Review - Bang

The press release for "Bang" touts U.S. underground indie darlings the Jesus Lizard as the '90s greatest live rock & roll band. Having witnessed their monstrous, bourbon-fueled act numerous times, I'd say they could easily be the '90s greatest rock & roll band, period. "Bang" represents a solid and favorable testimony to the late band's musical prowess.

From the covers of songs by Chrome, Trio and the Dicks, to live versions of "Gladiator" and "Monkey Trick," to the Lizard's own (literally) over-the-top "7 Vs 8" and "Mouth Breather," "Bang" gathers previously released material off of 7-inch singles plus a few unreleased goodies recorded before the band called it quits last year. This is the last Jesus CD, unless, of course, we have a second coming.
