This week Found Tapes zooms back to 2009 and settle in for a bird's eye view of the Jesus Lizard's now-legendary reunion show at Nashville’s Exit/In.
The Jesus Lizard isn't just a band; for some people, their angular, genre-defining noise rock is a bonafide religion, with howling vocalist David Yow as the manic preacher heading up the revival. On July 14, 2009, the original lineup - David Yow, Duane Denison, David Wm. Sims, Mac McNeilly - joined forces for the first time in over ten years to summon forth that old magic and deliver a performance for the ages. It was the first show of their highly-anticipated reunion tour, and you could tell they felt like they had something to prove. It's messy, it's furious, it's sweaty and intimidating and above all, real. The set list focuses heavily on their vital Touch & Go material, too, which sure doesn't hurt.
When David Yow says "SHUT UP," you shut up!
