Rating * * * * * – Liverpool Sound and Vision
Having sold out across St. Luke’s Bombed Out Church and The Shipping Forecast in its debut year, Liverpool Calling is growing with more bands and venues in 2014.
The festival made a huge impression in 2013 with its impressive array of well established acts mixed with the finest new talent around. 2014 promises to build upon these sturdy foundations to create a truly special event for the city to cherish.
Acts announced already include; The Rifles, Twisted Wheel, Dexters, D/RU/G/S, The Rag n’ Bone Man, The Mono LP’s, GhostChant, The Jackobins, KZM, Southbound Attic Band, Low Winter SunRufus Hok, Michael Bennett, Detuned Radio, Kusanagi, Polymath, Cleft, Sheepy, Enamel Animal, Mike Markey, SuperSprite, Stereo Electric Mistress, Gold Jacks & Filter Distortion
Heading the bill at The Kazimier are everyone’s favourite mod-revivalists, The Rifles. Having released their fourth and highest charting album ‘None the Wiser’ back in January, The Rifles are still rolling as strong as ever since their 2006 debut. Championed by a whole host of people including king of the mods himself, Paul Weller, The Rifles are bound to thrill audience at Liverpool Calling.
To make sure the rock keeps rolling, Twisted Wheel also join the fray. After a recent tour including sell-out shows in Manchester’s Gorilla venue and high expectations of a new album on the horizon, Twisted Wheel are poised for a full on assault on your musical landscape.
Taking Liverpool Calling right through to the early hours will be a host of the finest dance acts around at Korova, led by D\R\U/G/S one of Manchester’s finest purveyors of encapsulating beats.
