A Hi Fidelity Vinyl Experience

The next AudioCollective event will feature Portishead’s Dummy on Saturday 18th November at The Swan.

Dummy is the debut studio album by English electronic band Portishead. It was released on 22 August 1994, by Go! Beat Records. The album received critical acclaim, winning the 1995 Mercury Music Prize. It is often credited with popularising the trip hop genre, and is frequently cited in lists of the best albums of the 1990s. Although it achieved only modest chart success overseas, it peaked at number 2 on the UK Album Chart, and saw two of its three singles reach number 13. The album was certified gold in 1997 and has sold two million copies in Europe. The album was certified double platinum in the UK in 1996, for sales exceeding 600,000 copies. It had sold 825,000 copies in the United Kingdom as of September 2011.

The album will be played on new equipment supplied by the AC crew (we’ll be testing out our new high fidelity TIDAL streamer) and also include discussion (not too heavy!) video footage (of the performer) and a chance to bring along and play your own related vinyl.

Each month we’ll be giving away a fresh copy of the vinyl in our free to enter raffle too – how foolish is that!


We will be revealing our new loyalty pricing scheme which from the New Year will allow loyal fans of the AC nights to attend 4 events for the price of three! You’ll still be able to use your membership tickets and discounted tickets offer until they expire.
