Liars – They Don’t Want Your Corn, They Want Your Kids

After the Nu-No-Wave Punk-Funk of 2001’s ‘They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument on Top’, Liars came back with a(kind of) concept album about the Witch trails in the Harz mountains of Northern Germany titled ‘They Were Wrong, So We Drowned’ (2004). For this, the band got murkier and Witchier; taking the music into gloomier Avant-Rock and Psych realms. However, with this track the Punk-Funk of yesteryear is still on display, with the band sounding like a ramshackle, nastier LCD Soundsystem. The album wasn’t as well received as the previous effort, and sold poorly, which is a shame as it’s a great entry into the 00’s New York Avant-Rock explosion. The following album, 2005’s ‘Drums Not Dead’ was a much more successful album, and still their best.
