From the moment it dropped, Boards of Canada's debut LP Music Has the Right to Children was considered a classic and a game-changer. Now in its 20th anniversary year, it only looms larger as one of the greatest electronic albums of all time. On Sunday November 18, Classic Album Sundays brings it to you in full, on vinyl and in audiophile hi-fi.
With its deep bassy trip-hop beats, mindwarping samples, and achingly gorgeous analogue synths invoking the Scottish countryside and themes of childhood and nostalgia, MHTRTC never stops revealing new sonic treasures, and never gets old. It's going to be a trip on our vintage soundsystem in our intimate room at The World Bar!
Tickets are $15 in advance at Eventbrite. Book now: https://www.eventbrite.co.nz/e/classic-album-sundays-boards-of-canada-music-has-the-right-to-children-tickets-51751050786

What is Classic Album Sundays?
Classic Album Sundays is the world's most popular record club. CAS allows listeners to fully immerse themselves in beloved and historically significant albums, presenting the stories behind the music and an uninterrupted replay on vinyl on an audiophile hi-fi sound system (with phones switched off and no conversation). People learn about the history and cultural context of the album and then hear things in the music that they might have never heard before. The events are mainly attended by non-audiophiles who are sometimes moved to tears when they hear the details of their favourite recordings.
CAS currently holds regular classic-album listening sessions in London, New York, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Oslo and many more cities. As it has touched upon a cultural nerve with its mission of challenging the way we listen to music in the 21st century, CAS has received amazing coverage in BBC Breakfast TV, The Guardian, Elle Magazine, NME, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and more.
