FREE Islington music gig and meal afterwards

Peter has offered to host this Meetup as there are some great free gigs in Islington's Union Chapel on Saturdays. There is a possibility of having an affordable meal in The Famous Cock Pub afterwards.

Daylight Music + Field Harmonics + Daniel Marcus Clark + Bitch 'n' Monk 

Daylight music as featured in Time Out - 101 Things To Do in London & The Rough Guide to Make the Most of Your Time in Britain. At Time Out Venue of the Year! Produced by Arctic Circle.

*Entry to Daylight Music is free but we ask you consider giving a small donations (suggested donation £3.50) which we put towards the running costs and expenses of bring these bands from all over the country and the world to the venue. Thank you for your support!

The Saturday lunchtime gigs at the Union Chapel are a bit of a hidden secret. It is a brilliant venue ( you may have seen it on the BBC as they sometimes do concerts from there). There are 2 other acts on as well as the one below. Daniel Marcus Clark and Bitch & Monk. They have a very eclectic mix of acts on and they are always good. It is very friendly there , doesn't get too full ( although it can take 1000 people) and you can choose where you want to sit. Either near the front ( which i do) or at the back if you want to be on your own a bit. You can get tea/coffee, cakes, quiche and other snacks in there and there is a bar. I can only say , i think it is brilliant. It is just over the road from the station ( Just look up and it is the big building with the church tower). I suggest we meet outside from 11.30and then after ( about 2.30) we can go for something to eat at 'The Famous Cock, next to the station. It may be a bit full cos it's an Arsenal pub and there will be football on the tv but we can see on the day and if it is we can go somewhere else.

Field Harmonics Biography

Field Harmonics is the new solo project of Midlands-based multi-instrumentalist Robert Glover, who is also one half of ambient pop experimentalists epic45 and co-founder of the Wayside and Woodland record label. Taking musical influence from 80s synth-pop and electronica, the 2013 album 'Walls' is an astonishingly effective blend of pulsing electronic pop and dreamlike ambience. Glover's boldest statement yet, ‘Walls’ is a pop subversion of epic45’s psychogeographic aural aesthetic.

The music here occupies the place where the Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode and Boards Of Canada meet, reflecting a love for the pop music of his childhood and the mysterious electronica that emerged throughout the 90s. The album is crammed with soaring warm analogue melodies over which Glover pours his heart out, evoking the passionate atmosphere of indie dance floors everywhere and the bands close to his childhood heart: New Order, Human League, OMD, Tears For Fears and Soft Cell.

The songs deal in a deep melancholia, they are stories of loss and change, yet always with an eye on the future and better days to come. Driven by a very personal shift for Glover from the rural landscape of his childhood to the post-industrial ruins of a nearby city, Glover’s first solo album also rests at the point where these two landscapes collide.

This is an album for those who pine for the days of honest electronic pop music that is heartfelt and created with all of the right intentions.

Field Harmonics will be playing throughout the UK and Europe in 2014, after successful support slots with 80s synth-pop legends, Visage, as well Still Corners (Sub Pop) and Lapalux (Brainfeeder).

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
