A big thanks to Gavin who put together a brilliant evening of music, illustrating the evolution of Talk Talk, from synth pop to post rock. Spirit Of Eden is, without doubt, one of the most atmospheric and moving albums we’ve ever played and made for a brilliant session and post-album discussion. It’s what record club was made for. Thanks to all who came and listened.
We’ll be back on Thursday 9th May for an evening of Curtis Mayfield on vinyl. Details soon.
A real pleasure to play my well-loved copy of Spirit Of Eden @GlossopRecord last night. It’s such an intimate record, I wasn’t sure how it would work in a room of people but there’s so much magic in the music that it seemed to transfix everyone.

Spirit of Eden really suited a loud, reverential, listen 😎 How about an instrumentals/classical session? I’d love to blast Havanaise by Saint-Saëns and Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo.
