Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) – Saturday 3rd November 2018

DOTDead_RC

Each November all Mexico, and much of South America, celebrates Día de Muertos, the Day of the Dead when spirits walk among us. Families light candles in graveyards and welcome the spirits with their favourite foods. But it’s not gloomy…

Colours – Saturday 6th October 2018

Colours_RC

Colours, eh. Kind of important. Otherwise, how would we know when to stop, when to go, when your enemy has surrendered, when to get really cross (if you are a bull), when you are jealous… You get the picture.

The resurgence of vinyl in recent years has also seen ever more inventive ways to market it and coloured vinyl has been one such tactic. So our colours night will be dedicated not only to colours but coloured vinyl.

Screen Shot 2018-09-23 at 16.40.57And meeting the brief perfectly is Beck and his most recent album, Colors, which we will be playing in full and in at least two different colours (if you have a copy which isn’t in red or yellow, bring it along). The rest of the evening will be dedicated to records, songs and artists which you have brought along on vinyl and which meet the theme. And if they are on coloured vinyl then of course that’s even better!

Think Purple Rain, Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, Black Tie White Noise, Orange Crush, Blue Moon, Grey Day, Pink Sunshine, Green Onions, Red Box, Indigo Girls, Brown Eyed Girl, Yellow Magic Orchestra… you get the picture.

Don’t have any vinyl? Don’t worry, bringing records along to Record Club events is definitely not a pre-requisite. Lots of people come along just to listen or catch up with friends. Records or not, you are very welcome.

We start at 8pm upstairs at The Triangle, 47 Bradford Road, Shipley. It’s free to get in and there’s a cash & card bar downstairs with a choice of the finest beers known to mankind (this is not an idle boast). We’ll likely lay on a few Indian snacks too.

See you there!

 

Three of a Kind – 8pm Saturday 5th May 2018

Screen Shot 2018-04-26 at 20.28.39

Three. It’s the magic number apparently. After the roaring success of Three Little Letters in 2016 we now have Three of a Kind….

It’s simple. Pick three tunes (on vinyl) and bring them along to play on the night. Those three tunes must have something that links them. It might be in the lyrics, a shared performer, an event… anything really. But something which is guessable. Otherwise what’s the point, eh!?

No prizes. Just a bit of fun. And hopefully some very interesting and unexpected tunes. It sort of what Record Club is all about.

It’ll all happen upstairs at The Triangle at 47 Bradford Rd, Shipley from 8pm, where there will also be an excellent selection of drinks to purchase, some of Bradford’s finest Indian snacks to nibble (compliments of Record Club) and an entrance fee of precisely nought pee! Bargain! See you there…

Name On! Saturday 7th April 2018

This April come join the Record Club at The Triangle for an evening of songs named after people… all on lovely vinyl.

For the Beatles it was Michelle, for Dolly Parton it was Jolene, Simon and Garfunkel: Cecilia, Eminem: Stan, ABBA: Fernando and Chiquitita. Bruce Springsteen sang about Mary Queen of Arkansas, Rosalita,  Bobby Jean, The Ghost Of Tom Joad and both Harry and Mary’s Place – Bruce liked a name.

Here Come The Girls – Saturday 3rd March 2018

Girls_RC-2_small

In March it’s the annual International Women’s Day and on Saturday 3rd March Record Club joins in with “Here Come The Girls”, a night dedicated to female artists and female-led groups.

This will be a women-led event to be enjoyed by everyone and along with hearing some fine albums chosen by women from Record Club, as always there’ll be plenty of space for any women attending to play their own female artist choices on vinyl in the free play sections.

It’s free entry and The Triangle run a bar with a huge range of beers, wines and spirits available for purchase. Come and join upstairs at The Triangle in Shipley from 8pm. A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

Saltaire Record & Retro Fair 8th July 2017

Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 21.14.30

The Saltaire Record & Retro Fair is a great event which takes place three times a year in the UNESCO World Heritage Village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire. It’s Record Club’s “manor”.

Organisers Caroline and Julian from Rose & Brown are great supporters of Record Club so we were chuffed to be asked to provide the necessary “ambience” as a backdrop to the browsing, digging, perusing and purchasing at their next Record Fair.

We’ll be there from 10am on Saturday 8th July at the Caroline St Social Club in Saltaire. It’ll be battle of the DJs (in as much as two people stood next to each other playing music they probably both like can be described as “a battle”).

Do come down and support this great event, pick up a bargain, a long sought after piece of vinyl or nugget of pop culture ephemera. Chance are you won’t leave empty handed.

Oh and did we mention there’s a bar…?

Around The World – Saturday 24th June 2017

Around the world1

Before we take our summer break Record Club goes Around the World in June. As ever with our themes that’s a pretty loose brief. Get thinking albums, artists and songs with a worldly theme… Do you have any vinyl with a country in the artist’s name or in a song/album title? A continent? A topographical feature? Perhaps it’s travel related (it broadens the mind apparently)…? Maybe you have some music from an exotic or far off place – we know of one regular with an album of Hawaiian wedding music that we featured on one of the radio shows last year.

Whatever you can find then bring it along for an evening of global vinyl indulgence.

As well as enjoying an evening of eclectic treats, we’ll be saying farewell to our tenure at the Kirkgate Centre as we move to a new venue from the late summer (more news on that very soon). Paul and his team have hosted and supported us since the early days of Record Club over 6 years ago. That’s 58 events! 203 hours? And, give or take, about 3,000 tracks played. On those massive speakers! Thank you Paul and the Kirkgate Centre for all your support these past 6 years! We really appreciate it.

Ok, usual rules mostly apply. Doors open at 8pm, there’s a cash/card bar and some Indian snacks available. Entry donation this month is on a pay as you feel basis.

See you on 24th June!
