Vinyl on Wednesdays


We are currently taking a bit of a break from supplying the sounds systems for the VoW Classic Album events, but we can highly recommend attending them, they are generally held on the second Wednesday of the month and are excellent value, with fascinating insights into classic albums, often with music professionals including journalists, engineers or musicians providing talks, all amongst like minded music fans.


We hope to be involved with some occasional events in the future as time permits, so please do check back here regularly.

Previous events:

April 10th 2019: Motorhead No Sleep ‘Til Hammersmith

The system used featured a Rega PL6, Rega Ania cartridge,Fono MC phono stage, Exposure 3010 amplifier and Heco Elementa 700 loudspeakers.

March 13th 2019: New York Night!

          

This night was a double header of self titled LPs from bands Suicide and the Ramones, with their producer Craig Leon (pictured above left), discussing the discovery of these groups and their recording process. Rare white label LPs were played, and the excellent mono version of the Ramones LP was used (which was never released at the time). It was a fascinating insight into this period of NYC music history.

February 2019: The Orb - U.F.Orb LP

             

Co-founder of The Orb, Alex Paterson (pictured to the right of Kris Needs, above) talked about the early years of The Orb, including the experience of ‘breaking’ Top of the Pops by playing chess during their appearance which forced the producers to change their policy on what was considered a performance, through to explaining the background of various samples used - including a fascinating insight that one hi-hat sample was actually an elephant throwing sand over its back which was recorded in India by Alex himself, and of course it wouldn’t have been complete without discussing the Rickie Lee Jones sample that was fundamental to Little Fluffy Clouds.


The system used included a Michell Gyro SE, Rega RB220 and Audio Note IQ2 front end, Croft 25R and Series 7R pre power amplifier and Avantgarde Zero loudspeakers.

January 2019: Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet LP

December 2018: Beastie Boys - Licensed to Ill LP

November 2018: David Bowie - Ziggy Stardust LP

            

A packed room saw Kris Needs and Rick Pearce discuss the importance of Ziggy Stardust, both musically and culturally on Aylesbury itself, as the Ziggy persona was revealed for the very first time in the town at the Friars Music Club. Personal anecdotes about David Bowie and even time spent running the fan club provided fascinating insights into this era of his music.
