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!

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 sawĀ protests and riots on the streets of London,Ā 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.Ā 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 masterpieceĀ 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.

Itā€™s all happening at Glossop Labour Club. Doors open at 8pm, the music starts at 8.30pm and itā€™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.
