THISIS11 – Up in the Kitchen, Jan ’11

Oh, the deep midwinter of 2011′s been cold hasn’t it? In an attempt to warm things up a bit, Jonny Mac’s other band, Morviscous, who live and record behind Hackney Town Hall, brought their post-rock, jazz fusion, mathcore, call it what you will, and their woolen Mexican masks, to Bruno’s kitchen. There are too many…

THISIS9 – Me and You and Everyone We Know, Oct ’10

We were hoping for some Indian summer sunshine the third time we took some music to Netil Market. This time, though, it wasn’t just The London Fields on the bill, but an afternoon of incestuously interconnected musicians with sets from Simon Tulloch, Johnny du Toit, Louise Golbey, The London Fields and Rescue Cat – or Whisky Cat…

THISIS3 – Up on the (Hot Tin) Roof, May ’10

As well as seeing The London Fields on the radio, last weekend also saw Rescue Cat, Bear, and The Kittens (Louise Golbey and Cass Farry) come up to Bruno’s hot tin roof and play some luxury pop tunes on a carpet of hot tin foil. The London Fields were in attendance with some acoustic stuff,…
