Shut up and take our money.
In February 1977, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac was born after a lengthy labour of love. In honour of that, there is a series of birthday parties in San Francisco, Los Angeles, NYC and even Liverpool to celebrate one of the greatest albums of all time. You are cordially invited to attend the 40th birthday Rumours Rave with remixes, edits and originals from Rumours and more from the band and solo projects with DJs on July 8th at Constellations.
How could they better the perfect album? They simply cannot, but they will have fun re-framing it for the dance floor. If you haven’t heard of our project before then have a listen to what it’s all about here. The dress code for the evening is simply ‘1977’ or your best celebratory sparkles.
Since 2012, the guys and girls behind this have been hosting their tunnel-visioned event and celebrating the extensive back catalogue of Fleetwood Mac. With a curated and created assortment of remixes and edits they’ve shared their passion with like-minded hedonists all over the world. They’ve twirled in the mud at Glastonbury and tipped their top hat to the dust at Burning Man.
What is it about Fleetwood Mac that is so special to you?
An alchemy of Californian folk-rock harmonies with a hint of twang blending with English blues revivalists who’d been around the block and lost many a lead guitarist on the way. Ambition, talent and a little space for some magic to forge an unbroken chain between a creative alliance of men and women. Unlike many bands in the 70’s and today, it’s important to acknowledge the female narrative of this band. This is authentic emotional storytelling from many individual perspectives that breathes authenticity and defies nostalgia.
We’ve always felt that there is so much more to Fleetwood Mac than Rumours. To us it’s just one of the many great albums they have produced, and often the ‘gateway’ drug for a new fan. What is undeniable is that you can play any song from this album and there will be applause. It is perfectly formed but not over-produced, even its cover design by Herbert Worthington is an example of classic elegance. The only complaint from us is that Silver Springs couldn’t also fit within its lacquer grooves…(sigh).
What can we expect?
We cannot better this album or its songs, instead we dive deeper inside its sounds, nestle in its hidden whispers and dance our way through the working parts. For you Rumours, we lovingly collage a home-made birthday card of remixes in appreciation.
Tickets can be bought here. See you on the dance floor.
