On Thursday 12th May, we welcome respected author and music journalist Paul Du Noyer to Glossop Record Club.


If you’ve picked up a British music magazine over the past 35 years or so, the chances are you’ll have read Paul’s work. He was a writer at the NME, editor of Q, founding editor of Mojo and associate editor of the greatly missed Word magazine.

He’s interviewed the likes of David Bowie, Mick JaggerMadonna, Pavarotti and nearly everyone with a strong connection to The Beatles, not least Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.

He’s also written several books including definitive musical histories of Liverpool and London, plus tomes dedicated to John Lennon and seminal art-rock band Deaf School. His latest book, Conversations With McCartney, draws from the many interviews Du Noyer has conducted with Macca over the years.


He’ll be in conversation with Gavin Hogg, no doubt discussing all of the above and playing a few records relating to his books along the way too. So get ready with your own questions but make sure you do your research!

Thursday 12th May from 8pm
Glossop Labour Club, Chapel Street, Glossop, SK13 8AT

Big thanks to Darren for putting together an excellent session that took us right back to the beginnings of Creation Records and the classics they gave us over the years. Great to hear The Jesus and Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine pumping through the labour club PA. Ear-splitting stuff indeed!
