The Peel Back: Jesus Lizard "Down" (1994, Touch & Go Records)
In the earlier 90's David Yow was as big as they in Chicago. If it wasn't that Corgan guy, Yow would have been the biggest. However, their type of Noise Rock never really translated to bigger audiences. Perhaps it was the quality of the vocals on their recordings. They always sound distant and muffled. Yet, I don't think the big stage was really the point or the goal of Jesus Lizard. In 1994, the recorded their last album for Touch & Go Records before signing to Capitol Records, and it was one of their finest.
