Happy kind of music gets crowd moving

Who: Liquafaction
Where: SJ's on Beaumont
When: Wednesday August 2, 2000

THEY rocked at Wicked Aviva at the Palais two weeks ago and now they are headed for SJ's Hotel for their CD launch on August 2.

The funky, jazz/groove group LIQUAFACTION are a four-piece outfit born and bred on Hunter air.

Clearly there was something in the air they were breathing.

The guys formed after playing in the 1997 Star Struck schools spectacular.

The LIQUAFACTION guys, Simon Archibald on drums; Adam Miller on guitar, Lachlan Renwick on bass and Russell Thornton on vocals, say they pride themselves on remaining free of the limits of one genre of style.

They also have their sights set on success in the commercial music market.

Miller said the eight-song LIQUAFACTION CD revolved around 'happy, dancing music' which aimed to get the crowd up and moving, along with a few acoustic pieces and ballads thrown in for good measure.

'We are probably just trying to make the music as hard to play as we can,' Miller said.

'That's what we usually do because it gets people interested and it keeps us interested.

'All of our music is based on pretty technically complex funk and jazz sounds.'
