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...

Whilst at the same time remaining in a lovely location just outside Hainult Forest what feels like the last weekend of summer. And of course, there’s some bands playing and that… After an initial mooch about the site, we discover... (continued) [read more]

    "After three days of intensive cycling, mental endurance, energy drinks and hugely friendly German folk with their lovely broken English conversations with me that kept me going, I arrived at Berlin (with a very sore legs. AND arse). So I lock up my bike against a road sign in Mitte , check in at my hostel and cane Bowie on my ipod whilst walking round the city at night. However..." [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. So she waited patiently for ... (continued) [read more]
