Today on the Culture Creature podcast, we’re excited to bring you new interviews with David Yow and Duane Denison of The Jesus Lizard. Listen to the Jesus Lizard interview via the player above or in your podcast provider of choice.

The Jesus Lizard are a mighty, unstoppable force of nature. They are one of the best live bands of their generation due to their fusion of killer musicianship and unhinged, primal energy. The band released six LP’s of classic noise rock during its career, beginning with 1990’s Head and culminating with 1998’s Blue.

David Yow Interview

Frontman David Yow is known for his unpredictable live performances. In today’s Jesus Lizard interview, Yow says, “I kinda want to entertain, and when we’re done playing, I want the people who saw the show to think, ‘That’s the best fuckin’ show I’ve seen in nineteen years.’” You’ll also hear Yow discuss his film career, his appreciation for the work of David Lynch and Benecio Del Toro, and much more. 

Duane Denison Interview

On today’s episode of Culture Creature, you’ll also hear guitarist Duane Denison discuss his technique, his inspiration, and his band’s unique balance of chaos and control – or, as collaborator Steve Albini once put it, “the melding of the sublime and the profane.” Denison is responsible for some of rock’s most memorable and demented guitar compositions. He is also known for his work in the band Tomahawk (which includes Denison, Mike Patton, John Stanier, and Trevor Dunn).
