HASH(0x9002be88) étoiles sur 5 Led Zeppelin reimagined as dissonant jazz-punk nightmare 26 janvier 2015
Par Victor - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
OK it's been more than 20 years since the Jesus Lizard's run of classic albums on Touch & Go and it's about time that we stop discussing their music using esoteric genre signifiers (like "art punk", "noise rock", "alternative metal" etc) and just take them for what they truly of the best (and nowadays sadly overlooked) hard rock bands to ever come out of the USA.

The Jesus Lizard is kind of like what would happen if you took the mightiest of all hard rock bands, tied them up in a basement with no light, little ventilation and a bucket, and force fed them a diet of smut, cheap booze and contempt. Your showboating guitarist that lurvs his 20 minute wank marathons will experience ego death and discover the brilliance of economy and how to write riffs that somehow blend rockabilly menace, industrial noise, jazzy dexterity and metal oomph. The drummer and bassist will band together to forge an escape plan, eventually achieving a symbiotic existence as the tightest, most razor-sharp rhythm section in the history of ever. And your stereotypical golden maned god singer..oooh boy. Now he's a drunken lecher who's grown a pot belly and bald spots and has no need to hide his base impulses behind bluesy cliches and lovey-dovey platitudes...he'll just scream broken, disturbing ramblings in your face, probably while he humps you. Oh and "caretaking" this lot is an expert record ahem engineer who's carefully miked the basement to get the purest, clearest hi-fi field recordings of the madness.

All of their records up to and including "Shot" are masterpieces (even their b-sides, included in the reissues as bonus tracks), but their two first releases are probably still the best way to start, and my personal favorites. "Pure" (included here as bonus tracks) takes the screechy formula of previous industrial hate-punkers Big Black and improves it mostly by dint of having Duane Denison on guitar. His expertly timed riffs/solos/licks/bursts of noise sound kinda like a nail going into your ear and hitting your auditory g-spot, over and over again. Things somehow got better and in the best way possible, when they untied Mac Mcneilly and let him play drums. His release went a long way into making "Head" the swampy, rhythmically gonzo wonder it is.
Just oodles upon oodles of sick sounding, dynamic and oddly timed ("7 vs 8") tunes. They even bothered to throw in an oddly beautiful "ballad" and a dangerously propulsive classic punk medley in just for the hell of it.

So if I were you, that person who thinks that good rock music is supposed to be menacing, evil and impossibly badass sounding, I'd be seeking out this release along with the other, aforementioned JL classics right this instant. Why all of them? Because once you get the taste for this kind of goodness you'll wanna get them all, trust me. But still, for the more faint-hearted of you out there, I guess there's no better entryway to start exploring the sick, sick sick world of the Jesus Lizard, one of the best, most exciting rock bands ever, than this here puppy.

HASH(0x900510f0) étoiles sur 5 Noise. Yes! 9 novembre 2009
Par Daniel Stout - Publié sur

This remastered version of Head and Pure sounds great. It pops! The Jesus Lizard, of course, are one noisy band, and this CD is meant to be played loud. Pure was their first EP, and Head was their first full-length album. Classic material that sounds better today than it ever did. Some people feel Head is the best Jesus Lizard album, and they might be right. But you should also check out the other remastered discs -- Goat, Down, and especially Liar (Deluxe Remastered Reissue). This CD is especially interesting because there's stuff here that sounds like nothing else they recorded. A song like "Blockbuster" is totally unique and memorable. It stays with you. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x900510b4) étoiles sur 5 The Sleaziest. The Best. 28 décembre 2012
Par blue - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
One of my favorite albums of all time, HEAD is the best Jesus Lizard album by far. Raw and just dripping with sleazy, grimy debauchery. "If you had Lips" has the most dizzying guitar fills of any song. Yow is sooooo deranged on this album. This whole album feels like a two-week bender of the most nauseating kind.
The PURE EP is okay. Sorta blah. I think the drum machine makes it feel a bit dated but this is the only album you get to experience that, so.... "Blood Mary" makes it PURE worthwhile.

"Head," of the four Touch And Go releases, really benefits the most from being remastered -- and maybe this is obvious, since it's the oldest and documents the band still forming their signature sound and honing their songwriting. But the sound really jumps out! Opening track "One Evening" has some vocal growls and other sounds in it I had never noticed before. It's great to hear this seminal record with so much texture and depth.

As with the previous CD version, the "Pure" E.P. (which predates drummer Mac McNeilly; the band instead relies on an Alessis drum machine to supply their stuttering rhythms) is bundled together with "Head." "Pure" was the bands actual debut, with its slightly electronic/clinical studio sheen giving quite a different listening experience to live favorites like "Bloody Mary" and "Blockbuster."

It could be said that the 3 bonus tracks on "Head" are the slightest offerings of the reissue series, but then no fan should be without the "Chrome" medley, a burning pit of noise with tribal, stomping drums and Duane Denison's razor-like guitar burning out an abrasive proto-punk riff. The other two live tracks were previously available on the "Lash" triple 7-inch, great readings of "Killer McHann" and "Bloody Mary," with McNeilly very present and in fine form.

HASH(0x900518ac) étoiles sur 5 Notes 18 février 2011
Par A Dinosaur-Shaped Car - Publié sur
Format: CD
- This is the best studio translation of the band's live performance, which took the liveshow-as-a-religious-ritual philosophy of The Stooges and The Birthday Party to its logical conclusion.

- "Good Thing" is the ultimate subversion in rock music: a sex song without the sleaze or machismo or even the romance, looping it into something that doesn't even really seem like a sex song at all.

- In its own seedy way, the album's atmosphere is about as hazy, layered and abstract as My Bloody Valentine's Loveless, but through subtle methods executed in one take (unconventional song structures, David Yow drifting in and out of coherency, bizarre chording, palm muting and use of harmonics) rather than just smearing pedal effects everywhere.

- The only word I can think of to describe Duane's guitarwork is "swashbuckling." They're like riffs an unusually talented pirate would come up with.

- Yow always came up with melodic and nuanced vocal patterns, it's just that rather than playing them straight he skirted the edges, snarling, moaning & gurgling through them and letting your dumb mushy brain sorta "fill in the blanks." His rhythmic swagger is like a mutant take on 50s rock, and his lyrics are like redneck Baudelaire.

- That winding tremolo picked bridge in "If You Had Lips" makes it obvious that TJL could have been the best metal band on earth if they wanted to, but instead they chose to be the best rock band.

- The Pure EP is strange but not bad. It's like a better version of Big Black.
