The next Glossop Record Club session is this coming Thursday (14th November). We’ll be at Glossop Labour Club from 8pm. Entry is free, although a donation to the labour club is welcomed. Full venue and travel details here.
Our featured artists are The Velvet Underground and Rodriguez and we’ll play one album by each on vinyl and in full, with the Velvets album being decided on by votes (vote here now). Following the recent death of Lou Reed, instead of a Cult Heroes ‘mixtape’ we’ll play the 1978 compilation ‘New York Superstar’ instead.
We’ll have lots of other Cult Heroes on vinyl too. Expect to hear The Melvins, Syd Barrett, Bob Lind and The Swamp Rats. Feel free to bring along any records you think fit the theme and we’ll play a track or two from them. If you want some inspiration, this NME feature may help.
Here’s roughly how the evening will go:
8.00-8.30 – Lou Reed ‘New York Superstar’ (1978 compilation).
8.30-9.15 – The Velvet Underground poll-winning album.
9.15-10.15 – Bring Your Own Cult Hero.
10.15-11.00 – Rodriguez ‘Cold Fact’ (1970).
Hope to see you there.
