Currently on tour with Radiohead in the US, Liars have posted a breathlessly exalting ‘blog on their MySpace about the Oxford quintet, calling them “purveyors of truth, beauty and a moral responsibility to the planet.”
“In a world full of fear and ripe with insincerity it’s such a relief to have met Radiohead,” they begin, before saying: “We've been welcomed with literal open ams and thoroughly schooled on how to function as a band -not just musically, but ethicly too. [sp]
“The honor is in learning from the best and from the beginning we've been in class,” they continue, no specific member credited with the post. “The important thing for us to make clear is just how awe inspiring this production is.”
From here on in they dive into a dissection of the tour arrangements Radiohead put in place in order to lower their carbon footprint – arrangements that, admittedly, do sound fairly meticulous and mightily thoughtful.
“At the outset we were all given tour water flasks. Plastic anything is like contraband.
“Every bus and truck runs on bio-fuel,” they continue. “There is no idling, rather some new-fangled way to deliver electricity cleanly.
“They don’t do air-freight either. The list goes on.”
As does the admiration, Liars eulogising on a band who “all contribute such an immense amount to the outcome.
“Their extreme individual talents blending so naturally… to witness this first-hand is an education in musicianship and vision that’s certainly not been lost on us.”
Clearly Angus and crew are rather besotted with their British brethren, thanking them for their support and looking forward to reuniting at the Radiohead-curated Daydream Festival next month and then the West Coast tour of the US.
“So no tears yet.”
Not that we’ve heard anything to this effect, but some kind of musical collaboration would no doubt be immense. Fingers x’d Liars' love is reciprocated.
