The Jesus Lizard

The Jesus Lizard was one of those Chicago bands that made wild, loud music that had a pounding rhythm, but with a certain swagger. Their best stuff was recorded by Steve Albini, and released on Touch and Go Records during the early '90s. I remember seeing them live for the first time and being stunned at the crazy drunken rage of David Yow. You halfway expected him to collapse at any moment. You can check out a few of their songs here:Touch And Go Records. While you're their be sure to check out The Shipping News, June of '44, and the other great Touch and Go artists.

You can hear more samples and order CDs here: Jesus Lizard on
