Album Club are a band of creatives that initially gathered to discuss music together in The Laurieston, an iconic Glasgow bar in 2019. The group was started by MJ McCarthy who brought friends together to dissect albums, track by track over drinks. The gathering then morphed into something more, and the band was born over lockdown in 2020. Although not all members were musicians, an album emerged, something beautiful created in defiance of adversity. The self-titled debut LP is an album of friendship and community, crafted by a group of people brought together by a love of music.
Album Club - the band and the record - features the talents of MJ McCarthy (Zoey Van Goey) Paul Savage (The Delgados) Adam Scott (Starry Skies) Rhona Dougall and a whole feast of other singers and contributors including the likes of Emma Pollock, Douglas Maxwell and Peter Geoghegan.
