CD also includes Pure EP plus 3 bonus tracks. It can be said that the boyish charm of the Jesus Lizard was born in the grooves of HEAD.

"The guitars are bracing, bass bruising, drums galloping and vocals sounding as if sung from inside a leather mask.

At the time, they called this stuff 'college rock'. If Dinosaur Jr made music that sounded like your brain exploding and Nirvana made music that sounded like your family exploding, the Jesus Lizard sounded like homosapiens exploding-limbs torn asunder, flesh ripped from bone, faces on fire.

Yow's shrieks, Sims' wump, the flying shards of Denison and McNeilly - it was all spontaneously combustible.

It was only later that some were heard to proclaim that with the Jesus Lizard, Yow, Sims, Denison and McNeilly had gotten it Right.

- Pat Blashill After PURE, the Jesus Lizard unanimously agreed that replacing the drum machine with a live drummer was a must.

Vocalist David Yow suggested Mac McNeilly - and McNeilly's decision to join the band cannot be overstated.

The band was now a very direct, laser guided unwavering bolt of light. - Pat Daly
