Some ten years after they called it a day, the glorious noise rock clusterfuck they call the Jesus Lizard will reconvene for a series of shows next year. Yep, all of 'em: the classic lineup of David Yow, Duane Denison, David Wm. Sims, and Mac McNeilly will hit the road on what the band's label Touch and Go calls a "fleeting reunion."
The only date announced thus far is an appearance at the All Tomorrow's Parties' "The Fans Strike Back" fest in Minehead, England the long weekend of May 8-10, though we're told things will come crashing down with a grand finale in the band's hometown of Chicago in November.
Come May, the band's first four albums-- Head, Goat, Liar, and Down-- will be released on CD and vinyl in newly remastered form. Bob Weston is heading up that process, with original engineer Steve Albini sitting in.
