UnCovention Factory comes a London Calling

By | Published on Wednesday 2 February 2011


The UnConvention guys are staging another one of their UnConvention Factory events, this time in London, on 26 Feb, in which an impressive bunch of artists, producers and music industry types will collaborate to make and release an entire album from scratch in ten hours. The album will be based on The Clash’s seminal long player ‘London Calling’.

Organisers say the aim of the event is to “demystify the music industry, laying bare the processes involved, and allowing participants a unique insight into what often seems a rather impenetrable business, with a view to inspiring all involved to pursue their own creative endeavours”.

Alongside all the music making, which will take place at The Roundhouse, will be a number of panels, workshops and showcases. Among those due to take part are Jagz Kooner, Jon McClure, John Robb, Scott Cohan, Ian Johnson (Enter Shikari), Viv Albertine (ex The Slits), Charli XCX and reps from MusicGlue, Domino Records, Green Man, The Guardian, 6music, Lee Fest, Eden Sessions, Buzzin Fly Records and Strummerville.
