“Like a book club…only with albums.
A simple, but beautiful concept. MJ McArthur (Zoey Van Goey) asked a small group of his pals to
gather at The Laurieston – that mystical voodoo Glasgow boozer…that adored bar that defies all
reason and logic – and we would talk about a record, track by track, and see what happens.
They didn’t know each other. There were theatre people:, Playwriter Douglas Maxwell, Isobel
McArthur (actress and writer, the genius behind smash hit Pride and Prejudice Sort Of) and Cathy
Forde (acclaimed YA novelist and playwright) and Rhona NicDhughaill who works for Gaelic arts
company Theatre Gu Leor, as well as being an old band buddy of MJ’s from their student days. Peter
Geoghegan, award-winning firebrand political journalist and writer of the wonderful Democracy For
Sale was there. And lastly – and slightly freaking them out on that very first night – were two actual
Delgados: Emma Pollock and Paul Savage.
And then…MJ had songs. MJ always has songs. And he started to wonder if this particular group of
humans could, as well as talk about an album, make an album? For the musicians I don’t suppose
that was a particularly weird notion, but for the rest of the band it was quite a leap. However, MJ
was adamant…let Album Club become ALBUM CLUB. The Band!
