No Control Radio Presents: Scratch Acid w/ When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth
Nicole's show pick for Saturday
DAILY Chron Events  December 9, 2011, by Nicole Wagner
"...We can enjoy alternative punk rock today because of the grit of Austin-born Scratch Acid and a handful of other Chicago bands. Formed in 1982 and split in 1987, members of Scratch Acid went on to became part of an impressive list of bands including Jesus Lizard, Sangre de Toro, Ministry, Helios Creed, the Didjits, Big Boys, Rapeman, and the Damnations...."

Bridge Farmers' Superior Acid Metal
Hawkwind and Sabbath didn't spawn the Austin trio, but they should have
Music Story  August 9, 2018, by Michael Toland
"...Combining Hawkwind's heaviest moments with Sabbath's spaciest, Bridge Farmers channel superior acid metal. Garett Carr's thundering basslines join Kyle Rice's percussive slam in support of Tyler Hautala's thickly layered riffs and hypnotic vocal drone..."

Playback – Typecast: David Yow & Brett Bradford
Scratch Acid and the Jesus Lizard in their new roles, plus a Twin Peaks themed concert
Music Column  September 20, 2018, by Kevin Curtin
"...Lead villain status ain't nothin' new for the noise rock marauder who spent the Eighties and Nineties crawling atop crowds as the frontman for Scratch Acid and the Jesus Lizard. Now a forthcoming wave of significant film roles raises the question: Is David Yow an actor or a musician?..."

Ain't That Love
Live review of Scratch Acid “reenactment” at Emo's East
DAILY Music  December 12, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...No truly great act ever thrived without it. Saturday at Emo’s East, the tension onstage in Scratch Acid translated into 80 minutes of Austin post-punk history revisited..."

Off the Record
Electric Lounge's second act on the Eastside, catching up with Scratch Acid and Austin's other Voice contestants
Music Column  September 9, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Scratch Acid's confirmation for the Jeff Magnum-curated All Tomorrow's Parties Festival in the UK this December has sparked a full stateside tour. "I seem to recall after our 2006 reunion someone in the band emphatically stating, 'We will never be playing again,'" relays guitarist Brett Bradford (see "The Greatest Gift," Sept..."

Dicks Hate Police, Love David Yow
Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid screamer headlines benefit
DAILY Music  September 30, 2013, by Kevin Curtin
"...David Yow, the notorious Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid frontman who lived in Austin from 1975-1988, returns to town to front local punk legends the Dicks, whose singer Gary Floyd remains in physical and financial duress as he recovers from multiple knee surgeries and deals with being evicted from his rent-controlled San Francisco home...."

Best of Austin Story  September 15, 2000
"...Mr. Coleman, a former member of the experimental noise group Liquid Mice and mad-scientist creator of the Mechanical Pit Bull that once (dis)graced the stage of the Letterman show, has been holed up in his foresty Bastrop sanctum for years now, creating such mind-blowing lingerie from wires and LEDs and acid-etched metal plates that his work's been featured in Playboy and on SNL alongside somewhat tamer creations by Helmut Lang and Jean-Paul Gaultier..."

Ken rants about moving under the Congress Ave. bridge.
Music Column  May 5, 2000, by Ken Lieck
"...Brett Bradford, ex of Scratch Acid (the band that brought you fine song titles like "Unlike a Baptist" and "Big Bone Lick"), and currently the heart of Sangre de Toro, tells us that former Scratch Acid drummer Rey Washam, fresh out of Ministry, is currently up in Chicago with other former Ministers working on recordings for a Swiss label (guess this delays that rumored Scratch reunion we've been looking for). Bradford mentions this because his current drummer Max Brody may replace Washam as skinpounder in the Al Jourgensen family..."

Spray Paint evolves classic ATX post punk
Music Story  February 21, 2014, by Chase Hoffberger
"...Dig just beneath the surface of Spray Paint's grinning skeleton and you'll find bones dating back to the earliest days of Austin punk, before When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth to Scratch Acid and Butthole Surfers. Hear Stephenson's style-to-be on 1984 Surfers' sludge anthem "Dum Dum" and the Jesus Lizard's "Sunday You Need Love." His kicks, tone, and presence hearken back to the former's Independent Worm Saloon standard "Strawberry," whose bassline Plump might lay down on his down-tuned six-string..."

Playback – SXSW: Zero Hour
SXSW started early this year, but now – as usual – everything hits at once
Music Column  March 14, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"...The Jesus Lizard, protean noise-rock practitioners born from the wreckage of Austin's Scratch Acid, whose unpredictable and often obscene performances made them one of the most remarkable acts of the Nineties, return to town this week, not for a reunion concert, but to promote their new coffeetable book...."

Playback: David Yow Meets the Jazzus Lizard
David Yow fronts the Jazzus Lizard, Cherubs knock off 22 years of rust, Preston Hubbard dies, and Blind Lemon Jefferson gets kicked off Texas license plates
Music Column  August 25, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...Yow, a maniacal performer who came up locally with Scratch Acid before becoming one of the Nineties' most notorious frontmen, commonly puts himself in unfamiliar situations. In 2013, he heroically channeled Gary Floyd at a Dicks benefit..."

Playback: New No Wave, Old Dicks, and Woody Allen
US Weekly emerges, the Dicks reunite, and Woody Allen casts Kat Edmonson
Music Column  August 11, 2016, by Kevin Curtin
"...The authors of oft-covered punk classic "Hate the Police" last played in 2010, with Davy Jones and Mark Kenyon filling in for deceased guitarist Glen Taylor. In 2013, the Dicks enlisted Jesus Lizard/Scratch Acid screamer David Yow, who calls Floyd "one of the best voices in punk rock history," for a local benefit after the frontman's multiple knee surgeries...."

Gypsy Son
Former Zeros front punk and True Believers co-captain Javier Escovedo circles back to Austin
Music Story  February 18, 2016, by Tim Stegall
"...Roping in fellow dishwashing rocker Jon Dee Graham, bassist Denny DeGorio, and former Scratch Acid dynamo Rey Washam, this triple-guitar army with advanced compositional smarts became Eighties Austin's most storied rock & roll contenders. Alas, one poorly promoted debut LP and an unreleased sophomore effort later, they'd become a dissipated legend, celebrated in their occasional reactivations...."

The Jesus Lizard Book
Zeppelinesque hammer of the gods
Music Story  May 29, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Goat, Liar, Shot – now Book. Austin punk's Adam and Eve, its Sex Pistols and Clash – the Dicks and Big Boys – begat armies of snarling acolytes blurring the line between first wave rage (Sharon Tate's Baby, Toxic Shock, Jerry's Kids), and post-punk (Butthole Surfers, Scratch Acid)..."

The new Kurt Cobain doc features music from some once-locals.
DAILY Music  September 11, 2007, by Austin Powell
"... The original score was composed by Steve Fisk, who produced Nirvana's 1989 Blew EP, and Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard, whose cover of Beat Happening’s “Indian Summer” is the only dud on an otherwise stellar mixtape, which also features the Butthole Surfers, Arlo Guthrie, Half Japanese, the Vaselines, Mudhoney, Iggy Pop, Leadbelly, and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Cobain’s meditations on Austin’s Scratch Acid, which preface “Owner’s Lament,” provide an interesting insight into his own artistic vision: "At that time hardcore was totally dead..."
