Pitchfork has a live clip of legendary Chicago noise-rock band The Jesus Lizard performing their song “Boilermaker” (from their album Liar) at the Venus de Milo in Boston way back in 1994. The footage is part of a new DVD being released next week by MVD Visual called “Live.” The DVD is an entire show of David Yow (regarded as one of the most awesomely confrontational lead singers ever to grace a stage) and company tearing shit up on stage and will be on video on June 5th.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with The Jesus Lizard, here is the Wikipedia page on the band. Below you’ll find several videos I have found posted on YouTube, of the band performing at Chicago’s The Vic Theatre in 1996. Best part is the beginning of the “Wheelchair Epidemic” video. You’ll know what I mean.
