Liverpool International Music Festival returns next weekend, and as well as a host of live music on the Sefton Park stages, the festival also brings with it a number of other celebrations and commissions.

Liverpool club promoter Marc Jones has curated From Eric’s To Evol , which looks at 40 years of Liverpool’s counter-culture and underground music scene, and includes a conversation panel, and two gigs next weekend at Arts Club and O2 Academy.

Here, Marc takes us through his top 10 gigs at Eric’s and beyond...

8. Dead Kennedys, 29 September 1980

The Kennedys played three Liverpool gigs between 1980 and 1982. They played Brady’s (formerly Eric’s) in 1980, the Royal Court in 1981 and Warehouse in 1982. We could have picked any of the three gigs because they were all incendiary.

Jello Biafra was an incredible front man with a very distinct vocal style. Highly politicised from the US, the Dead Kennedys were famous for songs like California Uber Alles and Holidays in Cambodia. They were a brilliant live band and one of best punk bands ever.

Special mention here to Fugazi (featuring Ian Mackaye) who were an equally important punk band from the States who played Planet X and the Bluecoat in the late 1980s.
