The Jesus Lizard on a long-awaited reunion tour.

The band formed in Austin in 1987 by guitarist Duane Denison and vocalist David Yow, previously of Scratch Acid. Following its first EP, Pure, on the Chicago label Touch and Go in 1989, the group released a hard-hitting run of Steve Albini-produced records including Head, Goat, Liar and Down. They left Touch and Go for Capitol and released two more albums, Shot and Blue, and another EP before disbanding.

During their run, the Jesus Lizard earned a reputation as one of the fiercest live acts in the world. The photos from this show at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver, part of their 2009 reunion tour, show the reputation was well-earned.

    I was at that show and I remember it was one of the best shows I have ever seen. The place was packed and the band really put on a hell of a show. David yow was surfing like a maniac and at one point I had to catch him and I was like 20 feet from the stage. I wish this band would get back together and make some more music.

    Thanks for the comment, Aaron. Have you picked up the vinyl reissues? Pretty sweet.
