Jubilympics!

Sandwiched between the year defining events of 2012, the Jubilee and the Olympics, July’s event had a Jubilympics theme.

Here’s what YOU did…

You picked out some records that were released in either a Jubilee and/or Olympicyear, and that you wanted to hear at the July Record Club.

So WE selected some of them for the vote.

So YOU voted and you chose the records below.

Again it was a lovely intimate night, with record talk, nostalgia, good company and a fine bar (even if we were a bit more disorganised than usual).

Lovely to see both new and returning faces. Thanks to Daz for the photos

If you have ideas for future events tweet, or email us.

At last a Jubilee record. God save the Queen!

Like many albums you think you know, for some of us this was the first time of hearing it all the way through. Intersting to hear it 35 years on, and trying to work out what all the fuss was about back then!

Seventeen Seconds

Seventeen Seconds - The Cure
Artist:

The Cure

Year:

1980

This was a big one for a few of us in our teenage years.

Winner of the Jubilympics vote, personally I was quite surprised. It had made it into the vote on a whim and went on to win it.

 

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Ziggy Stardust - David Bowie
Artist:

David Bowie

Year:

1972

A popular choice that came second in theJubilimpics poll.

The instructions on the sleave read “Play at maximum volume” so we did. (Well obviously that would have been too loud – but it did sound good cranked up a bit!)
