I’m buried in e-mails today asking to confirm the news. We just couldn’t help ourselves. The Jesus Lizard are going to play some shows in 2009. It’ll be the original four members, including the tallest elf and drummer, Mac McNeilly. The only thing that’s confirmed right now is the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in the UK. Other shows are being booked in the US for the summer and fall of 2009.
There is a blurb in Pitchfork, which also give some information about the rerelease of the first four Touch & Go albums on CD and vinyl, and some links to MP3s.
Touch & Go is also putting together a package of all the Touch & Go 7″ vinyl 45s in April, 2009 for Record Store Day.
