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.

    From hereon-in The 405 is to invite photographer/artists types to guest produce a feature; and as guest Photo Editor they are to have free reign on what subject or imagery to tackle. 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]

    Predisposed at a festival // Found at Field Day 2012

    by Tim Boddy

    Regular readers will be aware that we have a penchant for the disposable camera - categorise it under the lo-fi/DIY love-in if you want. So with this in mind, we dropped an armful of disposable cameras around the Field Day site in Victoria Park, with instructions to take photos and pass around. [read more]

    It is now August. Yeah, I have no idea how that was allowed to happen either. So that means it's time to have a recap of July in the form of photographs from our super bunch of busy photographers. Given the season expect to see a healthy dose of festival shots included. [read more]

    Nina Kinert: wrongly unnoticed

    by Melanie Caitlin

    Nina Kinert is one of those unusual people, you don´t expect to be unusual. When I entered the venue, I was already running late and in such a hurry to get to the front I forgot to take notice of the fact that the room was close to being completely empty. Only 20 minutes prior to the show it made me feel a little sad for Kinert. When she came on stage to play the Melkweg venue in Amsterdam last night no one even noticed she was already there.
