The press release reads:
LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF PSYCHEDELIA 2014
26th - 27th September @ Camp & Furnace
With the dust barely settled on 2013’s sell out event, the ‘Psych Fest’ organizers are already gazing into the future. GOAT will appear at the festival as part of 'Transmissions From The Outer Realms' a unique curation presented by Rocket Recordings, featuring the first ever UK shows for HILLS and LAY LLAMAS, plus appearances from TEETH OF THE SEA, ANTHROPROPHH and GNOD.
The festival was lauded in 2013 for its unique take on a throughly modern psychedelic condition. THE GUARDIAN declaring "Liverpool, the great psychedelic capital of Europe", as the festival established itself as a firm fixture in the cultural calendar, simultaneously providing the most progressive line-up and inclusive audience on the festival landscape.
Line-up so far:
TEETH OF THE SEA
LES BIG BYRD
SUDDEN DEATH OF STARS
ONE UNIQUE SIGNAL
NOTHING IS... DJ's
'Transmissions From The Outer Realms’ is a unique curation presented by Rocket Recordings. Including HILLS - this will be the iconic Gothenburg group’s first performance outside Scandinavia - and new Italian label signing LAY LLAMAS, who ply a ‘Goat meets Gnod’ brand of afro repetition, shoegaze fuzz and DFA'esque grooves. The aforementioned GNOD play trance inducing commune drone, full on fuzz driven post punk and danceable kraut noise repetition. The band have quickly become known as one of the best live bands in the UK and are joined on the bill by cinematic audioists TEETH OF THE SEA, who’s mix of kraut rock, techno, psych, disco and noise can be heard best on their recently released and critically acclaimed third album Master.
ANTHROPROPHH started off as a solo project by Paul Allen, the guitarist and principle songwriter for seminal cult psych rock band The Heads, but over the last 12 months has morphed into a full flung psych power trio. ‘Transmissions From The Outer Realms’ will feature each of the aforementioned bands alongside DJ collaborations - led by the ever-exploratory NOTHING IS DJs - a kaleidoscopic visual world and multitude of cosmic sins, to be revealed in due course.
Sweden’s GOAT appeared out of nowhere in 2012 with their debut album World Music. The record was quickly heralded as one of the albums of the year, if not the decade thus far. Their rare, shamanic live shows, with a heady mix of afro, psych, funk, kraut and space rock have already become legendary amongst the people who have been lucky enough to bear witness. Their performance at Liverpool International Festival Of Psychedelia will coincide with the release of their second LP, so expect something very special.
For the uninitiated the Bristol/London based Rocket Recordings has been
releasing psych infused outsider music since it’s unlikely inception in 1998. The label issued a double LP Crystallized just last month, to celebrate 15 years at the psych coal face.
