February’s Record Club: BOWIE – A Vinyl Celebration


Join us at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 11th February to celebrate the music of David Bowie.

From Liza Jane to Lazarus, we’ll be playing records spanning his 52-year recording career, exploring his early R&B and mod days and listening to his final album ‘Blackstar’ in full.

We’ll also have time to share our favourite David Bowie (and Bowie-related) records throughout the session, so bring some Bowie vinyl along with you to play.

BOWIE – A Vinyl Celebration

British Blues – music played

It was great to see a packed Labour Club for our first session of 2016. Thank you all for coming and listening.

Big thanks to Peter Carefoot for putting the session together and sharing the stories of what the records he played mean to him. Those stories are what makes record club so special. Thanks also to everyone else who brought along records to play.

Our next session is Thursday 11th February and will be a David Bowie special. More details on that in the coming days.
