B&W get muddy at Womad

Womad

So we’re off to Womad with welly boots and raincoats packed.

Lots of Society of Sound artists are playing – Charlie Winston, Dub Colossus, Portico Quartet, Spiro and of course Peter Gabriel – and we can’t wait to see them live.

We’re also running a big competition down there to win a Zeppelin plus Society of Sound memberships and everyone who enters gets a trial membership so no losers.

Our brand director is going too. No festival expert, he’s already packed a compass, Swiss Army knife and a first aid kit and seems very concerned about the hygiene situation. We’ll be getting him to blog about it later.

Anyone out there who’s going, please feel free to come back and comment here about who you saw, who was great and what your favourite festival moment was.

    you didn’t mention one of your first signees The Black Swan Effect who played the red tent on Sat afternoon with Mr Gabriel in attendance….they played an awesome set and deserve huge success!!!!

    You are absolutely right Sharon. They were Grindhouse when they recorded their excellent album for us and, live, they really do rock.

    Love the music & creativity of the artists-PG has been one of the true modern day songwriter/musician/performers
    and his influence brings many others to the table!
    Open the door & let them in!

    Hi everyone. For those of you who have been enjoying the B&W releases, I recorded the Ethiopian end of some of them, and also this one (latest review 5 stars) http://lastheplace.com/2009/08/17/invisible-system-punt-made-in-ethiopia/
    there is also a facebook group and page, myspace, and http://www.harperdiabate.com with album out on e.g. amazon.co.uk, play.com and many specialist record shops e.g. Sterns and Rough Trade etc. It is on itunes etc but I am considering offering it for download via our website at CD quality next. Big up to B&W who I remember from my Brighton days when Dickie first designed the Nautilus and Inner Field Sound System and remember listening to Massive Attack on it in his flat :) Enjoy the album – Invisible System – Punt (Made in Ethiopia) – Best Da
