Any other fans of them on here? I can never find anybody else to talk about them with!
didn't they though? I think this is it.
Anyway, I got a Liar deluxe reissue the other day and it sounds wonderful.
listening to Hell Songs right now, I'm liking it a lot, thanks.
At first thought you meant Daughter, which sounded like a weird recommendation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bU5F-DvGLkA
Don't forget about Scratch Acid OP.
There used to be JL threads years ago.
I think now it's at the point where they've been discussed enough.
Head and Down. Shot is also acceptable
Agreed. I watched that whole show while I was high in my bathroom. I didn't want to get up and leave the bathroom because it was so good.
listen to it. It's good. All the Lizard building blocks are present.
Steve only makes great albums. I haven't been let down by one of his projects yet
Down, Shot, and Head are all good
Just don't bother with Blue
Best jesus lizard song coming through
There's a live video of Yow using an aerosol can at his crotch, spraying it on the crowd as this beautiful riff plays
>old guy story time
I went to see Jesus Lizard in Olympia when they were touring with Cop Shoot Cop. mainly I went for Cop Shoot Cop, as I was really into industrial at the time. Cop Shoot Cop was good, but jesus Lizard was fucking incredible. David Yow pretty much performed like Iggy did for The Stooges back in the day (or at least how you imagined he did from photos), The crowd wasn't superinto it, though I think just because Olympia is full of pussy college students.
My friends and I were by far going the craziest in what there was of a pit, and we got to talk to David Yow and the other guys after the show. They appreciated our energy and took out names and told us they were putting us on the guest list at the next night's show in Seattle.
We went up to see that show, but it was at The Off Ramp -a bar - and the bouncers s were having none of letting us in, seeing as how we were all underage, even though they admidted we were on the guest list. we ended up getting drunk in the alley and stealing the bar's dumpster by riding down this huge hill the club was on and crashing it into a parked car.
A few years later (mid 90s, maybe) they came back to Seattle and the fire marshal informed them that the should would be immediately shut down if Yow left the stage or there was any stage diving and was present (or had a representative there, whatever) at the show. So that show was relatively lame, but still great
Liar, Down, and Goat are all great fucking albums. Love Jesus Lizard.
If you guys dig them you should listen to Daughters.
