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.

Smiley chaps at Lex


Sunday Best in their Sunday best


Full Time Hobby, the label that Seams recently signed to...


...And a Seams bag nearby


Moshi Moshi


R&S Records, who had a great deal of test pressings and other goodies on offer


The Bobby Womack experience at the XL Recordings stall




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



Factory Floor at the O. Genesis stall



Tim Burgess



Fortuna Pop!


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


The rest...

    Nina Kinert: wrongly unnoticed

    by Melanie Caitlin

    Nina Kinert is one of those unusual people, you don´t expect to be unusual.

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]

    "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.

    In Photos Special: August 2011

    by Tim Boddy

    With the strong stench of possibilities in regards to new starts (condensed in syntax form to that month known as September) upon us, it is time for our monthly look back at the previous month. Yes, August. August is somewhat of a dry month in terms of gigs - unlike the weather ay - what with festival season in full swing; so a cut-down version of In Photos is evident here, and a rather outdoorsy affair it is too.
