A bit surprised there wasn’t a topic for this, but today is the 13th anniversary of the release of this project. From Paul’s site:

Liverpool Sound Collage ‘ was released thirteen years ago today; 21st August 2000. The album – one of Paul’s more left-field releases – was recorded for Peter Blake’s ‘About Collage’ exhibition at The Tate Liverpool.

Recalling the cut-up techniques Paul first began experimenting with in the 60s, he recorded interviews with astonished passers-by and shoppers in Liverpool, as well as chats with students at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA). Studio out-takes made between 1965-69 with George Harrison , Ringo Starr and John Lennon were also incorporated. Paul then assembled the sound collages in collaboration with Cian Ciarán from Super Furry Animals and Youth.

Speaking at the time of release Paul said, “I compiled sounds and made the basic collage … I asked Cian Ciarán of Super Furry Animals to mix something from it, which he kindly did, and my mate Youth used his talents to add a final touch”.

Check out samples from the album below and let us know what you think in the comments.

Fans can get their copy of the album now from iTunes HERE!

When I first saw this album I was expecting something along the lines of Two Virgins , but instead I got a pretty decent and catchy remix of sounds.  It definitely surpassed my expectations.  All around I thought it was a wonderful album, worth a second listen.

I’ve probably heard Two Virgins more.

I really enjoyed this. It made me sad that John and Paul didn’t get to explore this kind of work together in later life 🙁

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

Considered taking this off of my iTunes ‘sync list’ for my phone to save space for some live Phish and Oysterhead shows I recently acquired but I figured I’d want to give it another listen at some point and I just felt better knowing I had access to Liverpool Sound Collage in any instance, no matter what. Its actually a very cool album, despite my somewhat light taste for the avant garde. ‘Life With The Lions ’ is probably my favorite avant garde work outside of Whats the New Mary Jane, Revolution 9 , etc. Velvet Underground has some interesting avant garde as well, as do Phish and Oysterhead the previously mentioned bands.
