November’s 33rpm

Crazy times this month: not only a Thursday meet (bumped a day for lesbian speed dating), there are two albums in one slot too! Mental.

A quick note, as I’ve had emails: of course you don’t have to listen to all (indeed any) of the albums if you don’t have the time. Just come along for the chat if you like.

As ever, see you upstairs in Retro from 7.

1989 – Taylor Swift AND Ryan Adams (her album, his covers album)
Dare – The Human League
Evol – Sonic Youth
And She Closed Her Eyes – Stina Nordenstam

July’s 33rpm

Hello all,

Announcing this month’s foursome of albums. A proper mix (and surprisingly light on spangly pop). I’m really looking forward to this already. Feast your eyes on the list, get over to the Spotify page and hopefully see you upstairs in Retro in July.


Tricky – Maxinquaye
Nina Simone at Town Hall
Marilyn Manson – Mechanical Animals
Cocteau Twins – Heaven or Las Vegas
