April’s Record Club: TALK TALK’S SPIRIT OF EDEN

GRC TalkTalk.jpg

We’re back on Thursday 11th April with Gavin Hogg at the helm to play what is considered to be one of the greatest albums of the 1980s on vinyl and in full – Talk Talk’s ‘Spirit Of Eden’ – along with a selection of cuts from their other albums. It’s a record we’ve wanted to play for quite some time, and following the recent death of the band’s vocalist and songwriter, Mark Hollis, we thought this would make a fitting tribute to a very distinctive and singular voice.

A year in the making, the album was released in 1988 to a rather muted response, but over time it’s reputation has grown and it’s now considered a classic, hugely influential on many bands and artists including Doves, Elbow and Wild Beasts among others.

Writing for The Guardian following Mark Hollis’s death, Jude Rogers described the album as a “long, meditative, immersive experience – extended journeys into the possibilities of ambient sound, influenced not by what surrounded their makers, but by the spaces between; of the improvised nature of jazz and modern classical composition, as well as strange, oblique poetry.” Read the full piece here. Also worth reading is this piece on The Quietus.

Doors open at 8pm, music starts 8.30pm. We hope to see you there.

February’s Record Club: THE VOICES OF SCOTT WALKER

grc_scottwalker_feb2019

We’re back at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 7th February (the first Thursday of the month for a change) for The Voices of Scott Walker.

From 1960s teen idol and 1970s MOR crooner to present day avant-garde explorer, we’ll be digging deep into 60 years of his music both solo and with The Walker Brothers, playing album tracks and b sides from across his career. Our full album will be Scott 4 from 1969, a flop at the time, but now considered a classic. And all on vinyl, of course! See you there.

January’s Record Club: BUZZCOCKS

grc_buzzcocks.jpg

We’re back for our first session of 2019 on Thursday 10th January with an all-vinyl doff of the cap to recently departed punk-pop genius Pete Shelley, founder of Buzzcocks, solo artist and a hugely influential figure in the history of punk.

Our main album will be Buzzcocks’ Singles Going Steady, which brings together the band’s first eight singles complete with B sides – an unparalleled run of perfect pop songs originally released between 1977 and 1979. We’ll have a handful of other tracks along the way too, including Buzzcocks’ self-released debut ep, Spiral Scratch, which set the template for punk’s DIY ethos. Plus, writer David Nolan makes a return visit to Glossop Record Club to talk about Pete Shelley’s influence and legacy.

It’s all happening at Glossop Labour Club, Thursday 10th January. Doors 8pm, music starts 8.30pm and the usual record club listening rules apply – phones off, ears open and no talking while the music plays. 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.

Big thanks to Rich from Gizeh Records and Claire from Shield Patterns for a great session. It’s rare that we have both label owner and artist as a guest to discuss their work. A fascinating insight into how’s where’s and why’s of setting up and running an independent record label, and of course some great music too.
