A big thanks to Gavin who put together a brilliant evening of music, illustrating the evolution of Talk Talk, from synth pop to post rock. Spirit Of Eden is, without doubt, one of the most atmospheric and moving albums we’ve ever played and made for a brilliant session and post-album discussion. It’s what record club was made for. Thanks to all who came and listened.

We’ll be back on Thursday 9th May for an evening of Curtis Mayfield on vinyl. Details soon.

April’s Record Club: TALK TALK’S SPIRIT OF EDEN

GRC TalkTalk.jpg

We’re back on Thursday 11th April with Gavin Hogg at the helm to play what is considered to be one of the greatest albums of the 1980s on vinyl and in full – Talk Talk’s ‘Spirit Of Eden’ – along with a selection of cuts from their other albums. It’s a record we’ve wanted to play for quite some time, and following the recent death of the band’s vocalist and songwriter, Mark Hollis, we thought this would make a fitting tribute to a very distinctive and singular voice.

A year in the making, the album was released in 1988 to a rather muted response, but over time it’s reputation has grown and it’s now considered a classic, hugely influential on many bands and artists including Doves, Elbow and Wild Beasts among others.

Writing for The Guardian following Mark Hollis’s death, Jude Rogers described the album as a “long, meditative, immersive experience – extended journeys into the possibilities of ambient sound, influenced not by what surrounded their makers, but by the spaces between; of the improvised nature of jazz and modern classical composition, as well as strange, oblique poetry.” Read the full piece here. Also worth reading is this piece on The Quietus.

Doors open at 8pm, music starts 8.30pm. We hope to see you there.

March’s Record Club: TRANS-EUROPE MUSICAL EXPRESS

GRC_TransEuropeMusicalExpress (1)

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 14th March for TRANS-EUROPE MUSICAL EXPRESS.

“What’s all that about?” you may ask. Well, the aim will be to play as many different tracks from as many different European countries as possible. And that’s where you, dear record clubber, can play your part.

From French chanson to German kosmische, Italian house to Austrian oompah, Scandi pop to Liechtensteinian death metal, get digging through your collections and bring along music of a European origin to play.

For our purposes, the UK and Ireland are excluded, UNLESS it’s a British or Irish artist with a particular release recorded in Europe. David Bowie and Depeche Mode in Berlin? Yes! T.Rex and Elton John in France? Why not! Led Zeppelin in Stockholm? Maybe not… The same rule applies for acts from non-European countries. So that’s good news for Nick Cave, Donna Summer and Iggy Pop.

I’m sure you get the idea.

One more thing. It’s geographical, not political, so leave your politics at the door and enter a neutral zone. For one night only we’ll be like Switzerland, but without the Toblerones and bank accounts.

See you there!
