July’s Record Club: USA 1969

GRC1969

We’re back at Glossop Labour Club on Thursday 11th July for USA 1969, when we’ll be going back exactly 50 year to explore from and inspired by America.

With the focus of our 1967 and 1968 sessions being primarily on UK music, this time we turn our attention to the USA, taking in tracks from the incendiary debuts by The Stooges and MC5 among others. From Detroit to Woodstock to Altamont, change was definitely in the air. We’ll also feature a few tracks by British artists under the influence of American soul, country and blues, who went so far as to record over there, resulting in some of their best work.

And it’s a Brit abroad that gives us our featured album  – Dusty Springfield’s ‘Dusty In Memphis’, recorded in Memphis and New York after signing to Atlantic Records in 1968. Surprisingly, the album saw no chart action in the UK, and only just scraped into the Billboard 100 in the USA. But, as with so many albums that flopped at the time, it’s reputation grew, and is now regarded as a classic, and Dusty’s definitive album.

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!
