With London’s Independent Label Market only a few short weeks away, the organisers have detailed some of the exclusive market goods which will be stocked by labels participating at the event.
Taking place on Saturday 23rd July at London's Spitalfields, there will be a load of exclusives, rarities, signed merchandise and advance copies for music fans to snap up on the day.
One Little Indian has confirmed it will be bringing a boot load of exclusives to the market including some exclusive pieces from Bjork’s digital exhibition, along with some brand new Bjork discography tees.
Sub Pop — the label that signed the likes of Nirvana, Soundgarden and Mudhoney — will have rare official Sub Pop/Loser t-shirts, hard to find in the UK, along with Sub Pop and Hardly Art compilations free with any purchase.
Erol Alkan’s Phantasy Records will be bringing some limited edition deluxe vinyl pressings of ‘The Soft Bounce’, the debut album by Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve to the market. The album’s mirrored gatefold cover, designed by Erol Alkan and Phil Sims, must be seen to be believed.
As well as music and merchandise of all kinds, the Independent Label Market has joined forces with the London Brewers’ market who will be on hand to wet your whistle with everything from pilsners to porters.
Visitors will also get a unique opportunity to meet some of the brewers behind London’s thriving beer scene, too. There will be a beer garden set up amongst the ILM and Brewer's stalls, where there will be product sampling, live music and DJ sets throughout the day.
