3 sociable loners from a small town where the roads & trains out are the main excitement. Pooling inspiration from their record collections, films & books they use machines to shape music to celebrate their frustrations.
Drawn to the 'noir' side of life their pop songs carry a sense of threat/dread. They strive to create music that can be danced to or thought about...experimental fun you can take seriously...smert tunes for sherp people.
Fiercely independant & resolutely open-minded, releases so far include a 7" single, a cassette EP, a compilation CD & digital singles/live EP. So far releases have recieved rave reviews.
Regular live shows have sharpened performances like new razor blades.
Relishing opportunities to curate their own nights featuring ecletic like-minded bands, poets, DJs, visuals & more.
Equally at home warming up crowds for the likes of Sigue Sigue Sputnik,
The Weding Present, Christian Death, The Scenes, Scarlet Soho, Defekt 86,
Avec Sans, Bow Wow Wow & many more.
Some festival appearances have seen the band spread their dark appeal further...
Gwyn wrestles noise from machines & sculpts it into musique fantastique.
Ryan adds angular distorted beauty from six strings & electricity.
Bam applies (dis)passion & echo to words that mean nothing & everything.
We are Liaison.
Liaison rules ok....
'Continental Liaison are not quite like anything I've heard for a long while;
they have ripped it up & started again with a unique deconstructed post punk
rock'n'roll mash up that hits you like The Human League on heroin, a garage
rock Sigue Sigue Sputnik or Thobbing Gristle play pop. Boy this is brilliant
stuff!' - Nuzz Prowling Wolf
'...as the distorted synth weave themselves into your brain...it harks back
to a time of experimentation when electronic music was just coming out of it's
infancy. There is something almost pure about this EP. Perhaps something you
would find on an early industrial compilation or a late night radio show for
the eclectic & up & coming.'- Rock Regeneration
'For fans of the early 80's, who like guitar & electro with a punk touch.
80/100' - Peek-A-Boo
'crackles with energy, attitude & ideas...an eye & ear grabbing package which
anyone would be a little excited to recieve' - R*E*P*E*A*T
