The poor guy threw out his back lifting ... a pillow. I don't know what passes for pillow filling these days, but Angus must have been in the right position at the wrong time, tearing something in his lower back and reducing himself to spasms.
The message on their Liars MySpace said "As Angus stooped to retrieve a tiny pillow from the couch in his LA home a seismic bolt tore through the fabric of his lower back rendering him immobile on the living room floor. When Jarrett arrived, Angus was face down in spasms. He alerted Aaron and Julian then sped to Rite-Aid for drugs and heat packs. When Julian arrived Angus was face down near the bathroom, apparently trying to urinate. Julian fetched a large soda cup and suggested the alternative. He then offered to stay the night and take on all nursing duties. Having fed the patient on the floor and set up his living space Angus became adamant Julian go home to bed. In the morning when Aaron arrived Angus was on his back on the floor of the living room. Aaron emptied the 2 large soda cups and they talked about Lorimer St in Brooklyn where the injury first occurred. Jarrett came in with breakfast and talk turned to tour. Its a week till our first show and Angus can't feed himself."
If you missed Liars on their tour with Interpol, all might not be lost. The band is mum on whether they'll be able to actually play any shows, but we'll find out soon as the tour starts in San Francisco on January 25th.
The tour is in support of last years self-titled album Liars. They've aptly chosen upstarts No Age [link] to open the gigs for an all around good show.
