Classic Album Sundays Classic Album Sundays Sydney presents Jane’s Addiction ‘Nothing’s Shocking’

Formed in Los Angeles in the mid-80s, Jane’s Addiction set a standard for driving, passionate and sonically crushing alternative rock before the term was even coined. They were flamboyant and provocative, with an equal interest in visual art, fashion, and 70s era guitar riffs.

Like most great bands, it was not a single member whose contribution was greater: Perry Farrell’s unique voice and lyrics, Dave Navarro’s guitar riffs and wailing leads, Eric Avery’s sturdy basslines, and one of rock’s greatest and most powerful drummers, Stephen Perkins. Nothing’s Shocking remains one of the most important alternative albums of all time.

Join us to experience this album as never before.

The album is available to buy here.

Classic Album Sundays Classic Album Sundays Launches in Manchester

Classic Album Sundays are thrilled to announce that new bar Folk and Soul will host our first sessions in the North West, starting with Public Enemy’s seminal It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. 

From 22nd July Classic Album Sundays, the world’s most popular album listening experience, will finally arrive in the musical heartlands of Manchester, taking the number of satellites around the world to 15 satellites over 4 continents, including London, New York, Chicago, Miami and Berlin.  Tickets for this first session cost just £3 and can be purchased in advance on Skiddle here.

Folk and Soul will be the ideal venue for the evening: a brand new vegan venture, slap bang in the middle of the Northern Quarter, from the team behind the beloved jazz bar, Matt and Phreds. Co-owner Matt Nickson has transformed the former Odd bar into a ‘plant-based café’, offering a huge range of vegan beers and wines, coupled with a hearty, healthy and constantly changing menu. Plans for a bespoke CAS tapas menu and album-themed cocktails are already afoot.

As with all CAS events, only the highest quality audio will do. So we’re delighted to be partnering with Audiocounsel, a small independent Hi-Fi shop, based in Saddleworth and run by three people with a genuine passion for music.

Audiocounsel will be providing different audio combinations per session to showcase their kit with their wealth of expertise: audiophilia defined.

The event starts at 5pm with a short talk by Manchester music producer Johnny Hay and then the album is listened to in its entirety before the evening finishes with a brief Q&A, wrapping up by 8pm

Peckish Classic Album Sunday guests can enjoy any item off the menu before the kitchen closes at 5pm.

CAS Manchester will be co-curated by a team of four music-lovers living in Manchester.

Colleen Murphy, Classic Album Sundays founder, added:

Ever since I was a kid growing up in the ‘burbs of Boston, I have admired the music coming out of Manchester. I was a massive Smiths fan and danced onstage at the Meat is Murder tour at their famed gig in Boston,, witnessed the riot at the end of the New Order show in the same venue and had a Joy Division poster stuck on the ceiling above my bed. In my mind, Manchester was one of the coolest cities on the planet! Since moving to the UK nearly 20 years ago, I have made multiple trips to the Rainy City to DJ and found that Manchester is even cooler than I had imagined. I’m ‘chuffed to bits’ that Classic Album Sundays is making its debut in one of the best music cities in the UK and thank you all for listening!”

Full details about the event can be found here.

Classic Album Sundays Classic Album Sundays on Worldwide FM: Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back

This edition focuses on ‘It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back’, the second studio album by American hip hop group Public Enemy, noted for its strong social commentary.

Released on Def Jam Recordings and recorded in 1987 at Chung King Studios, A Nation of Millions was critically lauded upon release for its high production values and the political and social fluency of its lyrics, particularly of lead MC Chuck D. The record is still regarded as one of the best and most important albums of all time.

It will be aired at 12pm and 6pm GMT on Sunday 15th July 2018 here.

Classic Album Sundays Classic Album Sundays London presents Sigur Rós ‘Ágætis byrjun’

“We are simply gonna change music forever, and the way people think about music. And don’t think we can’t do it, we will.” – Sigur Ros

A bold statement on their website at the time of Ágætis byrjun’s release gave a direct insight into Sigur Ros’ mind at the time. To call then “post-rock” would be an insult; piano, flutes, tremolo, horns, feedback, and inhuman sounding vocal performances create a sound that cannot really be defined by time or genre.

Ágætis byrjun is stand alone record that probably would never have been made in trend-obsessed cities such as London and New York, it’s stark sound is reminisent in direction of Iceland’s biggest musical export Björk. Neither have been confined by genre or rules and have made unique music at a time where it appears increasingly difficult to do so.

The album is available to purchase here.
