LIZARD SKYNARD
LIZARD SKYNARD
SELF-RELEASED

Fronted by sideshow performer Eric Sprague and featuring members of The Heavils, Lizard Skynard is an eclectic unit with an unorthodox musical delivery that is gutwrenchingly heavy yet completely left of center. Thanks in part to Sprague’s stream of consciousness spoken word style (liberally borrowed from Henry Rollins), this quintet rages out with artsy hardcore pretense that leaves welts on your brain. While some material on this eight-track offering can be written off as exercises in experimental overindulgence, cuts like “Ocean Electric” and “Space Eels” make up for the unevenness with musical output that is cohesive, creepy crawly and contagiously crushing.
