On March 5th Fuzz Club launched a new monthly mini-fest at London Fields Brewhouse in Hackney, bringing together 12 quality independent labels and a lineup of bands to showcase all the best music and vinyl under the expansive psych umbrella. Photographers Lilly Creightmore and Andrea Shamlou were onsite capturing the day.
The label market hosted big and small from the UK, US and Europe including Rocket Recording, Sonic Cathedral, Captured Tracks, Mexican Summer, Slovenly Recordings, Hands In The Dark, Fire Records, Super Fan 99, Fluffer Records, Software Recording Company, Anthology Recordings, and of course Fuzz Club.
The lineup kicked off with Fire Records’ Dutch indie psych group Rats on Rafts, followed by the abstract electronica of Gum Takes Tooth, the shamanic rhythms and fuzz laden rock of Portuguese trio 10,000 Russos, dreamy psych pop from Younghusband and the post-punk infused shoegaze of The Underground Youth.
Thanks to everyone that came down and helped to make sure the event was a big success!
Next month’s Under The Arches takes place April 2nd featuring Clinic, The Cult of Dom Keller, Pretty Lightning, Guy Blakeslee (from The Entrance Band), M!R!M and Night Shades, and the label market. Join the event page here and buy tickets here.
