Molotov Cocktail Party - Is a explosive cd packed with melody and just enough edge to keep you from getting sick to your stomach. The titration of a steadfast rhythm, in the pocket percussion, and strong vocal make this recording a righteous concoction worthy for daily consumption. You can never have too much on your plate to not consider this a main dish.
After forming in September of 1991, six ambitious years of touring and recording had eventually brought this trio to the surface. By 1997, with their 3rd full length release completed, Liquid Image had been featured in over 13 nationally distributed surf videos, making the band a communal name throughout the surf industry.
Finding themselves immersed in high energy sound tracks with great giants like Helmet, Offspring, Face To Face, Buck-O-Nine, Pennywise, and Sprung Monkey, Liquid Image made some ground which aided in the sale of over 2000 copies of their 2nd release, "Drain," which became available in over 50 stores throughout Florida including Spec's Music, Best Buy, and Blockbuster Music.
Originally from Florida, the band decided to concentrate the promotion along the East coast. College radio, magazine advertisements, and cable television extreme sports programs became the major medium in which the music was used to gain popularity. Air play was focused towards college stations like WFIT, WUTZ,WVUM, WCPR, WFIN, WBUL, WKGC, WMNF, and commercial stations WFNX in Boston and Surf 107 in Wilmington, NC. Late summer hurricane season touring of the Eastern U.S. allowed for scoring countless waves and playing filled venues. All tours were accompanied by surf video premieres to assure maximum stoke.
In 1999 Liquid Image played their last Florida show with Unwritten Law before permanently relocating to San Diego and recording their next release. The new cd, appropriately titled, "Molotov Cocktail Party," is Liquid Image's 5th release containing some explosive tracks that will be sure to leave any listener smoldering in their hole.
Now in 2005 after a 1 year lul, the band has picked up the pieces reforming with some new veteran punks while adding an extra guitar for those late night cravings for more crunch. Check in with your local college station and request a spin of the latest cd.
