Killer Jesus Lizard box set coming.. one day only…
As you have likely heard by now, the Jesus Lizard, known in some circles as the greatest live band EVER, is reuniting the original line up to perform in 2009. You may have also heard that April 18, 2009 marks the return of Record Store Day, an event to support the independent record stores we know and love. So we got to thinking…what better way to celebrate two things we wholeheartedly believe in than by bringing them together? So with that in mind, we’re excited to announce INCH from the Jesus Lizard, a special release Touch and Go is offering up for sale on Record Store Day only.
INCH is a collection of all the 7” singles The Jesus Lizard released on Touch and Go, lovingly remastered by Bob Weston and enclosed in a foldable clear plastic package, suitable for both compact storage and bedroom wall display. Adding to the allure is the fact that each 7” has been out of print for over six years, so finding any one single (let alone all of them) at a store has been near impossible. Also included here is a 7” of “Puss”, the Jesus Lizard’s side from the long-gone split with Nirvana. Still not enough? INCH also contains the “Gladiator” single, originally given away exclusively at a Jesus Lizard Brixton Academy show in London back in 1992 and nowhere else.
“Chrome” b/w “7 vs 8”
“Mouthbreather” b/w “Sunday You Need Love”
“Wheelchair Epidemic” b/w “Dancing Naked Ladies”
“Gladiator” (live) b/w “Seasick” (live)
Lash 3×7” containing
“Glamorous” b/w “Deaf as a Bat”
“Lady Shoes” (live) b/w “Killer McHann” (live)
“Bloody Mary” (live) b/w “Monkey Trick” (live)
“(Fly) On (the Wall)” b/w “White Hole”
This collection of singles is merely the first thing to hit from the Jesus Lizard in 2009. The band is set to perform at ATP: The Fans Strike Back festival in England on May 8-10. Additionally, the band has just confirmed another date in London on May 11th at The Forum. Ooh wee child, get your pads and cup ready because the real deal is about to blast you like Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka coming off the top turnbuckle.
More tour dates will be announced shortly as well as details on the catalog reissues.
