The Jesus Lizard formed in late 80's Austin, TX after David Yow (vox) and David Wm. Sims' (bass) previous band Scratch Acid broke up. They started the Jesus Lizard with Duane Denison (guitar) and a drum machine and recorded their debut EP Pure with Steve Albini in 1989. A move to Chicago prompted the firing of the drum machine in favor of Mac McNeilly (drums) and in 1990 the band recorded their first fulllength, Head, for Touch and Go.
While the labels «seminal» and «legendary» are often applied too easily, they both accurately describe the Jesus Lizard. They released five more remarkable LPs before disbanding in 1999, the last being 1998's Blue. During that time, they toured endlessly and issued not only the critically acclaimed studio LPs but also assorted singles, EPs, compilations and a live album. Pitchfork has said of them: «the Jesus Lizard raised a bar that few bands have reached since...Rarely does a band have each member adding something essential to such a united, ferocious whole.»
December's tour will no doubt remind everyone that the Jesus Lizard excelled not only in the studio but on stage. The band is indeed matchless in that capacity. Stereogum have called them «one of the greatest live bands ever» and The New York Times has used the words «extravagantly good» while Rolling Stone speaks of the band's «shattering live performances.»
2008 saw the band regroup and the following year they toured the world with dates that included a slot at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago and All Tomorrow's Parties in the UK and upstate New York. No plans exist for any performances beyond this December slate.
