London Calling

As Stu and Lucy were leaving and moving to London the next day, it seemed fitting that we used January’s Record Club to mark their move, and we thought why not do that with a ‘London’ theme. Both have been instrumental in getting Record Club going, so for that, and many other reasons, we’re sad to see then go.

Still we had a good time, kicking the evening off with the Clash’s London Calling in it’s entirety. (Yep, a whole double album!)

Unhalfbricking got a nice introduction from Stu – we’re still not sure if we played his mum’s copy, his dad’s copy, or one his dad got by nefarious means.

Various London themed singles and album tracks filled out the night. A bit of Madness, a bit of punk, some Motorhead live at Hammersmith, etc

Abbey Road by the Beatles was the last album of the night, with an original copy from Stu’s mum getting an outing. This was the record she bought with her first hi-fi because ‘it had good bass’.

A few singles later, (and some dancing – yeah, I know!) we closed the night with West End Girls by the Pet Shop Boys.

Good fun.
