We Need Your Help for the Jesus Lizard Book.

Hey, folks, the Jesus Lizard is working on a book about the band that will be published by the excellent Akashic Books.  We know how much you people like pretty pictures, so we need cool  stuff like photos, posters, ticket stubs, etc.  to put around all the words.

If you have things you want to send in, you can scan the them and email them to TooBigToFailBlog-AT-gmail-DOT-com, or mail them to:

Akashic Books
232 Third Street, B 404
Brooklyn, NY 11215
USA

If you mail them, please write “Jesus Lizard book” prominently on the outside of the envelope.   Please indicate whether photos were taken by you or someone else.

    Hi David. I have a few cool photos of David Yow crowd surfing at Reading 94 right in front of me that would look good in yr book. How do i send them to you??

    Hey David-

    I hope all is well. I have quite a few pics from 1992(?) cross country tour with Brickbat. I’m sure James has some as well… I will scan and send them your way

    I hope included in the book is the story of Renner dancing naked at the Outhouse in Lawrence Kansas! I remember at the end of that night Duane asking me, “Does he do things like this every night?”

    Great news about the book!

    Cheers~

    Scott

    I have a poster from when the JL played Calgary in the mid-early nineties and a band called Placebo opened up for you; it was Feist’s first band.

  7. David Wm. Sims says:

    Soren: would love to see that. Please send it, if you can. Thanks.

    simsy baby!

    I look forward to a chapter devoted to tJL T-shirts… I have 4.
    Any chance of a DVD with the book containing all the official videos? Kinda sucks having to watch them all grainy on YouTube.

    Is there a deadline to this? I have a ton of photos but didn’t catch this ’til now

  11. David Wm. Sims says:

    cb: There isn’t a hard and fast deadline yet, but we’d like to get all the graphics together in the next couple of months. Send everything!
