Thanks to BoingBoing, we learned that the influential Downtown NYC post-punk dance band Liquid Liquid is getting the re-release treatment this week via the Superior Viaduct label.
Here's more from Superior Viaduct:
Liquid Liquid emerged from New York City's vibrant Downtown scene in 1981. Their three EPs, all originally released on the legendary 99 Records, would heavily influence dance-oriented indie rock of the early aughts (LCD Soundsystem, DFA Records, et al.)
Superior Viaduct is honored to present these first-time vinyl reissues of Liquid Liquid's classic records (self-titled, Successive Reflexes, and Optimo) in their original 12-inch format as well as an archival LP of rare recordings by the pre-LL bands, Liquid Idiot and Idiot Orchestra.
Other Music looks to have them in stock ... Not sure about our friends at Academy Records on East 12th Street just yet...
In the meantime, you can watch the video above for "Cavern" from 1983 ... with that baseline that went on to do "White Lines."
