Quietus Hour Special: Crying Fountains With Liars' Angus Andrew
Luke Turner , August 24th, 2017 10:19

This week on The Quietus Hour, Luke Turner and Seb White were joined by Angus Andrew to discuss the tracks that made up research for new Liars album TFCF

Over the past few weeks The Quietus has been lucky enough to see Liars play live three times, at the Visions Festival, Green Man and last night at Rough Trade East, where Angus Andrew and his new bandmates managed to conjure a special energy that transported us somewhere weird of their own making - it was as if we weren't in a shop. After 15 years of operation the new Liars album TFCF is the first Andrew has made on his own, and it stands out as one of the finest in a remarkable set that few of their peers have come close to. On this week's Quietus Hour, Angus Andrew speaks to Luke Turner about 10 tracks that shaped the record, and gives insights into its creation out in a remote part of the Australian bush. He discusses how the sound of nature made it into every track on TFCF, the move from LA to his homeland, the separation from Aaron Hemphill... and why he's taken to wearing a wedding dress onstage.
