Just one week to go until the first Glossop Record Club session on Thursday 12th September at Glossop Labour Club from 8pm. No tickets required and entry is free (although a voluntary donation to the labour club would be a nice gesture).
We’ll be listening to two albums, on vinyl and in full. The theme is 1973 and the featured album is Roxy Music’s For Your Pleasure. Votes are still coming in for the second album we’ll play (if you haven’t voted yet or want to add your own 1973 album to the poll then please do so now). Stevie Wonder is currently leading the way, with Pink Floyd a close second. If you want to bring some of your own 1973 records down anyway, albums or singles, we’ll be having a ‘free play’ slot to bring the evening to close when we’ll play as many tracks from those records as we can.
I’m pleased to announce that Agnes Guano of The Downstairs Lounge blog takes the guest slot and will be playing a few British comedy records from our chosen year.
We’ll have suggestions sheets for people to give their ideas for future events and we’ll also be announcing details of the October session.
Here’s how the evening will (roughly) break down:
8.00-8.30 pm: 1973 reel-to-reel ‘mixtape’
8.30-9.15 pm: 1st album – Roxy Music – For Your Pleasure
9.15-9.25 pm: Break
9.25-9.40 pm: Guest slot – Agnes Guano’s 1973 comedy records
9.40-10.20 pm: 2nd album – vote winner
10:20-11.00 pm: ‘Free Play’ – as many songs as we can fit in before the night ends!
