A weird one today!

Something like a bizarro world, latter day Gang of Four (best I can do), the Liars first album (and only one I have) "They Threw Us All In a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top" came out in 2001, featuring bare, stripped down noise-dance-punk with some of the strangest lyrics and song titles ever cooked up. The Liars were guitarist/singer Angus Andrews, drummer Julian Gross, and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Hemphil. This is not going to be for everybody, trust me, I don't know too many people who are even familiar with this disc, but it is a pretty good one, give it a shot if totally unfamiliar.

Highlights, for me, are the way cool "Mr You're On Fire Mr"and " Nothing Ever Is Lost or Can Be Lost, My Science Friend" (warned ya!)......they check in with "Why Midnight Walked, But Didn't Ring Her Bell" which runs less than one minute, they also crack the THIRTY MINUTE mark on the finale, "This Dust That Makes Mud", out there stuff for sure.

I never heard anything else by them....I remember their second disc getting a horrible review somewhere, I see that they've released  a bunch of stuff....if by some slim chance you know much about their post-"Trench" work, describe it for us. They have a discography Torrent on the Bay, but I don't want to grab it unless it is worthwhile. Anyone know?

01 Grown Men Don't Fall In the River, Just Like That/02 Mr, You're On Fire Mr/03 Loose Nuts on the Veladrome/04 The Garden Was Crowded and Outside/05 Tumbling Walls Buried Me In the Debris With ESG/06 Nothing Is Ever Lost or Can Be Lost My Science Friend/07 We Live NE Of Compton/08 Why Midnight Walked, But Didn't Ring Her Bell/09 This Dust Makes That Mud

Now a couple of words.....I appeciate the living hell out of the people who contribute here, they are what makes this thing work....but, I wonder if I an ask a fvor of them? As an example, I got a comment today on the Boomtown Rats post, which was long ago, featuring som new material with a link to the same.....problem is, I doubt mny people will SEE IT THERE, as the original post is so old....if you do something like that, and it's GREAT that many do, could you please take a couple of extra mintues and, say, after posting you link THERE, come to the most RECENT post, and just make a note there, "Hey, just a note to tell everyone I posted some Boomtown Rats stuff on the Boomtown Rats post, go check it out if you're interested", something like that. My reason is I want as many people as want the material to know it's there.....PLEASE? I COULD notfy everyone each time someone does that, and will continue to, but it would save me SO MUCH time, and I would apprciate it greatly..because agin, this blog is NOT simply about ME trying to accumulate a mountain of music (already have one trust me), it's about EVERYON accumlating not just "a" mountain of music, but THEIR custom designed, PERFECT mountain of music.....and if a Boomtown Rats fan KNOWS who looks here everyday SEES that he can pick up some additional stuff he/she wants, that is great.....I WILL continue to notify everyone of such postings, it is THAT important to me to get the stuff in the hands of those who desire it, but you generous people who share files here, files that are relative to OLDER posts, it would help me a TON if you'd notify people in the current comments section.

Now, a couple of other things.....every day, I am inundated wih requsts for re-ups.....as much as I
would love to fulfill all of them, I simply can't.....there are TOO MANY. I'm sorry, someone today wants me to reup a bunch of the Sleater-Kinney stuff from two years ago.....that was a HUGE, 7 part post, and of course the links are dead.....if a BUNCH of people requested a Sleater-Kinney re-up, I'd redo the whole thing (I did for the Monster Magnet post), but I simply don't have time to put up a new post everyday AND reup (literally) HUNDREDS of files tht people want.....or, here is an alternative we can put to a vote. Would you want me to take a break from new posts, and do a couple weeks of re-up requests? I COULD do that, if enough people woul benefit from it. Please tell me if that would be the best thing to .....if you guys want it I will give maybe a week's notice, to give everyone a chance to check the old, dead-link posts, and request them, then I would spend two weeks or however long fulfilling re-up requests. I can't halp everyone out unless I know what you want (DO NOT START sending reup requests NOW, I get more than enough of them as it is)......just let me know (comments section) if that would be something you would like me to do.

And ONE more thing, this jut came up the other day, but it happened again.....do not email me
requesting that I email files to you, in particular ones I've never even heard of/have never posted. Frankly, who, exactly, do you think you are? If there is something you are looking for, ASK ABOUT IT IN THE COMMENTS SECTION, if there is interest and I am able I will post it (see: recent Flipper post) and EVERYONE ELSE can see it, and possibly help out as well....but again, this is not an MP-3 flea market. I want to help everyoneout, but PLEASE do it RIGHT, so the highest amount of people can HELP OUT the highest amount of people......that is how it SHOULD work, NOT thinking I will dig through my stuff and look for something just for YOU.....and ALL I am asking is no emails thinking I will email you something.....ALL I ask is use the comment section of the blog, doesn't seem like that much to ask!
