N0 Things (ex-Mercy Rule, ex-Opium Taylor, ex-Liars) tonight…

Category: Blog — @ 12:12 pm April 4, 2006

A brief reminder that n0 Things are tonight at O’Leaver’s with The Lepers at O’Leaver’s. As I mentioned last week, n0 things is Ron Albertson’s and Pat Noeker’s new band. Ron (formerly of Mercy Rule) and Pat (formerly of Opium Taylor) were in The Liars for that band’s first (and only listenable) album They Threw Us All in a Trench and Stuck a Monument On Top, released on Gern Blandsten. They were poised to be as big as the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs (and, in fact, had toured with the Yeahs). They quickly outgrew Gern Blandsten and signed to Mute. Then Pat and Ron unceremoniously left The Liars, a band that they formed. I’ve never gotten the straight scoop on what happened (maybe I will tonight). I assume the label thought that sideshow-freak frontman Angus Andrew was the driving force behind the band. Well, anyone who’s heard the two Mute releases that followed know that isn’t the case. Ron and Pat licked their wounds and formed n0 things in the spring of 2004 with singer/guitarist Christian Dautresme. Based on what I’ve heard on their Myspace page, their sound has evolved into something more dissonant and disturbing, though you can still dance to it. Show starts at 9:30 and is $5.
