Prior to forming Liquid Liquid in 1981, the band members
were in two other groups: Liquid Idiot and Idiot Orchestra.
While these ensembles sounded more experimental
than groove-oriented, the beginnings of Liquid Liquid’s
spatial / conceptual framework can be heard here.
Liquid Idiot started at Rutgers University in the late ’70s
and soon relocated to NYC where they performed at various
lofts and clubs including Tier 3, Mudd Club and CBGB.
The band even encouraged audience members to bring their
own instruments to their early shows. Idiot Orchestra was
an offshoot that included a dozen or more players (clarinet,
sax, trumpet, violin, cello, synth, bass, marimba and
drums) resembling a no wave version of Raymond Scott’s
big band.
As musician and artist Richard McGuire recalls, “We
weren’t trying to sound like anyone. We weren’t imitating
anyone. We were just playing. I keep using ‘outsider art’ as
a reference to what we were doing. None of it was made for
a market; it wasn’t made with any intention other than the
enjoyment of making it.”
This split archival LP collects two rare 7-inches from
1978 and 1980, both of which were originally pressed in
hyper-limited editions and self-released by the bands. The
package also features a fanzine of ephemera, rare photos
and new interview with McGuire.
