Do It Wrong

  • Published in Live

Proving that two wrongs do in fact make it right Liverpool's Wrong Festival alldayer returns on the final Saturday of April, for the ridiculously cheap price of £25 (or £20 if you get in early enough). Given that you'd likely normally pay that (or pretty close) to see headliners Future Of The Left alone the fact you're also getting the legendary Damo Suzuki in collaboration with local psych merchants Mugstar, Manchester's psych juggernaut Gnod (much enjoyed by us previously in Liverpool here) as well as the might of Hey Colossus and a plethora of top notch up and coming acts across the event's three North Docks venues then this has to be one of the best value for money musical gatherings in the UK in 2018.

Wrong is the brainchild of Liverpool record label Loner Noise. With a line-up featuring over 30 international acts it will build on the platform created at last year's successful debut outing to further promote the acts of the Freakscene both old and new. Lasting from the early afternoon until the wee hours of the next day it will confirm it's place as a vital addition to the world festival circuit.      


Liverpool Psych Lords Mugstar Release Singles & Rarities

  • Published in News

Liverpool’s Mugstar have steadily grown in status over a fifteen-year timescale on the UK underground rock scene. Collapsar (Skull Scorchers and Neuron Phasers – Singles & Rarities) is a timely collection of singles and rarities which charts Mugstar’s ever evolving outbound journey across the space lanes since the start of the millennium.

Catching the ear of the late, great John Peel with their first single ‘Spotlight Over Memphis’, Mugstar notably went on to record one of the very last ever Peel Sessions for him. From that point on, Mugstar have been transmitting their unique signal out to the furthest reaches of both inner and outer space ever since. This collection brings together some of Mugstar’s best-loved live tracks alongside some now difficult to find rarities – all alternative versions to previous album tracks – as well as previously unreleased tracks.

Taking in pulsating Krautrock, skeletal Post Rock, bludgeoning Psych and even an idiosyncratic take on the folk classic ‘Tam Lin’ (made famous by Fairport Convention), “Collapsar …” collates and unearths the hidden chapters of Mugstar’s ongoing intergalactic travelogue. Mugstar – Collapsar (Skull Scorchers and Neuron Phasers – Singles & Rarities) is presented here as a luxurious double album package. Pressed on heavy vinyl and housed in a stunning gatefold sleeve - rich in visuals, band photos and information - tracing Mugstar’s history to date. 


Mugstar – Collapsar (Skull Scorchers and Neuron Phasers – Singles & Rarities) is available to pre order from Evil Hoodoo now.
