November 33rpm

Here’s the details for the next 33rpm. Picking four was a nigh-on impossible task, based on the strength of the long list:

Gorillaz – Gorillaz
Spiritualized  – Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space
Caribou – Our love

As usual, we’ll be upstairs at Retro Bar, just off The Strand from 7pm on Wednesday November the 5th.

You can see who you’ll be rubbing shoulders with on the Facebook and Meetup pages.

The four albums are on the Spotify page too. See you then!


October 33rpm – The long list

October’s 33rpm was a bobby dazzler. I could put some waffle up here about how much fun it was, but I’ll let the long list of albums do the legwork. Picking four was torture…

Laura Marling: Alas, I cannot swim

Sia: We are born

Lights Out Asia: Hy-Brasil

Dee-Lite: World Clique

The Duke Spirit: Cuts across the land

The Vaccines: What did you expect from The Vaccines?

Spiritualized: Ladies and gentleman we are floating in space

Gorrilaz: Gorillaz

Midlake: The trials of Van Occupanther

Caribou: Our love

October 33rpm

Four more albums for you to sink your ears into. The long list is in the previous post on this website, but the final four are as follows:

Kate Bush – Hounds of Love
The Prodigy – Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
John Wizards – John Wizards
Dixie Chicks – Top of the World Tour Live

We’ll be upstairs at Retro Bar, just off The Strand from 7pm on Thursday October the 9th.

Have a look at who else is going on the Facebook and Meetup pages, plus sign up to the Spotify page, where we’ve done the album hunting for you. See you then!


September 33rpm roundup

Another top evening of chatting about albums. Conversation literally zig-zagged from ABBA to ZZ top, with lots of laughing (and pints) in between.

This website aims to let people know about future meetings, rather than ramble on about past ones. That said, we thought it’d be good to stick up a picture, to let those who haven’t been before know 33rpm really is a bona fide event.

As well as suggesting an album for next month, 33rpm newbie Yvonne also had a great idea: from now on, the long list of suggested albums is going to be popped on here too, for all to see. So here you go:

The Beatles – Magical Mystery Tour
Prodigy – Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned
Dan Le Sac Vs. Scroobius Pip – The Logic of Chance
Dixie Chicks – Top of the World Tour Live
Kate Bush – Hounds of Love
Laura Mvula with Metropole Orkest at Abbey Road
The Waifs – Up All Night
Jimmie Spheeris – Isle of View
Sleaford Mods – Chubbed Up
John Wizards – John Wizards

September 33rpm

The August 33rpm threw out a load of great albums, but we narrowed the September 33rpm down to:

Trouble in Paradise – La Roux
Slint – Spiderland
‘Her’ Original Soundtrack – Arcade Fire
Raw Like Sushi – Neneh Cherry

Come along! We’ll be upstairs at Retro Bar (just off The Strand) from 7pm on Wednesday the 10th September.

Join the Facebook group, to see who else is going.

Listen on the Spotify page (those albums we could find).

Remember –  it’s not a club for ‘musos’. Even the people who started 33rpm know virtually bugger all about music, so don’t worry your night will be stuffed full of music snobs. If you don’t like all of the albums, brilliant! It’ll make the conversation all the more interesting. See you then.
