Flowered Up with Liam Maher (centre)

Very sad news announced today, Liam Maher, the charismatic lead singer of the spectacularly self-destructive baggy/acid house band Flowered Up has died suddenly. The band made one legendary album then imploded in a haze of drugs, booze and unfulfilled potential. But before they disappeared they left the world this anthem which describes, better than anything else since or before it, the mad, crazy phenomenon that was the early nineties acid house/rave scene – “weekender”.

“Weekender, whatever you do, make sure what you do makes you happy” – Liam Maher

RIP
