[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 email@example.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.
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.
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).
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.

Something may be worked out. Also, I'm planning another junk guitar workshop soon.
