Heavenly Records

GO back to 1990, Jeff Barrett begins Heavenly Records, amidst a backdrop of The Beautiful South topping the charts and Elton John being the most popular artist of the year. Little did he know twenty-five years on, just how important the independent label would become.

Their quarter of a century reign over the alternative spectrum has brought us the likes of Edwyn Collins, Manic Street Preachers and Beth Orton... Today, now boasting a glorified roster of Toy, The Voyeurs and Temples.

Name a better way to celebrate than Sunday 5th July, joining forces with local promoters, Harvest Sun, gifting Liverpool the chance to get in on the birthday action. Set to be the hottest event in Liverpool's 2015 calendar, the label will set up shop at The Kazimier and its garden before the inside venue closes its doors for the last time on New Years Day 2016.

The silver jubilee see's artists such as The Wytches, Kid Wave and King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard take to the stage, flaunting the exquisite talent so openly boasted on Heavenly's portfolio. Followed up by a dose of Duke Garwood who has received immense critical acclaim with albums such as 'Holy Week' and 'Heavy love', not to mention Cardiff's songbird, Gwenno who recently got tipped by NME Magazine.

Having also announced celebrations at this years Glastonbury festival, their Liverpool show signifies the growing importance of the city in the music industry, especially with home-grown talent in the form of Bernie Connor, Stealing Sheep and Hooton Tennis Club. What a great homecoming for our music personnel.

Be sure to get your tickets soon to avoid disappointment, only £17.50 courtesy of Harvest Sun Promotions.

In Person: Probe Records (School Ln) & The Brink (Parr St)
