Two worlds of Liverpool culture came together for the second time during Liverpool Sound City – and Getintothis organised an exclusive shot for Mark McNulty during our production of official Sound City magazine, The Liberator. Dave Machine reviews the subsequent show.
Together with a whole host of performers, artists, creatives, misfits and extremists, The Kazimier has become the place to see, hear, be, perform, believe in what you want to.
This is a place where dreams, imaginations and fantastical spectacular landslides have collided with the informal parties which welcome all but reject conformity. A place to be. A place to love. And a place to chrish.
The Kazimier is a place which Liverpool was crying out for, and this year Liverpool Sound City was very proud to be involved in. Wave Machines, together with Kazimier bro Venya Krutikov (one third of Dogshow and pictured centre by Mark McNulty), have brought a new found punk spirit, in the very essence of Liverpool Sound City, to this year’s festival. Viva La Kaz!
Review of Wave Machines:
by Dave Machine
After a year for their debut album to sink in to the Liverpool pop landscape, Wave Machines have found themselves on the receiving end of some well-deserved popularity.
The Kazimier seems to have filled up very quickly as the local quartet arrive on stage, for once without their trademark masks, with their leftfield pop gems equally managing to be lyrically engaging and rhythmically pleasing enough for there not to be a static body in the room.
Aside from a few festivals over the summer, they’re taking a break from performing to work on their next album. They’re one of Liverpool’s favourite bands, now make them yours.
