Debut Albums

There’s nothing quite like a band’s debut album, so we dedicated an evening to this fine art.

The event was curated by Wil Oddsox, the man behind the very lovely Front Room Disco (3rd Saturday of the month at the Kirkgate Centre).

He decided that The Front Room Disco would choose one album (The Specials), and then he created a vote for a second album, which was won quite easily by Three Imaginary Boys.

The third was chosen on the night from the pile of records brought along by Record Clubbers, which was a task in itself. In the end we gave half a side to Morrissey and half a side to De La Soul.  and of course we played as amny tracks as we could from the other debuts that people brought to the event.

I think that means that only one of our featured albums was actually on either of these lists of debut albums:- the NME has its top 50 list, Rolling stone has its top 100 list

Not the first time we had heard from Morrissey, but the first time on his own. His debut solo album was chosen from the hundreds that turned up on the evening of our Debut Albums event. BUT we only had time for one side, as he had to share the space with De La Soul’s 3 Feet High and Rising.
