Music Director Marc Jones comments, “Liverpool has always had a small but very important underground music scene. In 1976 Eric’s opened its doors and punk exploded into life, thanks bands like the Clash, Ramones and Sex Pistols who all played Eric’s! In many ways Eric’s has been as influential to Liverpool as both the Cavern and Cream have been and out of this scene came a set of Liverpool bands that went on to dominate the 80’s…bands like Echo & the Bunnymen, Wah! Heat, Teardrop Explodes, OMD and Frankie Goes To Hollywood. It’s a great tradition that has been continued by the likes of the Lomax, Zanzibar, Evol and the much missed Korova. It’s a great story and one we will be telling at this year’s Liverpool International Music Festival through a unique live show demonstrating how it has redefined itself in terms of music, fashion and popular culture over 40 years!”

 

Unesco Co-ordinator Kev McManus says, “This is a real celebration of 40 years of music and counter culture in Liverpool. It will excite interest from music lovers from across the world. It is a particularly poignant event for me personally as my passion for music and my involvement in the music scene in the Liverpool music scene was ignited by attending a series of memorable gigs at Eric’s.

These two shows and the accompanying panel discussion are a tribute to the great music and memorable venues that have lit up the Liverpool music scene over the last 40 years. Places like Eric’s, the Warehouse, the Picket, Zanzibar, Kazimier, Korova, Planet X, and the bands that played these venues have played a vital role in ensuring that the Liverpool music scene has remainder so vibrant over the last forty years. 

The two nights showcase some of the best of the new Liverpool talent like The Sugarmen who have just signed to Warners. But I’m delighted that we have managed to secure Liverpool artists who were part of the original Eric’s scene in the shape of Ian Broudie, Pete Wylie, will sergeant as well as the likes of The Buzzcocks who played Eric’s many times.”

 

LIMF is an inherently different festival representing the latest chapter of an ever evolving global music city. Presenting its most ambitious and vibrant programme to date, the four days features a showcase of artists, music and projects that have and are redefining music and culture.
