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!

February’s Record Club: NEW ORLEANS funk & soul

grcneworleans

We’re back on Thursday 9th February for a taste of the funky flavours and soulful sounds of New Orleans.

The Crescent City has long been a cultural melting pot, especially when it comes to music. The birthplace of jazz, home to the blues, not mention rhythm & blues and rock & roll, it has produced more than it’s fair share of influential musicians, songwriters and performers. We’d need more than just one evening to even begin to scrape the surface of all it has to offer, so instead we’ll be focusing on the soul and funk that emanated from New Orleans in the 1960s and 70s. And what better time to celebrate than during the month of Mardi Gras?

Several names loom large from this period – songwriter and producer Allen Toussaint, singer Lee Dorsey, and funk legends The Meters, who also doubled up as the backing band on dozens of classic funk and soul tunes during this time – we’ll be playing records featuring all three. We’ll also hear from Mac Rebennack, the session pianist turned Night Tripper, better known as Dr John, with some heavy voodoo vibes, along with whatever else we can squeeze on the turntable.

See you there!

January’s Record Club: NOTHING IS REAL

grcnothingisrealresize

We kick off our 2017 sessions on Thursday 12th January with NOTHING IS REAL, a trip into the world of homage, parody, pastiche and pseudonyms.

The first of our featured albums will be 25 O’Clock by The Dukes Of Stratosphear. Released in 1985 by a well-known new wave band in disguise, the album is an homage to 1960s psychedelia and transcends mere pastiche and parody to be a brilliant piece of work in its own right.

dukes

Much the same can be said of our second album, Neil Innes’ brilliantly realised songs for the spin-off Monty Python mockumentary The Rutles. Once you get past the ‘spot the Beatles’ references (of which there are loads crammed into every song), it’s actually a hugely enjoyable album, made with genuine love and affection that even the Fabs themselves approved of. Sadly their publishers didn’t. But that’s another story.

rutles

And as these are both short albums, Brett will be sharing a few more records that fit the theme, including Spinal Tap and Bad News.

Plus, just who was Arnold Corns?!

See you there.

December’s Record Club: CHRISTMAS SOCIAL

XmasSocial2016.jpg

On Thursday 8th December, it’s our second Glossop Record Club CHRISTMAS SOCIAL.

Kicking off at 8pm at Glossop Labour Club, it’s our end-of-year blow out – a chance to get together, have a chat over a pint about music and put the world to rights. Well, maybe not that last bit.

Of course, vinyl will be at the heart of the night with the team from ALL FM’s Charity Shop Classics on hand to spin some of their favourite charity shop finds throughout the evening. Feel free to bring down any records you want to get onto the turntable too.

And as it’s Christmas, we’ll also have a bit of fun with a music quiz and Secret Santa.

If you want to take part in Secret Santa, you’ve gotta give to receive! Here’s how it’ll work:

  1. Choose a record, ideally an LP, maybe from a charity shop, a secondhand shop or even a spare from your own collection. Don’t spend more than a fiver.
  2. Don’t just get any old tat! It has to be something you wouldn’t mind having yourself. And please check that the record is in good condition. We don’t want any damaged styli!
  3. Wrap it up, bring it with you to record club and pop it in the Secret Santa record box.
  4. If you’ve put a record in, that means you’ll get one back! We’ll do the draw before the end of the session.

Easy! If it’s not clear, just get in touch.

And don’t forget, there’s a Glossopdale Foodbank collection point at the labour club, so please bring along a food donation if you can. More details here: http://glossopdalefoodbank.info/how-to-help/donate/

So. That’s a music quiz. Secret Santa. Charity Shop Classics DJ set. Bring Your Own Vinyl. Beer. And you!

See you there.
