Firstly, a big thank you to Quiet Loner for sharing two of his favourite albums with us and introducing them with keen insight. It was a special moment when the stylus got stuck during Elvis Costello’s ‘Indoor Fireworks’, a true reminder that we really were playing music from vinyl.
And finally, thanks to everyone who came along and making our second session a big success. I had to bring in more tables and chairs so there must have been more people than last time! Lots of great suggestions for future sessions too.
Thanks to Rich for the photos. Below is a complete list of the songs played.
We’ll be back at the labour club on Sunday 20th October from 1-4pm as part of the Oktoberfest. It’s a BRING YOUR OWN VINYL session, so root out your records and bring them down. We’ll be having just one featured album (to be decided on the day, but likely to be a choice of The Rolling Stones’ Let It Bleed, Who’s Next by The Who and Led Zeppelin III).
The next Thursday session is November 14th, which will be ‘Cult Heroes’. More details on that to come, but in the meantime here’s a little teaser.
