the jesus lizard’s touch and go era albums remastered for 2009 by steve albini and bob weston. the cds are packaged in a deluxe digipack with a 14″x20″ double sided colour folder including never before seen photos and extensive liner notes by the band and by journalists who were there when it was all happening. the cd also includes bonus tracks. ‘head’ was the first full length album by the jesus lizard. the band was by now a very direct, laser guided unwavering bolt of light. the guitars are bracing, bass bruising, drums galloping and vocals sounding as if sung from inside a leather mask. the cd also includes the ep ‘pure’. the ‘pure’ ep was the first ever record by the jesus lizard. ‘pure’ reveals an opening bone-crushing trifecta – ‘blockbuster’, ‘bloody mary’ and ‘rabid pigs’, which became classics in the jesus lizard’s cannon, featuring some of the band’s most endearing characteristics: duane denison’s guitar frenzy, david yow’s garbled vocal hysterics and david wm sims’ uncanny precision on bass. the cd also adds ‘chrome’ and two live tracks.
