His work has been used in Theatre, Film, Radio and T.V. He has also worked in some capacity with the following groups and individuals: Danielle Dax, John Murphy (S.P.K.), Nurse With Wound, Current 93, The Hafler Trio, Steven Severin (Siouxsie and the Banshees) and Cosey Fanni Tutti of Throbbing Gristle.

“This project from the fabulous Andrew Liles is dedicated to the notion that nothing good ever happens in a nursery rhyme, even when enunciated with such gleeful relish by guest narrator Alexander Thynn, the seventh Marquess of Bath. Scratching kittens have to be placated, half-awake children are left to wander around the town at night, and we all know about the girl with the curl in the middle of her forehead. Aided in a couple of places by Sion Orgon from Thighpaulsandra’s group, Liles takes his time over teasing out the darker strands to be found woven into childhood’s brighter moments, carefully stacking eerily sustained tones, desiccated samples and disembodied voices against Lord Bath’s exuberant delivery. The results feel like a compendium of forgotten folklore awaiting its future.” - The Wire
