On 28th September we curated The Record Club, a monthly gathering of vinyl enthusiasts in Shipley, West Yorkshire.  We performed a short acoustic set, but the main purpose of the evening was for each of us to play some of our own favourite records.  Some of the records we played have inspired us in our music, but some were simply records that we love.  We didn’t keep a full list of which records we played, but this Spotify playlist has most of them:

If you’re not a Spotify user, but you want to know what we played, here’s the list:

Paul Simon – ‘Diamonds on the Soles of her Shoes’ (Graceland)
