October’s Record Club: PUNK!

grc_punk

We’re back on Thursday 13th October for a night of punk and new wave on vinyl, marking 40 years since musical anarchy all kicked off with The Damned’s ‘New Rose’.

The 7″ single was the format for defining punk statements, so rather than playing a full album, we’ll be working our way through a stack of punk and new wave records (album tracks allowed) and we need your help. Bring along your punk vinyl and feel free to share any stories or memories you may have of the punk wars.

We’ll also be joined by writer David Nolan, author of ‘I Swear I Was There: The Gig That Changed The World’ – which gathers together detailed accounts of the Sex Pistols’ first gigs in Manchester by those who were there – to discuss the impact of these gigs on the people who saw them and how Manchester quickly became punk’s second city.

Finally, we’re proud to have been invited to be part of this year’s We Shall Overcome series of anti-austerity events, so please bring food and cash donations in aid of Glossopdale Foodbank and Tameside Against The Cuts. Thank you.

BUDDY HOLLY with Bill Jubb – records played

Not only was it Glossop Record Club’s 3rd birthday, but with the help of rock & roll historian Bill Jubb we celebrated the 80th birthday of Buddy Holly with a selection of songs from throughout Buddy’s short but prolific career and plenty of stories along the way. Bill was ably assisted by friend and fellow Buddy Holly superfan Chris. We even had one attendee who was lucky enough to have seen Holly in concert at Sheffield City Hall in 1958 (and still has the ticket stub to prove it). We were also treated to live music by Steve Roberts with a song about his own connection to Buddy Holly.

We’ll be back on Thursday 13th October for a night of Punk, details soon.
