Limited Edition Recycled Color Vinyl LP!
They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top is the first installment of the new Liars reissue series, where every two months an album from the back catalog will be released on limited edition recycled color vinyl. The campaign kicks off with Liars' debut album, originally released in 2001 and recorded over two days in Brooklyn, New York with producer Steve Revitte (The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion & Beastie Boys). At the time of its release, Liars were Melbourne-born Angus Andrew (vocals & pedals), Aaron Hemphill from L.A. (guitar & drum machine) and Nebraskians Pat Nature (bass & synthbox) and drummer Ron Albertson.
Liars have a surprisingly unique approach that distinguishes them from other groups in their willingness to experiment with different tones, volumes, and styles, all of which make They Threw Us in a Trench and Stuck a Monument On an astounding debut. Catchy group vocals are all over the disc, and just about every chorus is instantly memorable yet still somewhat pummeling. The use of digital sounds and beats only adds to the unique properties of the record, giving it a feel somewhat akin to later Les Savy Fav records, only with a much more punk-fueled sound. Liars are something special, and when a young band puts out a record like this it is hard not to pay attention. Where they'll go from here is impossible to guess, but with a band this hyperactively creative, that seems to be the point.
