LOT LIZARDS "Nightmare Creep" 7inch EP

With a Black Time association (nom de plume's Lemmy Caution recording/producing and Red Exposure contributing some spy organ lines) and being put out by the Yakisakana record label-A loud and riotous affair of Mod-punk poses thrown askew and finding the rump moving beat buried deep in some of the most unlikely of songs from the Fall is expected from the Lot Lizards and expectations are not let down.
"Nightmare Creep" kicks off the record with both something quite nightmarelike as well as creepy. Back-n-forth/up & down keyboard blasts blurt over a trash can drum beat, BFTG guitar fuzz and alienated bad attitude looking for a good time vocals. Following it is "Lot Lizards" which isn't so much of a theme song for the band but all call to arms of night dwellers looking for discordance, guts and blood instead of make-up, machines and roofies when out searching afterhours joints to haunt. Side two's "Liquor Store" culminates the entire feeling of late night drunkenness in a place where Pussy Galore man the turntables and crank the B-52's Wild Planet album and Times New Viking singles into constant redlinned raptures.
