CLASSIC ALBUM CLUB: TROUT MASK REPLICA

CLASSIC ALBUM CLUB: TROUT MASK REPLICA

7th October 2012


CAPTAIN BEEFHEART & HIS MAGIC BAND: TROUT MASK REPLICA (1969)

Presented by Colchester Arts Centre Director Anthony Roberts.

Welcome to the first of Colchester Arts Centre's new Classic Album Club - a monthly informal listening session to some of the greatest and most artistically significant album releases of all time!

Each month a curator presents an album which we'll listen to from start to finish (remember that?) in an informal atmosphere… there's also the chance to share your thoughts with others after the session, and the bar will be open serving the usual array of beverages, as well as Mick the Hippy's legendary veggie chilli (much admired by visiting bands for over 30 years!).

We will be listening to everything on vinyl, because as we all know, VINYL SOUNDS BETTER.

To kick off we will be giving Don Van Vliet's (aka Captain Beefheart) 1969 masterpiece a spin - a work of obsessive genius that blew apart the possibilities for rock and roll and continues to polarise opinion to this day. It's an office favourite - one of those records that seems to get better and better with every listen.

We would also welcome any suggestions for the third club of the series on Sunday 2nd December - please email Stafford via staff@colchesterartscentre.com

Admission £2
Doors open 2pm, session starts 2.30pm.
