We have evidently ruined Jessica Hopper’s entire year by playing at the Pitchfork festival:
I saw the Jesus Lizard at least five times between the ages of 15-20, and my opinion (previously chronicled in Hit it or Quit it issues #3 and #4) still stands: a killer rhythm section and Yow furiously tugging on his own penis do not make for the best show I have ever seen. Not even top 50. I remember enjoying Rollins Band shows more than JL. The last time I saw JL, Tanner opened and were better. So, no, their reunion is not the highlight of my summer.
So, you’re saying we have a killer rhythm section, right? Cool. I think I missed that in my careful study of HIOQI issues #3 and #4. See ya at Fucked Up!
(hat tip: flux-rad, for the link, and for the slightly incoherent props for “refusing neo-classical economic models of sustenance.” Hell, yeah, we did! Jeez, Louise.)
