This year, Liverpool's most important music festival, Sound City, will take place at the Baltic Triangle for the first time - the creative quarter of Liverpool, and where Eastwood Guitars EU headquarter resides.
Besides opening our first ever popup shop to coincide with the festival, we'll also be helping out some of the bands who are travelling to Liverpool, by letting their use our instruments during their sets.
Here's a list of all the bands who'll be playing our guitars - including the bands who are already Eastwood artists.
“Sleeveless denim, glam-rock drainpipes and huge 80s-esque slicked back hair, Generation look like missing cast members from The Lost Boys or The Warriors. They look amazing. And the good news is they sound even better than they look; style AND substance, the best of combinations” - gigslutz. Watch them play: Airline 59 3P Ripley, Eastwood Sidejack Bass 32
Trupa Trupa are Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, Tomek Pawluczuk, Wojtek Juchniewicz and Rafał Wojczal. In 2015 the Band released „Headache" – a critically acclaimed album released on CD and cassette by the British label Blue Tapes and X-Ray Records (Jute Gyte, Tashi Dorji, Mats Gustafsson, Katie Gately). Watch them play: DEVO Whip It,1975 Morris the Cosey, Classic 4
Their diet has been based on the big influence of bands like Pink Floyd, Tame Impala, King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard, Velvet Underground, MGMT... and as it could not be otherwise their Ying & Yang are The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. Mixing 70’s sounds with more current stuff, they’ve achieved a mix of psychedelic rock in pure state. Without too many concessions to easy palates and full of surprises with unpredictable twists and rhythms. Watch them play:Airline 59 3P DLX, Airline H78 and Surfcaster Bass.
Haiku Garden is a band of four young dudes from Ljubljana, Slovenia. They play noisy, guitar-driven music, interlaced with poppy vocal harmonies. Shoegaze, dreampop, neo-psych and noise rock are all thrown into the equation. During performances, the band is draped in visuals (courtesy of 5th member Kristina), which makes the experience even more mind altering. Watch them play:
Queen Zee & The Sasstones are one of the hottest bands in Liverpool right now and theirs should be one best and most eagerly awaited sets at the festival. Trashy, glam, punk rock - and Zee herself is another guitarist who already uses an Airline 59 1P.
