Who's like The Jesus Lizard these days?


#1

The latest Pissed Jeans album has been a big let down for me. Who else is out there ripping off the lizard?


#2

these guys did/do it pretty well


#3

oxbow live in a similar world sometimes too


#4

That would be my go-to as their successor. They’re a bit slicker now though. The last Daughters album as well maybe?


#5

never actually heard them but my friend called young widows a daughters rip off :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#6

Naaaaaah! Daughters took quite a while to end up where they did (they were sort of…spazzy? to begin with), and by that time Young Widows were very well-established.


#7

that’s what i thought!


#8

#9

Good choice sir! Adult is a fucking wonderful album as well!


#10

I guess Kong had some of their spirit too.


#11

Good shout. I’ve seen them live a few times and the first thing I thought was that they clearly owed a lot to The Jesus Lizard.


#12

it certainly is!


#13

Some of Dillinger Escape Plan’s recent stuff has a hint of Jesus Lizard


#14

no it doesn’t


#15

Came here to say BLKLSTRS and that exact song. Saw them a few weeks back and they are great


#16

Pile sound a bit like The Jesus Lizard.

Anyone seen a brilliant anthology horror film called Southbound? David Yow is in one of the shorts. Took me a while to work out that it was him.


#17

Enjoyed this, cheers!


#18

He’s in that one I Don’t Want to Live in This World Any More or something. It’s on Netflix and really good. Directed by the main guy in Blue Ruin who’s best mates with Jeremy Saulinier


#19

Did you come to the show of theirs we put on? Almost blew the Wheatsheaf apart, so much fun.


#20

Yeah, I was there. It was awesome! Had to get up at 5am the next day to go to Newcastle though – not ideal!
