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…
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.

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!
“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…

For our first event of 2018 we are doubling the fun with the theme of duos. Rob and Noel have both chosen a couple of albums, of which they will play just one side of each one to leave plenty of time for others to play their own choices in our popular free play section. Here is what Rob and Noel have chosen:

The next Record Club looks back at the records that have rocked your world in 2017.
What are your favourite albums or tracks of the year? Which artists did you discover? Who did you see live this year.
And don’t restrict yourself to just “new” stuff. Perhaps you discovered a classic album for the first time. Or finally got round to listening to (and loving) that band that everyone has been banging on about for years.
If you have some vinyl which meets any of the above criteria, then come and play it at the last Record Club event of 2017.
The review of the year starts at 8pm at The Triangle (47 Bradford Rd, Shipley), our new home and purveyors of beer, art and curiosities.
See you there!
Come and join us for a night of Northern Soul at The Triangle – 47 Bradford Road, Shipley BD18 3DS.
<Please note our new date for this event – FRIDAY 3rd November – not Saturday as previously advertised.>
Anne-Marie has seized control of the decks for this one, promising a scintillating set of dancfloor classics.
But she’ll leave some space during the evening for you to play some of your own Northern Soul or NS – inspired tracks, so make sure you bring some vinyl.
We’ll be set up and ready to go by 8pm. Top tunes, a fine selection of drinks and some excellent company. What a way to start the weekend!
After several successful years in the Kirkgate Centre (many thanks again guys!), Record Club is changing venues to The Triangle with our first regular evening on Saturday 7th October from 8pm.
It’s open to all with no charge and we were looking for a suitably rousing theme to kick us off. Well, the nights are drawing in and leaves are beginning to fall to the ground, so it must be autumn and that can only mean… Oktoberfest!

On Saturday 9th September Record Club is hoping to repeat the storming success of the 2016 Saltaire Festival Pop Ups with err.. some more in 2017! One long day, four venues, hundreds of records and hopefully good weather (no storms of course).
Our pop ups form part of the Festival’s first weekend Open Garden Trail and we can’t wait to be involved again. Loads of details about all the events taking place at Saltaire Festival between 8th and 17th September can be found by visiting their website, following their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, following the hashtag #SaltFest17 and by joining their mailing list.
So please come and join us and play some records at Edward St Bakery from 10am, Tambourine Coffee from 1pm, YardFest from 4.45pm and (our brand new permanent home from October) The Triangle from 6pm on Saturday 9th September. And bring some records!
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…?
