Long Live Vinyl ventures to the Australian outback 
retreat of Liars’ Angus Andrew, for a guided tour 
of the records that inspired the making of TFCF, 
the group’s album released in 2017 on Mute Records…


USA FOR 
AFRICA
 – WE ARE 
THE WORLD

“It’s the first record I ever bought! I was a kid with very little cash and it was an obvious choice. For the price of one record I could get Kim Carnes, Tina Turner, Cyndi Lauper and Bruce Springsteen, 
all in one buy!”

 

 

 


JUNIOR HOMRICH WITH BRIAN GASCOIGNE – 
THE EMERALD FOREST OST

“The movie is decent but the soundtrack is phenomenal.  Mystical and tribal, with some very awkward but poignant sax and bass-guitar solos.”

 

 

 


WHITNEY HOUSTON
 – WHITNEY 
HOUSTON

“First up, the artwork is amazing. I have 
a copy of it hanging on the wall in my studio. The colours are beautiful. But, yeah, this thing 
plays front to back 
so seamlessly. 
It feels effortless…”

 

 

 


THE KLF – 
THE WHITE ROOM

“In the 90s, I was a stomper. I’d go to clubs where circles were formed and people would take turns in the middle doing ‘the stomp’. 
It was a blast. The KLF and their mysterious brand of ‘stadium house’ was the go-to on those nights.”

 

 

 


BLONDE REDHEAD 
- MELODY OF 
CERTAIN 
DAMAGED 
LEMONS

“Such an important record for me. The musicianship, the songwriting and the lyrics blew my socks off when I heard it. This was at the same time we were mixing the first Liars record.”

 

 


GOGOGO AIRHEART
 – OUT EVERY WINDOW THE SNAP OF ENVY & GREED

“Brash, playful and aggressive…  GoGoGo Airheart were smashing elements of punk and dub together at the beginning of the 00s like no one else.”

 

 

 


ANDY STOTT
 – LUXURY 
PROBLEMS

“My comprehension of music production flipped when I got my hands on this record.  Stott recorded and sampled the voice of his piano teacher Alison Skidmore in a way that made me reconsider everything I was doing.”

 

 

 


THE KNIFE
 – DEEP CUTS

“I’ve collected all of The Knife’s records on vinyl. They’re magnificent things to own and I enjoy each one of them for different reasons. 
I find myself playing Deep Cuts the most because some of the songs on there are my favourites of all time.”

 

 


DEVENDRA BANHART – 
SMOKEY ROLLS DOWN THUNDER CANYON

“I hadn’t picked up on Devendra’s work until I bought this. From then on, I became a devoted fanboy. The mix of instrumentation and styles and the epic scale of the work sent me reeling.”

 

 


DEN SORTE SKOLE
 – LEKTION III

“This is an incredible work of sample-based storytelling… It weaves together disparate elements of music, taken from thousands of different sources, to create a collage that subsumes the individual components.”
