Artist: LIQUID LIQUID
Title: Optimo
Format: 12"
Label: Superior Viaduct
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"Liquid Liquid emerged from New York Citys vibrant Downtown scene in 1981. Formed by drummer Scott Hartley, bassist Richard McGuire, vocalist Sal Principato, and marimba player Dennis Young, the group cut their teeth in underground clubs and street art circles before solidifying their trailblazing style -- a fusion of irresistible basslines, junkyard percussion, and urgent, free-flowing lyrics. Their three EPs, all originally released on legendary 99 Records, would heavily influence dance-oriented indie rock of the early aughts (LCD Soundsystem, DFA Records, et al.). Liquid Liquid continued toward dance-floor perfection with their third EP. 1983s Optimo features the bands best-known songs and remains a high water mark for post-punk aficionados. The title track positively erupts when the bass enters, forcing even the stiffest person in the room to move. While it would be an understatement to say that Cavern may sound familiar (due to its gross sampling in Grandmaster Melle Mels White Lines), Liquid Liquid were indeed the originators of this iconic New York riff." - Superior Viaduct.

Their three EPs, all originally released on legendary 99 Records, would heavily influence dance-oriented indie rock of the early aughts (LCD Soundsystem, DFA Records, et al.). Their eponymous debut establishes Liquid Liquids uncompromising vision, from its startling black-and-white sleeve design to the minimalist grooves found within. While Principatos striking pitch-shifted shouts on Bell Head lead hypnotic circular rhythms, Rubbermiro brings in dub-inflected melodica and Richard Edson (Sonic Youth, Konk) on trumpet, closing appropriately in a locked-groove." - Superior Viaduct.

Following their debut in 1981, Liquid Liquid wasted no time with their second release the same year. Successive Reflexes picks up where the previous EP leaves off with Lock Groove, a slow-paced deconstruction of Fela Kuti and Can that shows how quickly the band was able to capture their stripped-down approach in the studio. Push drives forward with unapologetic funk, yet still sounds utterly unique. Like their 99 labelmates ESG, Liquid Liquid created music on their own terms and artfully avoided the trappings of any single genre." - Superior Viaduct.
