Slip In & Out of Phenomenon: the Music of Liquid Liquid

Here’s a couple jams by the New York post-punk act Liquid Liquid which a friend got me back into recently. Their track “Cavern”, from the Optimo EP, recorded by Don Hunerberg was sampled (actually played by the Sugar Hill house band) on Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel’s “White Lines (Don’t Do It)”. The original records were pressed in very limited quantities on the 99 label (pronounced “nine-nine” - more on 99 here), and, ironically, this is what effectively killed that record label (read below). Though the pressings were small the impact the music has made is lasting and far reaching.
