PUNK! Records played

glcdnim

What a night! Thanks to everyone who came down to our PUNK session, great to see the Labour club packed out and buzzing.

After a scene-setting reel-to-reel tape of Top 20 hits recorded from the radio in October 1976 and an ear-blasting spin of The Damned’s New Rose to cleanse the air, we welcomed writer David Nolan, who, along with ‘surprise’ guest Ian Moss, took us back to June 1976 and the very first Manchester gig by the Sex Pistols, how it came about, the impact it had and the legacy it helped create.

That was followed with a fantastic run of punk singles (plus a couple of album tracks), all played at high volume, and came as close as we could get to recreating the visceral punk experience. The full list of records played is below, along with links to the podcast.

Thanks to Steve and Scotty for bringing their boxes of punk records for people to choose from and play, and also to everyone else who brought records along to share. And of course, big thanks to David and Ian for their fascinating insights and recollections.

Finally, thanks to all who generously brought food donations for the Bare Necessities Glossopdale Food Bank and for supporting We Shall Overcome.

Some comments…

Fantastic night-absolutely loved it…could have listened to Dave and Ian all night!

Another great night at club. Excellent talk from  

Fascinating Club Punk Vinyl night. Never heard Riff Raff before.

Punk. I swear I was there!

My ears are still ringing after last night’s punk session!

Thanks for a brilliant night.loved your Tony Wilson impression darling. Thanks to Ian Moss for his great insight.

thanks for a great night; Ian + are the best double act I’ve seen in a long time!

Great music and the Record Club just gets better and better & is fast becoming THE event for serious music lovers. Bravo.

We’ll be back on Thursday 10th November for an evening with Gizeh Records including a playback of the new Shield Patterns album. Details soon.

Krautrock! – Records Played

spines

‘Generation after generation of fans discover in Krautrock a peerless hallucinatory pageant for the mind’s eye, a sound in which absolute freedom and absolute disciplince coexist, a rejoicing cosmic “yes” delivered with the roaring attack of punk.’
(Simon Reynnolds foreword in Future Days by David Stubbs)

I can’t tell you how much of a buzz it was to play some of my favourite records, through big speakers, cranked up loud and seeing everyone getting into it. Every track sounded amazing – the kosmische of Tangerine Dream and the experimental pranks of Faust, the hypnotic motorik beats of Can and Neu! and the elektronische musik of Kraftwerk and Harmonia. I’ve never seen a room of people gripped by a piece of music in the way Can’s Mother Sky did. A night to remember and such a pleasure and privilege to share this music with you all. Thank you.

Here are a few comments posted online after the session.

Just listened to Mother Sky by Can on proper speakers at Glossop Record Club. That was some phenomenal shizzle.

Neu! & Faust on vinyl tonight at What a wonderful evening.

Krautrock night was enlightening. Can track was amazing and Neu ’75 was fantastic.

It was exhilarating to hear Hero by Neu! played GOOD AND LOUD last night at .

v good and a top nite had.

I’m now on the hunt for Can and Neu records!

This was amazing!

“Can’ sounded brilliant and just ordered the ‘Neu’75’ album.

Great night.

Extremely enjoyable evening, came away with some new inspiration and something to seek out, thank you all involved.

Don’t forget, we’re taking our annual break in August but back on September 8th, marking what would have been Buddy Holly’s 80th birthday with the help of our resident rock & roll historian Bill Jubb. Enjoy the summer and see you in September.

July’s Record Club: KRAUTROCK!

GRC_Krautrock_resize

On Thursday 14th July, we’ll be focussing on experimental German music of the 1960s and 1970s, commonly know as Krautrock or Kosmische music.

It’s a scene that never existed. A term concocted by British music journalists in the 1970s and made popular in the 1990s by Julian Cope’s Krautrocksampler, the Arch Drood’s essential guide to the albums made by this dispirate collection of bands and musicians, tied together by the coincidences of nationality and of producing experimental music during the same era. Some built up cult followings in the UK and across Europe, but nearly all languished in obscurity in their home country. However, like all the best underground music its importance has grown over the years, its influence reaching far and wide.

sleeves

Our foray into Krautrock will take in tracks by Faust, Can and Kraftwerk and our featured album will be Neu! 75, the duo’s third album, which pointed the way to punk, post-punk and ambient music and was also a huge influnce on David Bowie during his Berlin years (as were many German bands of that time).

neu75.jpg

Time permitting, we’ll also feature the Kosmische of Tangerine Dream and Edgar Froese, the electronic and rock melting pot of Harmonia and the relatively conventional sounds of Amon Duul II and whatever else we can squeeze in.

For the curious and those wishing to know more in advance, David Stubbs’ comprehensive overview Future Days is well worth a read, as is the aforementioned Krautrocksampler by Julian Cope (if you can get your hands on it*). Or you can simply watch the BBC4 documentary from a few years back.

*There’s a PDF of Krautrocksampler out there if you look carefully.


KRAUTROCK!
Thursday 14th July from 8pm

Some comments from the night…

Great Prince tunes tonight courtesy of . How good did those tracks sound through the big speakers?!
