katiejane garside liar, flower ‘geiger counter’ new album

dear friends

we are sending love and hope everyone is ok

in these luminously uncertain times

it seems that liar, flower ‘geiger counter’ will step out into the world

she asked that of us so that is what we shall do

i found her one day in a notebook, she spoke of a new chapter and the dropping away of tenure

she likes to make noise

this record was conceived and collected through a year of submersive meditation, trance and improvisation, insisted by my bird bones insisting, i went down deep into the soil, set alight corrupt files and malware, something needed routing out taking me ever deeper

there is a prescience to this record that we are not entirely sure what to do with

the words are too big, they vanquish, swallow up, this is why

i use so many words to say ‘i will not speak’

so here is an offering of music as we skate the frozen lake of unknowing…the sun and the wild wind

alien fingers typing alien phone

i love you bright heart, i love you



we are as you know in the most literal sense a small cottage industry and were hoping to release our liar, flower ‘geiger counter’ record in early march this year…before we lost access to our beloved printers…thankfully One Little Indian have kindly offered to help us with this release and have been generous enough to give us all proceeds from the initial limited edition run…this income covers us for the next year up to the release of the next record…we survive and are able to do what we do solely by the support of our supporters, we live hand to mouth making music, year by year…

so today, monday 20th April 2020 we release:

liar, flower ‘geiger counter’ limited edition double vinyl (500 copies) on presale, including an immediate (as in today) digital download (flac/mp4) on purchase, two extra songs on the d side, two signed 12”/12” framable prints, limited edition cd in glassine envelope, pressed flower in glassine and a 12”/12” comic artwork book, all held in a clear vinyl sleeve (delivery approximately 4-6 weeks) available here: One Little Indian

and in the light of wanting as many people to hear the record as possible a direct digital only download is also available right now from One Little Indian’s website: One Little Indian

for those facing financial uncertainty we’ve arranged to release the complete record on the 1st may 2020 on all the usual streaming services so…if you’re unable to support us by buying the album we’d love you to show your support by streaming this record…

we’re very thankful to One Little Indian for stepping up at the last minute to help us make this album available in as many ways as possible


so with that all said i do suggest we go to the music, we go to the sky

ever with love


hello deer friends

as a precursor (if that’s what it is) to a long player release in jan/feb 2020 ms kjg is making ELeVeN one off works of art ‘recording five perhaps six of my autoharp songs that came through the portal over the last few months…in mono with a beautiful microphone…straight to cassette’, this will be a raw, unadorned rendition/first outing of these songs with poetry, falling over and happenstance noise…katiejanegarside the musical…(playing time 27mins approx)

to clarify each of these cassette tapes will be one of ELeVeN DiFfEreNt pErFoRmaNCeS, each one a stand alone master of a moment in time, ONE SINGLE UN-COPIED COPY, a master tape (should the buyer request we can provide a digital transfer of this performance)

artwork will be a series of eight photos (six self portraits) set on a concertina booklet C6 in a hand drawn glassine envelope (a flower drawn in ink by kjg)

please contact us here if you would like more info and pricing info@katiejanegarside.com

and LIAR, FLOWER’S debut album ‘GEIGER COUNTER’ is to be released january/february 2020

‘oozing sticky noise, a joyous apocalyptic violence cracking open with autoharp nudity and sunlit tears’

she told us to call her ‘liar, flower’ so we let slip ruby throat into this timely veil

and we plan next year to be a year of playing live so please do come and see us, we look forward to seeing you very much…

always yours with love

have a beautiful end of year dear people
