Prolific Australian-American experimental artist remixes the opening track from Cult of Dom Keller's new 'They Carried The Dead In A U.F.O.' LP
Cult of Dom Keller are today sharing a brilliant Liars remix of 'Run From The Gullskinna', originally lifted from their highly-praised 'They Carried The Dead In A UFO' LP that's out now on Fuzz Club. Out now on all digital platforms, you can stream the Liars remix of 'They Carried The Dead's fierce, shape-shifting opening track below and download it here. The album is available to pick up on vinyl, CD and tape here.
Taking its name from an ancient book of spells bound in human skin which, according to legend, could never be burned, Cult of Dom Keller describe 'Run From The Gullskinna' as “a song about how technology has taken advantage of our tribal instincts, hijacked our attention and polluted our perception with constant noise. It’s about trying to escape the bombardment of misinformation as it casts its spell of confusion.” Liars' Angus Andrew said of his reworking of the track: "My favourite songs to remix are the ones that seem impossible to improve. I felt this way on first listening to the original 'Run From The Gullskinna'. A massive and tumultuous track that despite my efforts to tame it, still runs wild in my mind."
On the remix, Cult of Dom Keller add: “When we were looking at potential artists to work with us for a potential remix of this special track, it struck us how many artists influence bands but how few artists inspire us – particularly modern artists. Yet we all agreed that Liars, through their incredible back-catalogue of post punk, avant-rock and electronic experimentations, is one artist that has continuously inspired us with their disregard for the rules and sole focus on creating their own vision on each album. We find that a rare breed in modern music. The opportunity to work with Angus was an incredibly exciting prospect for us and his own interpretation of the track showed again why Liars continue to be one of the most inventive artists of today.
