Mathew Street was once the epicentre for all of Liverpool’s finest freaks and seekers. This gradually faded however, and the street diminished into a husk of its former self, now standing as a bleak caricature of soulless tourism, brashly cokey revelry and painfully cheesy music.
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’. With the pool of life cleansed of the corrupting influence, the undercurrents can now flow beneath the manhole cover freely, hopefully ushering in a new cultural era for Liverpool.
This comic book foldout 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.
