Triphazard, Statement Haircut, Johnny Sands, Sound and Fury: Camp and Furnace, Liverpool


Triphazard and a stellar supporting cast light up Camp and Furnace, Getintothis’ Julian Roberts soaks up the evening.

Triphazard‘s new EP Rushing Roulette is the culmination of a year’s hard work and saw the Liverpool electro outfit collaborate with US producer Matthew Holmes.
And as a keen fan of the band since their early days in 2006, we were eagerly looking forward to their record launch at Camp & Furnace. We were not to be disappointed.
First to take to the stage was Liverpool music mainstay, Johnny Sands, who as many readers will know runs a regular Tuesday open mic session at Leaf on Bold Street.
His unique style of playing and vocal ability is something not to be missed, and Getintothis never tires of hearing him play. Using an interesting backline and switching from acoustic to electric guitar and back again, he supplied the evening with a great set opener.
Statement Haircut showcased a unique blend of visual art, catchy synths and clever programming. Coupled with the setting of Camp and Furnace – the ideal venue for such an outfit – they kept the audience gripped by fine musicianship.
Headliners Triphazard immediately had the audience in the palm of their hand. Picking up the bass guitar, singer Stef Stokes grabbed our attention further, with new track Ribcage, showcasing the band’s impressive talent and stage presence.
Catching up with Stef after the gig, she said: ‘The whole night was amazing. We were truly bowled over with how many people came down to support us and celebrate the launch of our EP. From the supporting acts to the visuals artists, every single person involved contributed to making this without a doubt the best show we have played to date.
