8th April 2016
This year marks ten years since Communion was founded as a monthly live music night at the Notting Hill Arts Club. Throughout the year, Communion will be curating a series of special events in celebration of this anniversary, starting with a vinyl only release for Record Store Day on the 16th of April.
Limited to just 1,000 copies, ‘Side Then’ features some of the biggest names to be released on Communion Records, with early workings from the likes of Ben Howard, Daughter, Catfish and The Bottlemen and Michael Kiwanuka. Complimented by a ‘Side Now’ of Communion’s current releases, the upcoming LP features unheard new material from Bear’s Den and Twin Peaks, as well as tracks from Frances, Rukhsana Merrise and Matthew and the Atlas.
Communion founders, Ian Grimble, Kev Jones and Ben Lovett said, “Communion is 10 years old! It started as a monthly night run by musicians to provide a platform for new talent and to create a melting pot of industry, artists and fans - ten years on we’re still going strong. It’s changed a little, with a fully fledged record label, live promotions business, publishing company, radio show, and festival all operating on both sides of the pond but at its core it’s still the same thing - a group of dedicated and passionate people curating and developing music for artists and fans alike. Here’s to another 10 years.”
