On Thursday 10th November, Richard Knox, founder of the Manchester-based independent record label Gizeh Records joins us to present an evening of music drawn from the label’s vinyl releases.
Richard is also one half of Shield Patterns (the other half being Claire Brentnall), whose latest album Mirror Breathing was released in September to a plethora of great reviews, and this is the album we’ll be hearing in full.
I’m sure many of you will know Rich and Claire as regulars at record club, but this is a rare opportunity to hear music presented by the artists themselves and to find out more about its creation. There will also be a small selection of Gizeh releases to browse and buy.
More about Gizeh Records (from their website):
“Gizeh Records is an independent label based in Manchester, UK. Founded by Richard Knox in Leeds, 2004 and focusing on a fiercely DIY ethic, Gizeh has grown with it’s artists over the years to form a strong community of musicians and artists from around the world, most of them collaborating together over the years across various projects, helping the label and those involved progress and evolve in an organic, inspiring and galvanising way.
It is our aim to conduct ourselves with modesty and humility in an ever changing industry. We put love, care and passion into our records and our artists and continue to push our ideals and our collective as far as we can within the means that we have. We have no care for genres or pigeon-holes – simply the noise of harmony and the harmony of noise and the inspiration and spirit of the people who are making that noise.”
See you there.
