Issue 53 / March 2015 - OUT NOW

Our March issue is full of the joy os spring as we get a little politicised, and also take a closer look at an oft-overlooked institution that's a pillar of our thriving music community. Our feature on OPEN MIC CULTURE speaks to several of the people who run Liverpool's busiest Open Mic nights, and tries to get under the surface of why they're so important. Throughout this month we will also be reporting from around these various Open Mic nights to get a real feel for it - why not share your thoughts with us on #OpenMicLiverpool.

Cover artists HOOTON TENNIS CLUB are flying along at the moment, and Phil Gwyn managed to pin them down for long enough to chat about their two upcoming singles (released by Heavenly Recordings); having recently changed their name (from Aeroplane Flies High), alt rock trio MOTHERS are ready for the world to embrace their noise,and they don't mind how many flight of fancy it takes to get them there; A LOVELY WAR are a charming mixture of the preppy and the twee, and we think they're destined for big things. Read this so you can say that you read it here first; the only way CHIBUKU know how to celebrate their 15th anniversary is by chucking a huge, all-day party, and that's exactly what they're doing on 14th March. We spoke to head promoter Sean Stephenson about the club night's longevity, and where they're destined to go from here; Paddy Hughes catches up with Merrill Garbus of TUNE-YARDS to talk puppeteering, ahead of their hugely colourful show at Liverpool Anglican Cathedral on 6th March. Elsewhere, we look ahead to the fifth edition of grassroots festival THRESHOLD by previewing some of the musical, film and visual arts highlights; we cast our eyes over the twelve shortlisted artists for the GIT AWARD 2015 shortlist, as well as speaking to the Award's national judges Dot Levine, Robin Murray and Simo Price about why Liverpool seems to have a musical magnet trained on it at present; and Josh Ray gets lost in THE LIVERPOOL DREAM.of Carl Jung, that inspired some intrepid sould to open The Liverpool School Of Language, Music, Dream And Pun in "the Golden Triangle of Liverpool punk" (according to Bernie Connor) in the 1970s.

This month's reviews section documents the first blooms of spring for Liverpool's gigging community, including shows by JULIAN COPE, BLACKALICIOUS, PEACE, PAPERHEAD, NILS LOFGREN, THE MIDNIGHT RAMBLE, THE WAVE PICTURES and a whole lot more reviews and previews.

As part of a new regular column looking at wider issues that affect our independent creative community, Emma Brady has THE LAST SAY this month, as we count down the days to the 2015 general election, one that will prove to be one of the most important elections for decades.
