Early-80s band on the legendary 99 Records
label. Often namechecked because of the track "Cavern" from which parts were replayed by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five
for their hit single "White Lines". Liquid Liquid were originally a much more experimental sounding band called Liquid Idiot
who released one 7" before reforming as Liquid Liquid and basing their sound around a much more percussive framework. They would invite members of the audience to bring their own percussion to their gigs and at one of these, they were so impressed when Dennis Young
brought a marimba that they invited him to join. They developed their own unique sound which they called 'big beat' (a term some English producers would use more than a decade later for something entirely different). Liquid Liquid still exist and worked together with DFA
on new material.
