    Come swap or sell your records and zines.

    Email: info@oscillationsfestival.com
    or text/call: 07871234397
    if you're interested.



    [b:cf621606b2]Saturday 11th October / Black Box / 1-6pm / FREE[/b:cf621606b2]

    Today’s event is a celebration of those with dusty fingers and inky palms. The cottage industries and labours of love that ensure that the production of music, literature and art will always be about more than simply commerce.

    We will have stalls from some of the finest homegrown record labels and distros, including cAFF/FLICK, Furious Tradesmen, We Love Records, Lazybird, No Dancing and Stitchy Press as well as wax from the extensive collections of numerous vinyl vultures.

    [b:cf621606b2]We encourage any record labels, distros, collectors or zine-makers that wish to get involved with the fair to get in touch through info@oscillationsfestival.com[/b:cf621606b2]

    Stalls will be provided free of charge. If you’d like a turn at spinning tunes throughout the afternoon, please use the same contact. For anyone else, we recommend you come down, check-out the music and zines, trade ideas, pick something up and keep these cultures alive.

    So pissed off I am actually going to miss this. Haven't bought a decent amount of vinyl in nearly a month and have withdrawal syndrome.

    Someone should organise more record fairs.

    I'd be up for this only the records I like, I want to keep, the ones I don't, I'm too embarssed to admit I bought in the first place...
  10. avatar Strong Reaction
    I'll have some second-hand punk rock and indie wax for sale. It's hard to part with, but I feel I need to trim things down a bit. :)
  11. avatar yodaISgreen
    and you can pick up your very own NOT SQUARES cassette (in a number of colours/covers)!

    ive a feeling im gonna spend too much money this weekend
  13. avatar churchwarden
    That was fun (in a brought back horrifying memories of physics degree sort of way...)

    One of these is quality workmanship....

    I demand a home-made guitar gig in Common Grounds. I know theres enough of them. Rinky's estimate was six by the time I got there.

    My haul of tapes and vinyl included Jackie Wilson and Al Green best ofs, two Kirsty MacColl albums, a Ray Charles album and a cover album of Leonard Cohen songs - and a 7" Broken family band single courtesy of Waspboy. I think I spent about £7 in total.

    More of this sort of thing!

    Yeah, cheers to all who came down to flog or buy stuff - really great atmosphere today. Shame I couldn't get round chatting to many as I was (at one point, literally) glued to the guitar workshop area.

    Managed to pick up some great stuff though, Big Black (cheers Ian!), Talking Heads, Gram Parsons, Damo Suzuki and Tom Waits along with the aforementioned Not Squares cassette (top notch it is too).

    Somehow I spent £35, I should be kept away from these things
  17. avatar Jamesy Yakuza
    Yeah, got some good finds at this, and some mittens for m'lady!
  18. avatar Baronation
    Was a good way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

    Hope to this happen again.
  19. avatar distracted
    Yes please, more of this sort of thing. £45, 45 minutes. A good mix of stuff - Quintet Of The Hot Club Of France, Prince, Merle Haggard, Le Tigre, Associates, Dry County, Damo Suzuki and more, a good fun afternoon.

    Things like this should happen more often, that seemed to be the general consensus, so let's get organised! Great atmosphere, and something a bit different for an autumn afternoon.

    Well done.
  21. avatar yodaISgreen
    Very happy with my haul too - thanks to all those who took part(i.e. took my lunch money)

    Something may be worked out. Also, I'm planning another junk guitar workshop soon.
  23. avatar tinpot anto
    Can I vote for a drunk guitar workshop instead?
  24. avatar Strong Reaction
    Surely that's just one of your gigs? :o
  25. avatar tinpot anto
    No that's a Masterclass, not a workshop. :lol:
