|Song by Peach|
|from the album Giving Birth to a Stone|
"You Lied" is a track originally performed by British progressive metal band Peach. It was notably covered live by Tool and released on their Salival live DVD/CD box set.
Progressive metal is a fusion genre melding heavy metal and progressive rock that combines the loud "aggression" and amplified guitar-driven sound of the former with the more experimental, cerebral or "pseudo-classical" compositions of the latter.
Peach were a metal band from England that originally recorded between 1991 and 1994. The band was renamed Sterling in 1995, and Simon Oakes and Rob Havis later reformed as Suns of the Tundra in 2000.
Tool is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California. Formed in 1990, the group's line-up includes drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, and vocalist Maynard James Keenan. Justin Chancellor has been the band's bassist since 1995, replacing their original bassist Paul D'Amour. Tool has won three Grammy Awards, performed worldwide tours, and produced albums topping the charts in several countries.
The lyrics and melody were originally written in the 1980s by Simon Oakes (Peach's vocalist) for Amelia Fletcher, singer with Talulah Gosh. It was originally recorded in 1990 by Amelia and Simon as members of Bloom. After Simon joined Peach in 1992, this was one of the songs he presented the band with from Bloom's live set (along with a few others that appear on early Peach demos). Peach then recorded the song in early 1992 on an 8-track recorder and this version is also available on Peach's website. This was the last time the song featured its original chorus. However, the band soon began to change their sound to be more progressive metal orientated, drawing influence from bands such as Black Sabbath. Early gigs in Los Angeles supporting Tool to promote Opiate also helped to reinforce this change. On their return to England, they brought with them several copies of Ministry's Psalm 69 album, and were particularly fond of the track "Jesus Built My Hotrod". In light of this, they decided to take "You Lied" in a slower, heavier direction.
Amelia Fletcher, OBE is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist and economist.
Talulah Gosh were a guitar-pop group from Oxford, England and one of the leading bands of the twee pop movement, taking their name from the headline of an NME interview with Clare Grogan. They supposedly formed when Amelia Fletcher and Elizabeth Price, both wearing Pastels badges, met at a club in Oxford. Formed in 1986, their original line-up comprised Amelia Fletcher, her younger brother Mathew Fletcher (drums), Peter Momtchiloff, Rob Pursey (bass) and Elizabeth Price (vocals). Pursey left early on, to be replaced by Chris Scott.
Black Sabbath were an English rock band, formed in Birmingham in 1968, by guitarist and main songwriter Tony Iommi, drummer Bill Ward, bassist and main lyricist Geezer Butler and singer Ozzy Osbourne. Black Sabbath are often cited as pioneers of heavy metal music. The band helped define the genre with releases such as Black Sabbath (1970), Paranoid (1970), and Master of Reality (1971). The band had multiple line-up changes, with Iommi being the only constant member throughout its history.
The song was recorded for Peach's second EP ( Burn ). During their stint supporting Tool on the European leg of their Undertow tour, the song quickly became a live favourite with Tool fans and a highlight of Peach's live set, apparently especially popular with Belgians. The song went on to be played every single night of Tool's 1994 UK tour. Peach then decided to include the song on their debut album. As Simon Oakes had been a long time friend of comedian, music writer and novelist Stewart Lee, Simon asked Stewart to write a spoken monologue about lying for inclusion in the recording. The monologue was recorded in two takes. It was included in the version on Giving Birth to a Stone, however, it is so low in the mix that apparently even Stewart Lee himself can't fully make it out, as the first 20 seconds or so are almost inaudible.This segment has only ever been performed live once; when Peach supported Tool at Shepherd's Bush Empire, when Stewart Lee joined them onstage, but he was apparently heavily affected by nerves, despite having performed on stage many times before, as he was not used to a crowd of metal fans. The monologue was not included on Tool's performance of the song.
An extended play record, often referred to as an EP, is a musical recording that contains more tracks than a single, but is usually unqualified as an album or LP. Contemporary EPs generally contain a minimum of three tracks and maximum of six tracks, and are considered "less expensive and time-consuming" for an artist to produce than an album. An EP originally referred to specific types of vinyl records other than 78 rpm standard play (SP) and LP, but it is now applied to mid-length CDs and downloads as well.
Burn is the title of English metal band Peach's fourth release, released in 1993. It is now extremely rare.
Europe is a continent located entirely in the Northern Hemisphere and mostly in the Eastern Hemisphere. It is bordered by the Arctic Ocean to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the west, Asia to the east, and the Mediterranean Sea to the south. It comprises the westernmost part of Eurasia.
Tool's cover version of the song was recorded for inclusion on the Salival box set during the Ænima tour, and features the new line-up of Tool with Justin Chancellor, Peach's bassist, as well as Buzz Osborne ("King Buzzo" of the Melvins) on second guitar. The inclusion of this song (as well as another Peach song, "Spasm") was probably influenced not only by it being their bassist's former band, but also because of the strong friendship that had formed between the two bands during those early tours. Tool's version is slower, heavier, and has a more distinct ending than Peach's version, which fades out.
Salival is a live, outtake, and video album, released as a limited edition box set in CD/VHS and CD/DVD formats in 2000 by American rock band Tool. It includes a 56-page book of photos and stills from their music videos.

Justin Gunnar Walter Chancellor is an English musician formerly in the band Peach but best known as the bass player for progressive metal band Tool. Chancellor is of English and Norwegian descent. After settling in the US, along with his engagement in his musical projects, he and his wife Shelee Dykman Chancellor ran a store called Lobal Orning in Topanga, California, dedicated to music and literature "that shaped and changed" both of them. The store closed in 2008. He started M.T.Void music project with Piotr "Glaca" Mohammed from Sweet Noise. In October 2012, Chancellor featured as bass player on the song "In the Spirit Of..." on The Fusion Syndicate album, released by Cleopatra Records.

As "the evolution of Peach", and "You Lied" being Peach's best known and arguably most popular song, Suns of the Tundra frequently incorporate the song into their live sets to this day. The inclusion of the song has however caused younger fans to ask them why they're playing "Tool covers". "You Lied" was performed at the Download Festival at Donington Park in 2006, where Suns of the Tundra opened the festival on the first day. The monologue section was performed there by Laszlo Pallagi III, the only Hungarian to perform at Donington Park. Footage of this is again available on Suns of the Tundra's website. Incidentally, the headline act for that first day at Donington were Tool.

Dio was an American heavy metal band formed in 1982 and led by vocalist Ronnie James Dio, after he left Black Sabbath with intentions to form a new band with fellow former Black Sabbath member Vinny Appice, the band's drummer.
