Liars – Initial Albums

liars ticketsThis line-up (Andrew/Hemphill/Noecker/Albertson) released the first Liars full-length, They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top, in October 2001. The album was recorded in a mere two days. Despite lackluster promotion by their record label, Gern Blandsten, the energy of the album eventually bought Liars their fair share of hype amidst the much-publicized Post-punk revival scene of New York. Liars was not averse to this attention, but the problem of being pigeonholed an even more pressing challenge for them to overcome.

The first was entitled We No Longer Knew Who We Were; it was an official release of the Liars‘ early demos recorded in 2000. The second, however, showcased new material. Fins To Make Us More Fish-Like (November 2002) showed progression from their signature sound, but without any material that would seem significantly out of place on their debut. Most noteworthy, perhaps, is “Every day is a child with teeth,” which concentrates more on sound texture and tense, stuttering percussion than the more danceable rhythms for which Liars had come to be known.

Liars Tickets are available at Sold Out Ticket Market at nominal rates.
