GRC_DavidHepworth_April2018

UPDATE: Our online ticket allocation for this event has now sold out. We have just two tickets left that will be available on the door on the night. Please get in touch if you would like to reserve them. THIS IS A TICKET ONLY EVENT. Thank you.


On Thursday 19th April, we welcome veteran writer and broadcaster David Hepworth to Glossop Record Club to discuss his best-selling books ‘Uncommon People‘ and ‘1971: Never A Dull Moment‘ and his lengthy career as a music journalist, magazine editor and publisher with our host Gavin Hogg. We’ll play a few records relating to the books along the way as well as the chance to ask David your own questions.

If you’ve picked up a British music magazine in the last 40 years, you’ll have encountered David’s work. From the early days of Smash Hits, to founding Q, Mojo and The Word, he’s been an ever-present figure in some of the most successful and influential music magazines.

As a presenter, he fronted Whistle Test in its final few years alongside fellow music journalist Mark Ellen and was also part of the presentation team for Live Aid in 1985. Along with Mark, he’s also the host of the excellent A Word In Your Ear podcast, where he discusses music books with their authors.

AN EVENING OF THE FALL: Records Played

Across the country in the last few weeks, in the back rooms of pubs and in small independent venues, people have been finding their own ways to commemorate the life and genius of Mark E Smith, play his music and share stories. Defiantly single-minded and fiercely independent to the end, this is how he deserves to be remembered, with DIY celebrations organised by those who loved his music.

And in a packed Glossop Labour Club, that’s exactly what we did, with the help of Gavin, Darren and Steve and several piles of records. With personal recollections and readings from a few choice books about Smith and The Fall, between them they managed to navigate 40 years of music – from the first EP to the last LP – each track and every tale reminding us why (despite or because of?) they were such a unique band. We were also lucky enough to welcome two ex-members – Simon Wolstencroft (drums 1986-1997) and Ben Pritchard (guitar 2001-2006) – who really brought to life what it was like to be in The Fall and work with Mark E Smith.

It’s a night we won’t forget.

Thanks to Gavin, Darren and Steve for putting this session together and also to Funky Si and Ben for being so generous with their time and stories.

Listen to some of the music played here or on the player at the end of this post.
