    Malcolm Bruce Q&A and solo acoustic performance.

    Malcolm will perform songs from his upcoming release through Pledge Music.

    And then all over the road to the best pub in Crouch End, The Harringay Arms.

    From the beginning of his life, Malcolm was immersed in music. As a teenager he attended the Guildhall School of Music to study composition and has been performing professionally since the age of 16.

    Malcolm has worked with a multitude of musicians over the years. Early in his career, work included Bill Ward's (Black Sabbath) record 'Ward 1' featuring Ozzy Osbourne. He has recorded with Dick Heckstall-Smith, and Brand X featuring Percy Jones, John Goodsall and Pierre Moerlan.

    Malcolm has performed with his father off and on over the years, and has appeared on several of Jack's albums, most recently 'Shadows in the Air' (2001) and 'More Jack than God' (2003) both recorded in NYC (featuring performances by Eric Clapton, Dr. John, & Horacio Hernandez)

  • Record Store Day 2013

    Posted on 2013/04/19 by Mark

    Record Store Day

    Tomorrow, Saturday the 20th of April is Record Store Day 2013.

    Not only will we have FREE BISCUITS as in previous years but we'll also have FREE BADGES and GUEST DEEJAYS to edutain whilst you get your browz on.

    Yes indeed, we've a crack team of vinyl junkies assembled to (metaphorically) whistle while we work. Bob Stanley of Saint Etienne and music enthusiasm fame, will be kicking things off at 12 noon. He'll hand over to magnetic tape archeologist, Jonny Trunk of Trunk label fame, at 1pm. After that, around half two, we'll have former Rocker in Chief of the Times and general General of music journalism, Pete Paphides. He might be playing records exclusively sourced from our pound bin. Not sure. Next up on the Murphy Meteor (pictured below) is Liam Large of the Jukebox Jam night and record label. To finish things off, when the staff are on their last legs, we'll let one of them, Duke Murphy no less, play some of his own records.

    The Murphy Meteor

    Should be A GREAT DAY OF RECORD SHOPPPING.

    Oh, the EXCLUSIVE RELEASES? Yeah, we've got somes of those...

    Here's the full list of what we have received. We'll have all of it in our Essex Road shop and very much almost all of it in our Crouch End store, only missing the things we got a paltry 1 of (They're mostly pretty niche).

    10am opening.

    Without further ado.

  • Women Make Noise - instore book reading!

    Posted on 2013/03/23 by Ossie

    wmn

    "Women Make Noise : Girl Bands From Motown To Modern" is an amazing new book edited by Julia Downes that excavates the hidden legacies of all-girl bands.

    We are pleased to host an event here at Flashback Records at which three of the authors, Victoria Yeulet, Rhian Jones, and Bryony Beynon will read chapters.

    from 7pm - 9pm on FRIDAY 29th MARCH

    This is a FREE event open to all.

    There will be refreshment, alcoholic & non-alcholic & free.

    Between the readings there will be a all-girl music playlist and of course we will keep the shop open for business or non-business.

    Really excited for this event (a little different to our normal in-store performances) at which you might find some inspiration or some questions to raise - I'm sure the authors will encourage discussion.

    Flashback, 50 Essex Road, London N1 8LR

    After the event, our Murph will be round The Mucky Pup (Queen's Head St) playing all-girl-band-vinyl for the rest of the night. SWELL.
