about

For nearly six years now, No.14 Bacon St (formerly The Vintage Emporium) has been right at the heart of music in East London. From beautiful intimate candlelit gigs to riotous all night long sessions, the venue/bar/recording studio/pottery workshop has provided the means and ways for both the wide spectrum of world class musicians who can call it their second home, and the local community that enjoys the music and art that comes from the place.

Although we've been recording most of the gigs and sessions that happen at No.14 with our crowd-funded in-house studio, The Bacon St Collection has taken this one step further …

We took 17 musicians, a mix of regulars and new faces, hooked up all our microphones into the studio downstairs, locked the doors and did nine hours straight of completely unscripted recording. The result at the end of that day was forty-four electrifyingly live songs and tunes that perfectly encapsulate the spirit and vibrancy of the musical landscape here.

For Vol. I, the musicians we brought in specialised in a mixture primarily of Old Time American folk music, and 30's/40's Swing and Jazz. This juxtaposition of these styles and players created wildly dynamic performances with a poise and creativity that you only get from musicians at the top of their game playing together
for the first time. The album has been condensed down into a double CD and booklet of the best bits from the session, with all the liveness and character of the day kept in!
