Communion: Amber Run// The Kazimier/ 14.3.14 | LSRadio - Liverpool Student Radio
'Communion – the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially on a mental or spiritual level' or so read the poster for the first Communion Club Night in Liverpool, due to take place at The Kazimier. For those of you who don't know, Communion is a club night that was first established in London in 2006 by the trio of Ben Lovett (Mumford and Sons), Kevin Jones (Bear's Den) and producer Ian Grimble. Their home was popular student haunt, Notting Hill Arts Club. It was the genesis of the nu-folk scene that emerged around that time, and showcased acts like Noah and the Whale, Laura Marling, Mumford and Songs and King Charles. So they arguably had a lot to live up to, showcasing new talent (mainly) from the Liverpool area. Collectors Club, the first act of the night, are a 5 piece, comprising of two guitars, keyboards bass and drums. They played happy brand of melodic pop. Tight 4/4 drum grooves, smooth falsetto, and popping lines on guitars were the order of the day
