March’s Record Club: COVERS NIGHT

grccoversnightresize

We’re back on Thursday 9th March for COVERS NIGHT, a whole evening dedicated to the fine art of the cover version.

Often to be found lurking on b sides, charity compilations or deep within albums, the cover version is where an artist shows us a different side of themselves, whether wearing their heart on their sleeve, showing us they can have fun or indulging in some irony.

There are of course two albums of cover versions that we can’t ignore, both released by artists at the height of their early popularity back in 1973 – Bryan Ferry’s These Foolish Things and David Bowie’s Pin Ups. We’ll be pitching Ferry’s wide-ranging pop history collage against Bowie’s tightly focused tribute to his London Mod days, exploring how they both came to be made with parallel tales of fall outs, break ups and bitter rivalries. We’ll only play one of those albums in full, but the choice, as they say, will be yours.

We’ll also hear covers by bands whose songs feature on those two albums, alongside some groovy soul remakes of rock tunes, and of course there’ll be plenty of chances for you to share your favourite covers too.

So getting digging out that vinyl and see you there!
