By | Published on Thursday 2 December 2010

Organisers of Liverpool Sound City earlier this week announced the first speakers for next year’s convention, which will take place in da Pool from 19-21 May. Simon Raymonde, one time Cocteau Twin and now boss man at popular indie label Bella Union will appear in conversation with Eric Pulido of Midlake, the American rockers who are, of course, signed to Raymonde’s label. They will discuss the ways bands and labels can best work together.

Sound City boss Dave Pichilingi told the Liverpool Daily Post: “From a personal point of view I’m over the moon because I’m a big fan of Bella Union and the stuff they do, I’m a huge fan of Midlake and I was a big Cocteau Twins fan. But beyond that, from a business perspective, it will be really interesting to hear from Simon as he’s such a great innovator”.
