I’d Rather Be Anywhere Else

David Yow

This week’s video is a short documentary about David Yow (Scratch Acid, The Jesus Lizard, Qui, probably other things I’m forgetting). WordPress isn’t letting me embed it, but you can watch all 12 minutes of it here.

In the film, David talks about his fighter-pilot dad, frustrating experiences with the media, being an actor, and the public-access cooking show he talked about doing with Steve Albini. From the description:

In January 2010, Swiss noise band Ventura invited ex-Jesus Lizard frontman David Yow to Switzerland, to lend his voice for a few songs and to perform at the 10th edition of the Lausanne’s Burning Festival. During a whole week, we stuck to his boots trying to gather some untold elements from the man’s life.

It is true that The Jesus Lizard has made quite some noise in the last few months. The Touch’n’Go records standard-bearer reunited last May for a 41 gig-tour, which got them a fair load of media coverage, even though Yow confesses they “didn’t have anything to sell”.
