November’s Record Club: 1968 – VINYL REVOLUTIONS

grc1968resize

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 8th November for 1968: Vinyl Revolutions, exploring the music of this notoriously turbulent year that saw protests and riots on the streets of London, Paris and across the USA, unrest that found its way into the music of the time.

The sunny optimism and idealism of the music of 1967 gave way to an array of different sounds. Pop turned in to rock as album sales overtook sales of singles in the UK for the first time. Some bands went deeper into psychedelia while others rejected the Summer of Love and went for a back-to-basics approach, embracing early rock & roll, Americana, folk and electric blues…

Our full album will be The Zombies baroque psych-pop masterpiece Odessey & Oracle, a flop at the time but whose reputation slowly grew over the years, gaining cult status and finally becoming acknowledged as a classic.

We’ll also be playing tracks from albums of a similar pedigree, alongside lesser-known cuts and established acts that were experimenting with new sounds and styles. And if you’ve got a favourite 1968 record you want to share, please bring it along.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.

October’s Record Club: R.E.S.P.E.C.T. Aretha Franklin

GRC_ArethaFranklin_final3.jpg

On Thursday 11th October we pay R.E.S.P.E.C.T. to Aretha Franklin with a whole night of the Queen of Soul on vinyl, concentrating on her late 60s/early 70s Atlantic Records purple patch when she was absolutely at the top of her game.

We’ll be playing Aretha’s classic 1967 album ‘I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You‘ in full, which, alongside the title track also includes Respect and Do Right Woman, Do Right Man. An absolute stormer from start to finish. We’ll also play a side each of her essential live albums – ‘Amazing Grace‘ and ‘Aretha Live at Fillmore West‘ – which capture Aretha in her element, delivering some truly astonishing performances. We’ll also have time to slip in some of her essential 45s and album cuts along the way.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.

September’s Record Club: THE SECRET SONGS OF DAVID BOWIE

GRCSecretBowieSep2018_

Join us on Thursday 13th September as we celebrate five years of Glossop Record Club with a special session dedicated to the secret songs of David Bowie.

Drawing on a wealth of demos, outtakes, live recordings and radio sessions, we’ll dig deep to reveal another face of Bowie’s career, with alternate versions of well-known songs rubbing shoulders with lesser-known cuts from the Dame’s back pages.

It’s also the story of how a 13 year-old kid fell down a Bowie-shaped rabbit hole and has yet to find a way out! Who could that be…?

David Bowie has been our most-requested artist since day one, and our two previous all-Bowie sessions have been among our most popular to date. So who are we to refuse?!

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 13th September to help mark our fifth anniversary. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and it’s free admission. See you there.

May’s Record Club: 2 TONE RECORDS

GRC_2Tone_May2018

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 10th May for a session dedicated to 2 Tone Records.

Short-lived but hugely influential, the label was started by Specials keyboard player Jerry Dammers in 1979. Inspired by labels such as Tamla Motown and Stax , it released not just music by his own band but also other bands on the late 70s Coventry scene and beyond, who fused reggae, ska and punk.

Our guide for the evening will be 2 Tone completist John Walmsley, who will be winding the clock back to 1979 and picking out choice cuts from the label’s impressive run of 32 singles and 13 albums.

See you there!
