Date added: 10/09/2013 Announcing: The Jesus Lizard Book, Unreleased 7" & David Yow DVD/CD
Published by Akashic Books, The Jesus Lizard Book is a massive, beautifully assembled coffee table book of exclusive photography, art, and other imagery with written pieces by all four members of the seminal indie rock band The Jesus Lizard. In addition to the amazing 175 pages, the book contains a signed bonus 7" featuring two previously unreleased Jesus Lizard demos.
Earlier this year David Yow released his debut solo album Tonight You Look Like A Spider on limited edition vinyl. Now in conjunction with The Jesus Lizard Book, Yow's solo album will see a release on CD w/ a brand new DVD. Included on the DVD is the epic short film "Five Directors' Interpretations of Opening Suite". The film is set to the 5-part opening track from Yow's solo album. Five different directors each contribute a different "movement" of the song. These directors are: Adam Harding, Tim Rutili, Jared Varava, Todd Adam Phillips, & Jennifer (Jen) Lynch.
Both of these releases are available in one package. This limited edition package includes the following items:
-- A hardcover copy of THE JESUS LIZARD BOOK.
-- Limited edition 7" record, pressed on gold vinyl, hand-numbered out of 475 copies, signed by all four original members of the Jesus Lizard. Features two previously unreleased Jesus Lizard demos ("Elegy" and "Fly on the Wall" from the 1994 John Loder sessions). The 7" is *exclusive* to the book preorder and will not be made available for sale anywhere else. (Note that the 7" and sleeve will be bound inside of the book.)
-- A limited edition illustration by David Yow, signed by Yow himself.
-- David Yow DVD/CD combo package featuring "Five Directors' Interpretations of Opening Suite" video, "Making Monoliths" video, & full album of "Tonight You Look Like A Spider".
