After Austin-based Scratch Acid disbanded, caterwauling vocalist David Yow and bassist David Wm. Sims moved to Chicago, where they formed The Jesus Lizard and proceed to make a glorious racket throughout the 90s and beyond. Shot was their first major label release (for Capitol in 1996) and their first one without famed underground producer Steve Albini, but GGGarth (Melvins, L7) ably filled Albinis large shoes behind the board, cleaning up the sound a bit while losing none of The Jesus Lizards grungy, menacing mania (check out Thumbscrews and Skull of a German). For its first time on vinyl, were releasing Shot with a printed inner sleeve featuring lyrics and a fire orange with black streaks pressing limited to 2500 units worldwide!
