A day without a sweaty

First comes word of the Jesus Lizard reuniting in order to
play All Tomorrow’s Parties in England
in May (plus a Chicago
show next November). Now the good folks at Touch & Go inform us of a
special Jesus Lizard singles box set for April 18, Record Store Day. Details
from the label below….
From Touch & Go:
you have likely heard by now, the Jesus Lizard, known in some circles as the
greatest live band EVER, is reuniting the original line up to perform in 2009.
You may have also heard that April 18, 2009 marks the return of Record Store
Day, an event to support the independent record stores we know and love.
So we got to thinking…what better way to celebrate two things we wholeheartedly
believe in than by bringing them together? So with that in mind, we’re
excited to announce INCH from the
Jesus Lizard, a special release Touch and Go is offering up for sale on Record
Store Day only.
INCH is a collection of all the 7″
singles The Jesus Lizard released on Touch and Go, lovingly remastered by Bob
Weston and enclosed in a foldable clear plastic package, suitable for both
compact storage and bedroom wall display. Adding to the allure is the
fact that each 7″ has been out of print for over six years, so finding any one
single (let alone all of them) at a store has been near impossible. Also
included here is a 7″ of “Puss”, the Jesus Lizard’s side from the long-gone
split with Nirvana. Still not enough? INCH also contains the “Gladiator” single, originally given away
exclusively at a Jesus Lizard Brixton
Academy show in London back in 1992 and nowhere else.

2009. The band is set to perform at ATP: The Fans Strike Back festival in
on May 8-10. Additionally, the band has just confirmed another date in London on May 11th at The Forum. Ooh wee child, get your pads and cup ready because the real deal
is about to blast you like Jimmy
“Superfly” Snuka coming off the top turnbuckle.
More tour dates will be announced shortly as well as details on the catalog
