LOT LIZARDS: Self-titled: 10”

Furious lo-fi fuzz and caterwauling out of jolly old London town. Bears some resemblance to Black Time, but Lot Lizards is less sludgier and with just a guitar, drum kit and, on some songs, an organ, they’re a bit lighter on their feet. The second side is a little more tuneful than the first with some interesting arrangements on “Dead Girls” that culminates with a long wedge of silence. “Dysfunctional Agenda,” the instrumental that follows, makes the package poignant somehow.
