Liverpool Exhibition & Rarities Album Release
“An exhibition celebrating the 30 year anniversary of the first tour by seminal Liverpool band The La’s.”
In September this year legendary Liverpool record company The Viper Label and RedHouse Originals Gallery will present an exhibition of rare and unseen photographs documenting the first tour by The La’s. The exhibition coincides with the release of ‘The La’s 1987’; a compilation of unreleased studio recordings and live rarities, recorded in Liverpool in 1987.
These rare photographs were taken by friend of the band Jake Summerton, and recently re-discovered - having been being lost and found many times, before eventually turning up at Jake’s son’s house in Wales.
Guitarist Paul Hemmings: “Jake Summerton was one of the first people to take photos of The La’s. I remember him being a ball of energy. He knew he was capturing a magical time and had the eye to do it. I’m extremely pleased he is now getting the credit he so rightly deserves.”
The exhibition, which opens at The Florrie in September, will also include original handwritten lyrics, set-lists and ephemera, which will going on public display for the very first time. The collection then moves to RedHouse Originals, Harrogate in October.
