As Ballboy once sang Space is brilliant! It’s so vast above our heads, such a place to marvel, to be inspired by – and so silent.
Space is also something we see around us every day back on terra firma. It’s what’s immediately around us. It what’s in our heads.
The possibilities of space are limitless.
We would like to try and have a Record Club that covers that breadth, that marvel – and unlike space, people feel they can just go to it….

Andy has agreed to host the first event of 2015 and his (self imposed) brief was “no guitars”. Have a look at the list below to see how well he has stuck to it! The first two albums of the night are Andy’s choices and they are…

Three is the magic number, and so we celebrated three years of Record Club with tracks from our favourite albums over that time.

The Grand Depart of the Tour De France was just one week away when Record Club came around in June, so, like the rest of the world, wwe jumped on the bandwagon to create a playlist from the records brought along with a loose connection to the Tour De France, Yorkshire, cycling, etc.
We we’re not dissappointed as our punters were as broad or as obtuse as any Yorkshire folk should be. We had everything from the obvious – Pink Floyd: Bike, to the tenous – Echo and the Bunny Men: Killing Moon, and the inventive, All: Exercise.
Some great photos of the night were takien by Simon Sugden:
Full track listing will appear below soon.

We only played the 12″ of this – but it had to be done for the Tour De france night.
Record Store Day 2014 came and went, and some Record clubbers got up very early and grabbed their Record Store day bargains, while others trotted along later and took their pick of what was left, while others just didn’t bother at all!
We ended up with a “diverse evening’s entertainment ranging from Rammstein to Spacemen 3 to early Adam and the Ants to, umm, Baccara (it seemed like a good idea at the time!)” as one fella posted on Facebook.
Yes sir, we sure can boogie!
From the shoe gazing of Ride, through the melancholy of Radiohead, to the math rock of Foals; Oxford over the years has produced some cracking bands.
Join us on 29th March to discover the result of our Radiohead vote and to hear some Oxford inspired tunes, all of course on Vinyl for your listening pleasure.
David Craig is looking after this event. You can contact him via Twitter @David___Craig.
Vinyl record sales are at their highest levels for more than a decade. Boosted by events such as Record Store Day, vinyl records are having somewhat of a resurgence.
So, to try get away from an image of a few “old” blokes sat in a darkened room reminiscing about the good old days (not that there’s anything wrong with that), we thought it might be a good opportunity to embrace the new, and celebrate the continued success of our much loved format.
Heck, it might even be fun to listen to some new vinyl without years worth of scratches.
So with the help of Record Club regular, Andy, we restricted this event to vinyl people have bought since the start of record club in September 2010.
To kick start things Andy chose Restless Idylls by Tropic of Cancer (2013). The vote for the other albums to be played on the night, resulted in us hearing the latest fromMogwai and Neko Case.
In “Record club plays something from this year” shocker, it was great to hear Mogwai (again). This is their 8th studio album, and the winnner of the poll for our New Vinyl event.
Restless Idylls – Tropic Of Cancer
“Restless Idylls is the debut album by Tropic of Cancer.
It consists of eight new recordings, written and performed by Camella Lobo in Los Angeles, with additional production from Karl O’Connor (Regis) in New York and London. It marks ToC’s return to Blackest Ever Black two years after the three-track EP The Sorrow Of Two Blooms, the label’s third release and one if its most cherished. “
How one man manged to vote 18 times to get this record on our New Vinyl playlist I’ll never know, but I’m very glad he did.
