LIVERPOOL’s infamous BANDWAGON club continued its third birthday celebrations yesterday (July 5) with guerrilla gigs in the early hours of the morning.
Gary Bandit said to NME.COM: “We were all sitting in drinking when Freddie (747’s frontman) suggested we play a gig in the park. We got a generator, some candles and told a few people, and the word just spread.”
The club achieved notoriety with the success of bands like Coral, who all played their early gigs at the night. The Bandwagon, held in The Zanzibar Club, has also seen appearances from Noel Gallagher, as well as a brief residency in New York.
The impromptu gig is one of the first in Liverpool, in a wave which began last year with Jane’s Addiction’s flashmob gigs in London.
