Liquid Sky - the shop, not the movie

The oral history thing is getting a little bit of hand, don't you think?

Legendary-ish rave store Liquid Sky gets the oral treatment

Chloe Sevigny worked there, don't you know?




Well I have some fond memories of Liquid Sky ...  first place in NYC I found import 12 inches from Suburban Base and Moving Shadow, for starters

braindance

 "Jean-Claude Risset as a brain in a jar struggling to start a car via telekinesis. Enormous, gritty plumes of non-kick, n-dimensional marble mazes feeding massive garbage disposals, infinite lattices of hydraulic tennis matches" - Chris Madek of Bee Mask exalts the becoming-abstract techno of Metasplice at Electronic Beats

"The tracks arrayed symmetrically across its four sides begin and end abruptly, each a fixed window on a process which unfolds with no interest in whether or not anyone is listening. It might feel voyeuristic to hear these pieces if they didn’t sound so inhuman; instead, the impression is much closer to the uncanny".
