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.

Fortuna Pop!

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

The rest...
