The Dead Milkmen - Big Lizard In My Backyard
when i was in junior high i started a band with a friend. I listened to The Cure & Pixies. He listened to KISS and 80s hair metal. The one band we loved together were The Dead Milkmen.
Our sound took many cues from them. You can hear the influence in our big hits "egg nog" and " shit...dog shit".
I think people try to easily dismiss the Dead Milkmen, but guitarist Jack Talcum & bassist Dave Blood crafted beautiful melodies.
If you aren't lovin this album halfway thru track 2 "Beach Song" then i hate your stupid face, stupidface.
