With his pizza oven presumably complete Gareth Liddiard has turned his attentions to The Drones’ protracted fifth album, which he hopes to have out by the end of the year.
"[We'll release it] at the end of the year if all goes well. Its early days yet but that's the plan," Liddiard told triple j’s Dom Alessio. "I've been writing but, I mean, no one has played yet – [drummer] Mike [Noga’s] in London, Dan [Luscombe’s] in Melbourne and I'm in the country - but I've been writing. I'm just getting past the teenage poetry part, you know what I mean.
"Every time you start writing something you just start from scratch so I'm relearning how to do it and I'm just getting good again. It's like a muscle you haven't flexed in a while; it's kind of all blank and yucky. So my initial attempts are always embarrassing and I have to erase them."
Liddiard will be playing a one-off solo show with Lost Animal at The Regal Ballroom in Melbourne on March 23, before heading off to ATP’s “I’ll Be Your Mirror” in Tokyo with The Drones.
