Author, historian and “former vocalist with legendary local rock gods Phobia”, Gary Cavanagh hosted our April event.
His book, Noise of the Valleys, is all about Bradford’s music history between the years of 1976 and 1987.
But for this event he played 3 records from the Munich based ECM label. With 3 albums at his disposal he chose to play albums by the following artists:
With the exception of one or two people, the label and some of the artists were all new to most of us. Great to see some ECM, (and other vinyl) carried through the door by people coming to the event.
As usual the Record Club evenings are as much about good conversation, good company, and a good bar, as it is about the music. I think it’s fair to say that the music was loved by some, tolerated by others, but universally discussed and debated by everyone.
