Anyone mourning the recent end of Liverpool Music Week is strongly advised to head to Mello Mello this Saturday where an eclectic bill of nascent Liverpool talent takes to the stage.

A fundraiser for Nerve magazine, on the rise garage rock/psychedelic voyagers The Wild Eyes head an impressive bill.

Nerve magazine, which is staffed by unpaid volunteers, covers the latest in grassroots art and culture from across Merseyside, including theatre, music and film reviews alongside articles on art and photo exhibitions and social awareness pieces.

Comprising of a website,, a three times a year magazine and calendar and various social gatherings including the highly successful Nerve Centre last autumn, the organisation is now in its eighth year.

The night at Mello Mello is headlined by The Wild Eyes, who are fresh from supporting Frankie and the Heartstrings headline appearance at Mojo for Liverpool Music Week.

The also turned in a memorable performance at the Leaf Café’s Hallowe’en Ball last month supporting I Am Austin.

Currently readying their debut single for release, the three-piece have a formidable live reputation in the city and are not to be missed.

Mashemon have been on the receiving end of much positive press recently, their melding of electronic beats and crunching guitar riffs best heard on recent singles Lips, Limbs, Lungs and the just-released Guts.

Also on the bill, Yes, Lord Sugar feature former members of the much-tipped Elle S’appelle, who are quickly establishing themselves on the city’s gig circuit.

Completing the line-up is bluesman Nick Lawless whose music is described as a synthesis of Howling Wolf and Robert Johnson.

The whole night costs a mere three pounds on the door, with all proceeds in aid of a good cause.
