February’s Record Club: BIRTHDAY No.1s NIGHT

grc_feb2020

We’re back at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 13th February, when you’ll get the chance to play one record, and one record only – the song that was number 1 in the UK singles chart on the day you were born!

You can find out what it was here officialcharts.com/archive/

Or here, if you were born before November 1952, popmusichistory.co.uk/sheet-music.

It doesn’t matter if it’s from the original single, a reissue, on an LP or compilation, so long as it’s on vinyl and plays at 33, 45 or 78, and it’d be great if you can tell us something about it too. It’ll be good fun.

If you need any help tracking down a vinyl copy of your birthday number 1 song to play, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do. Contact us here or via one of the social media links below. And don’t leave it til the last minute!

Doors open at 8pm and the music kicks off at 8.30pm. See you there.

grc_jan2020.jpg

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 9th January for the first of our new ‘Classic Album‘ sessions, playing Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours on vinyl and in full.

Released in 1977, it went on to become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time and has been an almost permanent fixture of ‘best albums’ lists ever since. We’ll briefly explore the band’s origins in the British blues boom of the late 1960s, their ever-changing lineup and the making of the album, before we play it in full.

Doors open at 8pm and the music kicks off at 8.30pm.

NOVEMBER’S RECORD CLUB: A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… in 10 Records – with Dr Peter Wadsworth

grc_strrawberry_nov2019

On Thursday 14th November, we’ll be exploring the amazing legacy of Strawberry Recording Studios, the Stockport-based studio founded by the future members of 10cc in 1967 and which played host to musicians of all kinds – from Neil Sedaka, Bay City Rollers and Paul McCartney to Buzzcocks, Joy Divison, The Ramones and St Winifred’s School Choir! Not forgetting 10cc themselves.

To take us through that story, we’ll be welcoming Strawberry Studios historian Dr Peter Wadsworth to Glossop Record Club for ‘A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… In 10 Records‘.

Peter was the driving force behind the excellent Strawberry exhibition at Stockport Museum in 2017, and with his PhD in the legendary studio, there is no better person to take us through its illustrious past, from its humble beginnings above a record shop to producing international hits by a staggering variety of artists, to its closure in the early 1990s.

Doors open at 8pm and the talk will begin at 8.30pm. See you there!
