"...It's only fitting that the second coming of the Jesus Lizard follows in the wake of Scratch Acid's blistering return three years ago...."
"...The official rock & roll handbook states: "A famous frontman should never sing in a local tribute act based on his band's music." So what the hell is Jesus Lizard singer David Yow doing fronting the Jazzus Lizard, an Austin quintet that does jazz appropriations of the noise rockers' catalog?..."
"...Twine Time traveler Paul Ray famously said, “There hasn’t been any good music recorded after 1970.” The Jesus Lizard, Blue Öyster Cult, Scorpions – he would have haaated my hour of deejaying prior to his show this Saturday via a My KUTX segment, 6-7pm. I knew Paul Ray a little and was lucky to have gotten a “pass” decades ago from a man who suffered no posers...."
"...Malcolm Bucknall's falling dog is on the Jesus Lizard t-shirt I inherited from my ex-wife...."
"...The line-up marks a quantum leap from year’s past and easily parallels that of the Pitchfork Music Festival. Quite frankly, the names are a little overwhelming at first: The Jesus Lizard, Danzig, Flipper, Death, Ratatat, Of Montreal, Mission of Burma, No Age, and the Riverboat Gamblers..."

"...Scratch Acid's most direct descendant was the Jesus Lizard, formed in Chicago by Yow and Sims with guitarist Duane Denison and drummer Mac McNeilly. The Jesus Lizard parlayed their springboard from Scratch Acid's sound into a major label deal and a Lollapalooza slot in 1995..."
"...The Jesus LizardBang (Touch & Go) Here, in the mass grave of corpses left behind by 1999, lies the Jesus Lizard. Born in Austin, raised in Chicago, this martyred quartet of pious punk rockers died for your sins -- crucified by an indifferent and cruel alt.rock empire..."
"...LIZARD MUSIC: If you've ever suspected that Shannon Hoon didn't really OD, but merely devised an acceptable and permanent escape from Blind Melon, then I suggest you look for him in New Jersey. I think he's changed his name to Eric Paparozzi and is now fronting this very good, very arty punk band called Lizard Music, whose new World Domination release, Fashionably Lame, was recorded by Steve Albini..."
"...Following in the wake of Scratch Acid's scorching return two years ago (see "The Greatest Gift," Sept. 1, 2006), bastard offshoot the Jesus Lizard is reuniting its classic lineup – David Yow, Duane Denison, David Wm..."

"...Free admission, a prime Sixth Street location, and the fleeting image of punk as a pop culture juggernaut attracted many of the same people that probably would've crossed the street to avoid walking in front of the Cavity. The resulting bar revenue paid the guarantees of touring bands like L7, the Jesus Lizard, NoMeansNo, and the Didjits, whose fans in other cities had to pay $15 to see..."

"...About a month and a half ago the Chronicle's "Dancing About Architecture" column covered a civil case brought against Liberty Lunch and the Jesus Lizard by Austin resident Melissa Slepekis (Vol. 17, Nos..."
"...Not so with Michigan's Thrall. Chemical Wedding revels in repetitive motions that burrow their way through your inhibitions and drive the vocal polemics of former God Bully Mike Hard deep into left field. Thrall lays down thick, meaty slabs of rock-steady rhythm that evoke many a hot night with the Jesus Lizard..."
"...If Scratch Acid's David Yow seemed well-rehearsed gnashing his way through "Wheelchair Epidemic" with the Dicks last night at the Austin Music Awards, that's because the post-punk berserker is one of 29 songs the Jesus Lizard practiced in January in preparation for its upcoming reunion tour, which now includes a headlining spot at Austin's fourth annual fall classic, Fun Fun Fun Fest. "It came together relatively easy, but it didn't sound that great in the practice space," says Yow of the sessions..."
