Home Sweet Home – Saturday 1st December

It’s that time of year again, when you and more than a million others race Chris Rea in a bid to get to that mystical of places, Home.

But before you brave the roads, rails or towpaths, join The Record Club in our own front room to enjoy an evening of vinyl, listening to and playing songs about home, family and everything in between. And as it’s December, the odd Christmas song wouldn’t be frowned upon. Tis the season to be jolly after all. To get you going, we’ll be playing The Family by Satchel in its entirety, but we’re sure Sly will bring his Family Stone, John Lennon will bring his Mother and Depeche Mode will come Home.

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!

 

7 x 7 x 7 – Saturday 7th July 2018

7X7X7_18_RC

We don’t usually need an excuse to repeat some of our most popular nights and looking at the date of this one we knew we couldn’t let it go by.

Waaaay back in November 2016 we held a 7′ singles only night. Seven people playing seven 7″ singles each. 49 singles. We called in 7×7 and it was great.

So, as our next event falls on the 7th July (7/7) we thought it high time to do the night again. Perhaps we should have called it 7x7x7x7x7…?

To keep things fair only those who didn’t take part last time were allowed to step up for this one and it’s great to see some of our more recent Record Clubbers offering to take part.

Here are our Magnificent Seven for 7x7x7…

8.00pm Bart

8.30pm Noel

9.00pm Paul

9.30pm Ant

10.00pm Wendy

10.30pm Tony

11.00pm Anne-Marie

11.30pm Err… The End

Why not come and join us on 7th July. We start at 8pm. We finish 49 singles later at 11.30pm. It’s free entry upstairs at the Triangle (47 Bradford Rd, Shipley) where you can enjoy their extensive bar (cash & card) and we usually provide a few Indian snacks to enjoy along the way.

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

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 19.54.40

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.

Punk’s Not Dead – Saturday 3rd February 2018

Punk1_RC

“The Record Club believe that Punk’s Not Dead and we want you to come and share your memories and records with us.”

When the Sex Pistols collapsed on that fateful tour of the USA in 1978, some proclaimed that Punk was dead. But their brief riot of recordings and gigs was just a blink of the eye in the storm that Punk would eventually become.

The changes in fashion and taste would see the advent of New Wave, Post Punk, Powerpop and other labels dreamt up by the journos of Sounds and NME. The music had changed forever…
