Before shutting down shop a few weeks ago, Woody's South received an unexpected patron at a Jazzus Lizard performance. Legendary Scratch Acid and Jesus Lizard bassist David Wm. Sims stopped by while in town visiting family and was so impressed with the jazz tribute band that he offered to produce the Lizard's album, if/when they record one. "He thought we were taking a really interesting approach with some of the song structures," says Jazzus drummer Snoopy Melvin, who adds that the quartet is incorporating a few Scratch Acid tunes into its repertoire. "One of the things he mentioned was getting the songs on a movie soundtrack so that all of us would be set."
