Scousers, swine flu and Seasick Steve - Liverpool Music Week is taking shape...
By phil.brady on 07 November 2009Here we are at Liverpool Music Week feeling a little fragile after last nights revelry. Twisted Wheel played a blinder in The Masque Theatre, considering Jonny, who we interviewed after the gig in the back of the band van, is coming down with what he thinks is swine flu, he caught it off the bass player Rick, who had it last week. The scousers loved them. They are starting to build a good fan base after supporting bands like Oasis, Paul Weller, Ian Brown, Happy Mondays and Kasabian on major tours across the country, in Europe and Japan. This is a band that we are definitely going to see more of in the future, the energy on stage last night spilled out onto an welcoming and appreciative audience.
Later we moved from the theatre into Ink which is a tattoo studio rock and roll bar.
Rojister from The Punning Clan played with 4i2i hip hop crews 'til the early hours, it was refreshing to see intelligent talents spitting their unique brand of rhymes onto the Liverpool collective.
We chatted to the boys after their gig and they were all really sound lads. Mowgli who also performed with 4i2i gave us his debut album.
Local DJs played us into the morning before we made our way back to the hotel after a brilliant night.
Tonight we are going to see Seasick Steve at The Olympia, Reverend and the Makers at Nation Courtyard, which is where Cream use to be held, followed by a dose of rockabilly at Zanzibar before MAPS at Bumper, then finishing the night off back at Zanzibar with a dubstep set.
So a very busy night ahead…
