BUDDY HOLLY with Bill Jubb – records played


Bill (left) with friend and fellow Buddy Holly fan Chris

Not only was it Glossop Record Club’s 3rd birthday, but with the help of rock & roll historian Bill Jubb we celebrated the 80th birthday of Buddy Holly with a selection of songs from throughout Buddy’s short but prolific career and plenty of stories along the way. Bill was ably assisted by friend and fellow Buddy Holly superfan Chris. We even had one attendee who was lucky enough to have seen Holly in concert at Sheffield City Hall in 1958 (and still has the ticket stub to prove it). We were also treated to live music by Steve Roberts with a song about his own connection to Buddy Holly.

We’ll be back on Thursday 13th October for a night of Punk, details soon.

An evening with Paul Du Noyer: Post-session review


Armed with a notepad and a stack of records, our resident Parky*, Gavin Hogg, played the perfect host to our guest, music writer Paul Du Noyer, asking what he described as “a mix of vaguely insightful and plainly ridiculous questions.”

Paul graciously responded by talking about McCartney, Bowie, Deaf School, the difference between the musical cultures of Liverpool and London, his years in the music press, took loads of questions from the audience and told THE best Van Morrison anecdote you’ll ever hear. I bet we could have kept him talking all night. The pile of records was barely touched!


Listen to an hour of highlights here.


Some comments from the world of social media:

Great club w/ Paul du Noyer skillfully compered by Loved the Van Morrison story & the Jimmy Campbell tip.

Great night last night – very interesting. Loved the story of Dylan as a fanboy.

Very enjoyable and entertaining session tonight – Paul Du Noyer in conversation with . Great stories and insights.

Fab night!

Tremendous evening yesterday at c/o . Paul Du Noyer’s insights from a career in music journalism were fascinating.

PROG: Music played

Thanks to everyone who came to the Prog Rock spectacular and of course to John for choosing the tunes and sharing his memories of those times. There was lots of air guitar/drums/keyboards/woodwind going on throughout the night! Also thanks to Beany and Scotty for the bonus tracks. And apologies to fans of Emerson Lake & Palmer. The curse of record club strikes again.


Thanks for an ace night & thanks to John for the tunes. My ears have been treated to some epic wonders #progtastic

Had a good night at Prog night and was blown away by  Morning  by T2.

My first time and it was nice to sit with like minded people with the love for Vinyl.

Progressive rock legend Emerson dies. The curse strikes again!

We’re back on Thursday 14th April for a Creation Records special with Darren. He can’t promise any twenty minute songs and drum solos, but there should be plenty of indiepop gems, a few shoegaze faves and a number of rather noisy tracks to enjoy. See you then.

Thanks to everyone who ventured out and braved the rather wet and miserable weather. Very brave! Wild Is The Wind indeed…

Thanks also to everyone who brought along records to share too. There was a beautiful serendipitous flow to the music after the two main albums – The Velvet Underground, John Cale and John Martyn (the last two with direct connections to Nick Drake), Judy Collins covering Bob Dylan and a Frank Sinatra song recently covered by the aforementioned Bob.

And I hope you don’t mind that I played a Johnny Mathis record, but hearing his original of Wild Is The Wind next to Nina Simone’s radical reworking really demonstrated what an amazing interpreter of song she was.

Finally, thanks to Glossop’s very own Stickboy for curating the Quiet Revolutions mix that kicked off the session and set the tone. Please check out his latest album ‘Songs from the Lower Bank’, one of my favourite albums of 2015. Buy it and support local music! Find it here.


Some comments from the night:

2 songs in and already amazing! Nina Simone.

Excellent night at @GlossopRecord can’t go wrong with Nina Simone and Nick Drake. Bit of classic Harry Nilsson to boot.

What could be better than listening to Nina Simone and Nick Drake when the rain is beating down outside? @GlossopRecord loved the Eno too.

Thanks to @GlossopRecord for another enlightening evening and the fact I’m now going to spend a load more money discovering Nick Drake!

We’ll be back on Thursday 10th December for a Christmas Social. Full details soon.

Johnny Cash Night – Post-session review

This session was everything that record club should be. Bill and Tom brought the records, Matt brought insight, a guitar and the first ever live performance to record club. And everyone listened, giving their undivided attention to two incredible albums. A very special night. “The power of music in action” as Terry commented on Twitter.

So, to the music…

In a recording career that spanned almost 50 years and with almost 100 albums to choose from (that excludes compilations), I don’t think any of us quite anticipated the emotional impact of hearing back-to-back the first and last albums Johnny Cash released in his lifetime would have.

Those bookends of The Man In Black’s musical life have become his most well-known, probably thanks to the combined success of both the biopic ‘Walk The Line’ (released in 2005) and the series of American Recordings albums released between 1994 and 2002. Johnny Cash With His Hot And Blue Guitar (from 1957) was not only Cash’s first album, but also the first album released on Sun Records, and was essentially a collection of his recordings for the label to date (Sun would continue to compile and reissue their Cash recordings for many years to come). American IV: The Man Comes Around, released in November 2002, found Cash revisiting songs he’d originally recorded in the 1960s and 70s alongside a mix of standards, classics and contemporary songs.

Both albums sounded full and powerful – the ‘boom-chicka-boom’ of the Sun recordings contrasting with the sparse atmospherics of American IV. The one constant being Cash’s voice, commanding attention throughout, and as Matt said “communicating directly so you can hear every word”.

We also had time to spin a few favourites from the big box of Johnny Cash records kindly brought along by Bill including a bootleg of a recording session with Bob Dylan (if you were listening carefully you’ll have heard Bob yodelling, much to the amusement of JC), Brett had an LP ready and waiting, and Tom got to share the hard-to-find single ‘The Chicken In Black‘.

A big ‘thank you’ to Bill, Tom and Matt for the music (and to Brett for his contribution) and thanks to everyone who came along and listened. Here are a few comments posted after the session:

My 1st record club night and what a night it was – Johny Cash’ Last – special and emotionally moving.

Silent, solemn, reverential, electric. Johnny Cash singing The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.

Hairs standing up on the back of your neck stuff. The power of music in action.

We’ll be back on Thursday 11th June for JUMP JAMAICA WAY – a voyage through Jamaica’s golden age of music with Rick Williams. See you there.
