From punknews (http://www.punknews.org/article/51383/the-jesus-lizards-david-yow-announces-solo-debut):

"I was out dancing through the filthy streets of Chicago when I ran into a fella who goes by the name of Mike [Patton]. He grabbed me violently by my dry and flakey shoulders and screamed at the top of his carbon flavored lungs, "YOU'RE MAKING A SOLO RECORD AND I'M PUTTING IT OUT WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT!" He was right about the first part. I rented a saxophone for 2 months, I borrowed some guitars and some drums, I rummaged through the kitchen, I squeezed a fat cat, I poked and prodded and ended up with my very own music. It's real good, if you like that kind of shit. I named it after a spider I saw one night."

David Yow, actor, visual artist and frontman of The Jesus Lizard has announced his first solo album. The record is titled Tonight You Look Like a Spider and is due out June 25, 2013 via Joyful Noise. Along with the normal vinyl and digital releases, Yow is putting together a limited edition which includes a large block of cement.

RAD. But I don't have room to start collecting cement blocks so I'm going to have to opt for the standard edition.

you could build a sidewalk out of them, or a path to your garden. :bruce:

Shipping expenses, however, are going to be a bitch.

The crazy 'monolith' edition is sold out. No concrete for you.

Yow has also been doing stuff with Girl Against Boys but I don't know if there are any plans for the results.
