MP3: Liars - John Peel Session 2004
Here's something nice to tide you over until I get the first post in the Manics Discography done (see post below). I hadn't been a big Liars fan before the release of this years Drum's Not Dead, as I was always put off by the pretentiousness and the huge Pitchfork hype. However their latest album is such a good one that I don't think i'm the only person to be converted away from my past scepticism.
Along with the notorious !!!, I think Liars are probably the best band to come out of the recent Dance-Punk scene, and as I know that lots of bloggers and blog readers are fans, I thought i'd stick up this Peel session. Recorded in May 2004 (I believe just before they entered the studio to record Drums), the first three tracks are taken from that year's They Were Wrong, So We Drowned, and the fourth song, Bugman Needs A Hugman, I believe is still unreleased.
I've also got another Liars session from 2002 that i'll no doubt put up at a later date. Until then, enjoy.
On another note, today I realised that The Royal Tenenbaums is the only really good Wes Anderson film, and wondered why on the new Sonic Youth album Kim keeps singing like Nico. 'You're written in her book/You're number thirty-seven, have a look./She's going to smile to make you frown,/What a CLAAAAAAAARN.'
Finally, i'd recommend you scroll down a bit and download the songs by Tobias Froberg that I put up a few days back, because they're bloody good, and as yet no one has commented on them. Go on, be a pal.
