The Jesus Lizard
“(Fly) On (The Wall)” b/w “White Hole”
Touch and Go

Two more songs from a band that can do no wrong. “(Fly) On (The Wall)” is pure Jesus Lizard grind, slow and pulsating, with riffage you’d find on other songs such as “Then Comes Dudley,” “Whirl,” or “7 vs. 8.” The arty, experimental “White Hole,” recorded in an underwater echo chamber with sperm whales ringing in the guitar parts, will leave fans scratching their heads, tummies, kneecaps, and various other body parts. The song is unlike anything the band has ever done. Get it!
