End of the Pier

End of the Pier, an album by likeallstars with Chris Almond, James Dolan, Marcus Harley, Kerri Frain and Gary Law.

A document of unfinishable business in the music industry. We hear interpolations of glitch, gestures of psychological truth and echoes in incoherent space. Lyrics and language are given more dramatic purpose than habitual process of abstraction through cut-ups could allow. With a start point of Pulp’s classic Britpop rise and fall in a night of a casual E-head, the lyrics that follow obliquely tell a story. And in the end these were times we had, recorded and prepared for eternity.
