The Flaming Lips to headline Liverpool Sound City 2015…

Organisers of the Liverpool Sound City Festival today announced that The Flaming Lips are to headline the 2015 event which takes place between Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th May 2015.

This is currently the only European date confirmed by the band for 2015, as such fans will be keen to hear live versions of the Lips current album ‘With A Little Help From My Fwends’ a track-for-track tribute to ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’.

Belle & Sebastian have previously been confirmed to headline Sunday 24th May, with the Friday 22nd slot still to be confirmed.

The 8th festival will take place in the new location of the Bramley Moore Dock on the north shore of the River Mersey – the move from a city centre based multi-venue set up will according to organisers allow “to evolve, grow, challenge, inspire, surprise and delight.”

The booking of The Flaming Lips certainly confirms the festivals intention to do exactly that – a band famed for an unbelievable live show that has ranked them as one of Q Magazine’s ’50 Bands to See Before You Die’.

Liverpool will have never seen such a spectacle as to when The Flaming Lips land at Sound City 2015.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
