• First Ever Live Release To Celebrate IVW 5th Birthday (29th Jan – 4th Feb 18)
• Limited edition of 500 individually numbered copies on black vinyl
• 180 gram vinyl
Independent Venue Week release their first ever live album as part of Record Store Day with recordings taken from shows across the week. Limited to 500 hand-numbered vinyl and only available in the UK, the release includes tracks from some of the most exciting artists who played this year. The double gate-fold record features 15 artists across seven different venues and is part of the venture’s 5th birthday celebrations.
Artists featuring include Gaz Coombes, IVW Ambassador Nadine Shah, IDLES from their BBC Music outside broadcast for BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq’s show, Slow Readers Club, LIFE who also played the launch event in London, Flamingods, Black Midi, Fizzy Blood and Horsey – a full track list is below.
Gaz Coombes, who’s unreleased track The Oaks is on the album, said “I was really happy to be part of Independent Venue Week and this track, from my new album, was played live for the very first time at the Leicester Cookie show”
Nadine Shah also shared her thoughts “I struggle when trying to explain to people the vibe and atmosphere at IVW shows – it’s something else. Luckily for me, the team recorded many live performances from a whole bunch of artists, including myself, who played this year. Listen to that loudly and it should prove plenty more useful than me telling you about it – enjoy!”
In addition to the live band performances, an interview with 100 Club owner, Jeff Horton, is the final track on record which was his speech at the venue as part of the inaugural IVW launch event last November.
