Touch and Go Records / The Jesus Lizard

This week venerable Chicago indie Touch and Go Records announced they will cease to release new music. This sucks... I grew up on T&G - they held an ethic that was second to none. No contracts with bands, just handshake, 50/50 deals. They released amazing records by Big Black, The Butthole Surfers, Girls Against Boys, Slint, The Jesus Lizard and countless others.

Please check out Pitchfork this week as they are offering a full concert video of The Jesus Lizard live from 1994. I had the privilege of seeing the band live many times (AMAZING) and even appeared as an extra in one of their music videos. Viva David Yow! Check it out HERE
