#musicmonday : The Jesus Lizard – Glamorous

A “Jesus lizard” is the popular name for a basilisk – or a genus of corytophanid lizards from Mexico – famed for their ability to run across water. David Yow has no such aptitude, except for an unnerving ability to make a racket.


I briefly met David Yow in the mid-90s. I remember wondering how someone so tiny could make quite so much noise. Isn’t that always the way with frontmen?

He’s 51 years old now. Don’t that make you feel old? And he’s still making a considerable racket.
