Yup. No fucking regrets. After my proclamation earlier this year that Liberteer‘s debut album, Better to Die on Your Feet Than Live on Your Knees is the front runner for my favourite album of the year, I’m standing by those words 150-fucking-percent. And yes, I still say that even after fucking Palmerston took like four months to run this second part of this interview! I’ve been spinning the album a few times daily since last week and am loving it more and more each time. So, I got in touch with main man (well, only man) behind Liberteer’s all-awesome awesomeness, Matthew Widener, for another round of word association. Here’s the resulting silliness.
Can we have a redo?
Ghostbusters in theater, library ghost, shit my pants.
Light the fucking fuse already.
Appended to half my passwords, ha.
The Iron Lady
In hell with Regan?
Not a foodie but love procedural shows.
Turn the radio dial.
Inside capitalism, just another hierarchy.
Worth voting in 2008 just to see it happen; back to not voting in 2012.
Hate’s extremist endgame.
Oh, that’s why there’s no traffic!
Easy guitar, let’s be honest.
Tribalism. Terror Management Theory.
Humankind’s greatest proclamation of freedom in the face of absurdity. Also kind of pointless. Still, feel like a wide-eyed 9-year-old.
Take out the “e” and make mine a single malt from Islay. Bury me with an Ardbeg.
Three a day slave.
Less fire than in the movies, scary in a different way.
Can be art, but mostly just hobbling.
Can find comfortable ones, but mostly just hobbling.
Better to Die on Your Feet Than Live on Your Knees is out now on Relapse Records. Buy it already, will ya!
