ABC News Amplified: The Jesus Lizard

October 17, 2009

Mainstream media trying to wrap their haircuts around underground culture is my favourite thing in the world, probably because I get to feel all smug and snicker at the squares. See also: Punk and Emo: A study in moral panics.

Here’s a recent ABC News piece on The Jesus Lizard (taped next to the pool at Kutshers Country Club, by the looks of it), via Punk News.

It’s not that bad at all, actually. There’s a bit of, “Holy heck, look at these CRAZY ROCK AND ROLLERS!!” but it’s a nice little introduction for moms in Kansas. David Yow’s junk makes just two (obscured) cursory appearances.

Bonus: here’s another episode from the same series about another band I like a lot, who are “kinda like Green Day…”
