NOVEMBER’S RECORD CLUB: A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… in 10 Records – with Dr Peter Wadsworth

grc_strrawberry_nov2019

On Thursday 14th November, we’ll be exploring the amazing legacy of Strawberry Recording Studios, the Stockport-based studio founded by the future members of 10cc in 1967 and which played host to musicians of all kinds – from Neil Sedaka, Bay City Rollers and Paul McCartney to Buzzcocks, Joy Divison, The Ramones and St Winifred’s School Choir! Not forgetting 10cc themselves.

To take us through that story, we’ll be welcoming Strawberry Studios historian Dr Peter Wadsworth to Glossop Record Club for ‘A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… In 10 Records‘.

Peter was the driving force behind the excellent Strawberry exhibition at Stockport Museum in 2017, and with his PhD in the legendary studio, there is no better person to take us through its illustrious past, from its humble beginnings above a record shop to producing international hits by a staggering variety of artists, to its closure in the early 1990s.

Doors open at 8pm and the talk will begin at 8.30pm. See you there!

September’s Record Club: DOVES – Lost Souls

grcdovessept2019.jpg

Glossop Record Club returns on Thursday 12th September to play one of the finest albums by a Manchester band on vinyl and in full.

dovelostsoulsvinyl.jpg

Lost Souls, the debut album by Doves, was released in 2000, after a decade that saw them put out a handful of dancefloor classics under the name Sub Sub, slowly morphing into Doves in the late 90s amidst a fire that destroyed their studio and the loss of their mentor, Rob Gretton.

Alongside the album, we’ll also be playing a few tracks from their time as Sub Sub, plus collaborations with Bernard Sumner, Jane Weaver and Badly Drawn Boy.

Doors open at 8pm and the music starts at 8.30pm. See you there.

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.
