photos Special: Independent Label Market 2012 - Spitalfields

In Photos Special: Independent Label Market 2012 - Spitalfields

by Tim Boddy, 19 May 2012

The 405 spent a thoroughly pleasant couple of hours at the Independent Label Market in Spitalfields - where a dangerous (to our wallets anyhow) amount of vinyl, CDs, cassetes, badges, coffee and hangovers were on offer, from all our favourite labels.

A smashing atmosphere in terms of company and goodwill was absorbed, alongside a range of oddities to explore. Such as the 'Bobby Womack Experience' via XL Recordings; simply stick your head in an astronaut's helmet, and see what Womack would see and hear. Check out the photos from the annual London-based event in this article.

The Bobby Womack experience at the XL Recordings stall




Chess Club, who we learned went to great lengths to source these retro cassette players

Fortuna Pop!


The Fabric stall, where a lucky dip was on offer for £5; prizes from Fabriclive Cd's to fabricfirst memberships


The rest...

Up for inclusion will be a myriad of photo-related topics based on what others are already lined-up; from non-music related photo-books, art-based exhibitions and illustrations. Yup, it's going to be a broad affair bathed in a vibrant elective basin - not always even set in the realms of music. [read more]
