special edition lp reissue of liars' 2004 anti-music masterpiece, proving they were the true standouts of the waning disco punk explosion.

from the stuttered drums, computerised drones & chanted refrain of "blood, blood, blood" of 'broken witch', liars' 2nd album is fascinating, visceral & initially impenetrable, providing enough immediately satisfying moments to grab you on 1st listen but truly revealing its masterful strokes of noise-laden genius on further listens. as bizarre as the music is the repeated references to harry potter in the track titles, including 'if you're a wizard then why do you wear glasses?'.
