Record Club Returns

Didn’t we have a loverly time the evening we spent at record club? It was great to see some new faces down there, and, of course, the familiar ones as well.

We built the night based on the suggestions we’d recieved on our nominate page. These included a bit of psychedelic space rock from Gong (a very well played version of the record was supplied by Paul, a gift from “Bagnall”…), some late-eighties indy pop foolery from the Pixies, a tribute to REM in the form of Fables of the Reconstruction, and just ‘cos it’s 20yrs old we ended with Nevermind.

The twittersphere was alive to the sound of Record Club last night, check@therecordclub on twitter for more. Or read our blog.
And, don’t just take our word for it, read the Culture Vulture review.

Camembert Electrique - Gong
Artist:

Gong

Year:

1971

A popular suggestion in our nominate section. We played a much loved, muched played version, so there were a few crackles, but it was an interesting listen.

Fables of the Reconstruction

R.E.M: Fables of the Reconstruction
Artist:

R.E.M

Year:

1985

As R.E.M anounced they were splitting up just days before Record Club, the punters took matters into their own hands (and why not!) and turned up armed with their R.E.M vinyl. A quick round of UN style diplomacy led us to give Fables of the Reconstruction an airing. Arguably, a little less well known than much of thier work, as it was only their third album, it was an interesting listen.

Nevermind

Nirvana: Nevermind
Artist:

Nirvana

Year:

1981

Well there was just a little bit of hype around this album during September 2011, as it became 20 years old.

Rather than invest in the 4CD/DVD collectors edition box set, why not have a listen to it on vinyl instead? It was chosen as a late addition to the September event and got squeezed in as a bonus 4th album on the night.

Surfer Rosa

Pixies: Surfer Rosa
Artist:

Pixies

Year:

1988

The first full length album by the Pixies got the vote over Doolittle on the night of the Record Club event. The whole of their back catalogue was on offer, thanks to Rob who brought it along.

This is an album that many people ended up getting on CD as it came bundled with another record, Come on Pilgrim, at the time. So we put the theory to the test that the vinyl sounds much better than the CD versions.
