Monorail at The Glad Cafe

Dorothy Max, Adele Bertei, Ribbon Stage events

We’re really happy to be teaming up with one of our favourite places in Glasgow, The Glad Cafe in the southside,  for a series of events which starts this Thursday with Dorothy Max presenting her brilliant 69 Exhibition Road book. She’s going to be in conversation with Becky Marshall and JD Twitch. There will also be a preview of the Rema-Rema film, What You Could Not Visualise. This is a particular thrill for myself (SP) and Michael as we are hardcore fans of her I Confess / Softness 45. Tickets are going fast for this.

On Saturday (27th) we have Adele Bertei presenting her Twist: An American Girl memoir. This is a riveting wild ride of a book taking in the 1970s / 80s Queer NY scene, no wave and the first incarnation of ZE Records. Fittingly the book is published by ZE, now relaunched as a book imprint. She will be in conversation with our pal, David Keenan. No wave / ZE set from Shopping’s Andrew Milk and Ray Aggs. Now that IS a Saturday night.

Finally, one of our great lockdown finds, Ribbon Stage, on their first UK visit, will be blasting the place out with their winning mix of Shop Assistants Shangri-las, Ramones style pop bedlam. This is definitely not to be missed. Support from the always amazing R. Aggs (Sacred Paws, Shopping, Trash Kit) and new contenders, Former Champ.

Camera Obscura, welcome home.

Seminal early works, Monorail Exclusive colour vinyl editions.

At our heart, we’re a community record store. Our community isn’t constrained to Glasgow – if you’re reading this, you’re part of it, wherever you are. We are, though, very proud to be from Glasgow and are proud of the music heritage we’re part of.

Camera Obscura and the narratives that populate their records are woven into the city’s tapestry. They’re also our friends and customers as well as talented storytellers and musicians. The band’s earlier discography has been out of print for some time so it’s with a great deal of pride that we were able to partner with the group’s Spanish label Elefant to present these two earlier records that propelled them into the affection of people worldwide. 

Underachievers Please Try Harder and Let’s Get Out Of This Country have been repressed by Elefant and we are delighted to have both albums on Monorail Exclusive colours. Both titles are limited to 500 each.
