The Jesus Lizard - Liar (1992) - “Boilermaker”
Every time I finish listening to this song I go into immediate withdrawal and find myself in an air drumming frenzy, humming the bass line to myself. This goes on for a minute or two until the itch gets too intense and I have go back and hear it again. I woke up late last night with the melody in my head, groped around a bit for my headphones, and happily fell back asleep to thick guitar noise, tight bass grooves, pounding drums, and David Yow’s spastic yelping. For a band well known for being so loud and calamitous, they can be catchy as hell, especially on this record.
