Default Liars

Saw them live last week after having listened to their excellent latest album loads over the past year. They were pretty damn good.

They combine sounds of past alternative bands like JAMC and Sonic Youth but there is something distinctly new about it e.g. "Plaster Casts of Everything" which is strange 'rave' song its own way.

I still need to get "Drum's Not Dead" as well. How do people rate it compared to the latest album?
"In this Catholic Club they never had the ****ing TV on and I was going, 'That Big Brother, it won't catch on. British people won't watch that ****.' And then they went, at nine o' clock, 'Shh!' and turned the telly on! It was, like, people asleep in bed. To me, I can't understand that. The encouraging thing is, 'You were right all along, Smith: people are stupid." - Mark E Smith

Liars is a great band. Absolutely love Drums Not Dead, They Threw Us, and Sisterworld

EDIT: to answer your question OP, Drums Not Dead is my favourite album by them.

I really like Drums Not Dead, not so fond of anything else.

They were good live when I saw them too, very charismatic.

Pretty much love all of their albums, but apart from They Threw Us... they are slow burners, takes me months/years to get into a new album.

I've heard two albums They Were Wrong So We Drowned and Drum's Not Dead and I love them, especially the former, for now. I found that it wasn't well received when it came out being a transitional album and pretty experimental when compared to the first. But, as I wrote somewhere, I have a soft spot for these transitional albums, usually, because they are brave, unpredictable and have a sense of adventure. That's the reason why I love Sonic Youth's Bad Moon Rising so much. Anyway, I was hooked immediately, especially when the opening track is such a powerful song like 'Broken Witch'.

I've recently reacquainted myself with their discography, forgot how much I love this band. Drum's Not Dead in particular is spectacular. I honestly don't think they've released a bad album.
