A Vinyl Pilgrimage

With Gary Cavenagh’s slot moving to April, we subbed in Record Club regular, Bill, to bring us a fine evening of vinyl music.

Bill said, “To give the American indie a whirl you can’t go far wrong with Come on Pilgrim by the Pixies, which is IMHO by far their best record, and at only 8 songs not too long. My favourite R.E.M. album is Murmur, which does stand up to being played right through, and conveniently contains a song called Pilgrimage – starting to see an emerging theme here…”

He also selected 3 other albums from Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, and The Stone Roses, to be put to the vote for the final album of the night. Revovler came out on top, but we managed to slip in some tracks from the other albums as well.

Great to have a few tracks from those people had brought along as well, includingRock Lobster, and tracks from Zounds, The Cure, DJ Shadow, Husker Du,Curve, and many more.
