Mathew Street was the epicentre for all of Liverpool’s finest freaks and seekers. But this gradually faded and the street diminished into a husk of its former self, now standing as a bleak caricature of soulless tourism.
This is why is was decided the bad spirits would be exorcised from the pool of life on the twenty third day of November, 2017 – the first annual ‘Toxteth Day Of The Dead’ and the date the JAMs ‘Burn The Shard’. Once the pool of life has been cleansed of the corrupting influence, the undercurrents will flow beneath the manhole cover freely allowing for a new cultural era for Liverpool.
This book provides an illustrated introduction to the cultural significance of Liverpool’s Mathew Street and follows the cleansing ritual of the plague doctors summoned by Liverpool Arts Lab.
THIS BOOK CONTAINS A LIFE-SIZED REPLICA OF THE MANHOLE COVER. FOLD IT OUT, STAND ON IT, AND FEEL THE ENERGY OF THE MEGA-POWERED INTERSTELLAR LEY LINE
