In celebration of the creative community that has surrounded The Kazimier between 2007 and 2015, this merry band of revellers from across the Kaz’s creative spectrum gathered together to bring you this fitting and festive send-off. This Is The Time is the A-side of the LIVERPOOL CENTRE OF THE CREATIVE UNIVERSE SUPERGROUP’s Christmas single, released as a 7″ double A-side, with all profits donated to the Nepal Earthbag House Appeal.
Kazimier co-founder Laura Brownhill gathered together a dozens-strong cast of people who’ve been instrumental in the wider Kazimier collective the years as a way of having one final hurrah and celebrating the magical creative spirit the place has nurtured. The song was written by James Canty and was arranged/conducted by Jonathan Herring (of Ex-Easter Island Head and The Aleph) – below is a full list of credits and performers.
The record is available to buy now from Bandcamp both in physical and digital form.
May the magic live on!
