Liar's Club

Liar's Club

The perennially clever, pop purists from Tacoma, WA are back with their fifth studio album after a multi-year hiatus. With a new album “Come and Go," Liar's Club once again ply the airwaves and the netwaves with their infectious blend of thinking man's pop and wry social observation.

History

Liar's Club was originally formed by members of the Tacoma-area group PG-13 in 1988. Liar's Club started out as a trio: Jayson Jarmon (vocals, guitar, bass), Kevo X Thomson (bass, keyboards, vocals) and Brad McLane (drums). When McLane left the band, they recruited new guitarist Scott McPherson (vocals, guitar).

At the time, Liar's Club was unusual among Seattle and Tacoma bands in the late 1980s and early 1990s because they focused on melodic pop and intricate studio production, while grunge and punk music were popular in Seattle at that time. They achieved regional radio success and were often associated with the humorous advertising campaigns that accompanied their records.

Notable songs include "Espresso Girl" (which used the now-popular phrase "Thanks-a-latte...") which received solid commercial and college airplay in the Pacific Northwest. “Cinnamon Smiles" achieved a posthumous No. 1 spot in garageband.com's pop charts in 2002
