The substance that has the most affect upon our culture and upon our lives is completely invisible. We can only see its effects. This substance is information.

Science started out as an offshoot of magic. The two became completely divorced from each other and bitter enemies. Although I tend to think that at the present moment the two are growing back together again. I was reading recently that people at the cutting edge of quantum physics believe that information is a “super weird substance” to quote the actual phraseology, which underlies everything in the universe, which is more fundamental than gravity or electromagnetism or the two nuclear forces.

This would tend to suggest that our entire physical universe is the secondary by-product of a primal information. Or to put it in more magically acceptable terms: “In the beginning, there was the word.”
~ The Mindscape of Alan Moore, 2003

A multi-media label founded by DJ Greg Wilson, Super Weird Substance deals primarily with balearicpsychedelicdubdisco recordings whilst, on the live side, hosting sixties-styled ‘Happenings’ that include talks, art, bands and DJs.

Announcing its presence at the beginning of summer in 2014 – via the good vibes life-affirming mixtape ‘Blind Arcade Meets Super Weird Substance In The Morphogenetic Field’ – the label took five Super Weird Happenings across the country, whilst releasing a series of new recordings on vinyl, the next year. Eight singles were released between June and October, followed by a CD compilation, bringing together all of the singles as well as alternate versions and a special Greg Wilson mix.

Having amassed a posse of crack musicians and singers, Super Weird Substance now boasts the the gruff gravitas of The Reverend Cleve Freckleton, the manic magic of Kermit Leveridge and the sassy swagger of Sweet Tooth T aka The Reynolds. They all perform live together as The Super Weird Society, whilst a new project, The Super Weird Jam, sees the vocalists paired with The Isrights, bringing a live instrumentation to their semi-improvised performances, that draw from the energy in the room.

Building on the success of a memorable Festival No.6 showcase in Portmeirion in 2015, Super Weird Substance returned in April 2017 with their most ambitious event to date – a 14 hour take-over of the Dingle’s Florrie, a multi-room behemoth that drew together many of Liverpool’s cultural strands and drew in some important cultural figures, including anarchist artist, Jamie Reid and seminal comic book artist, Alan Moore, known in some circles as ‘the greatest living Englishman’. The event was named amongst the events of the year by Liverpool Confidential.

Prior to that Super Weird Substance collaborated with the man who bestowed their name, teaming up with Alan Moore and his Mandrillifesto project, Super Weird Substance created their second mixtape, ‘Alan Moore’s Mandrill Meets Super Weird Substance At The Arts Lab Apocalypse’, taking his acute social commentary and reinventing it within their own joyous sonic realm. More releases are planned for 2018, featuring old favourites as well as new recordings.
