EDITOR’S NOTE It’s been a while, years in fact - and we’re somehow still doing this. A stack of massive issues down and many miles travelled and LiQUiFY is stoked to look back on it all in this issue. We’ve scoured through the archives to bring you a handful of our favourite images from the last 4 years, and a few new things that were hanging around on the hard drives. It’s about swells long gone, gigs that made your hair stand on end, people and places long forgotton and a glimpse of the year ahead. Thanks for being part of it with us, and we’ll see you in 2017 with a fresh batch of lit content. Sit back and soak your eyeballs in our pictorial edition!
