"The gorgeously crafted, 176-page hardcover Book...dives deep and candidly into the Jesus Lizard's first decade and touches a bit on that 2009 coda, too. Through many thousands of words, hundreds of photos, and collected ephemera, it celebrates the sweat, menace, humor, musicianship, lasting power, and genitals of one of the best bands ever coughed up by the rock underground."
--The Village Voice
"Book is a valuable document that brings us back to the era when artists were conditioned to practice the art of self-defense."
"A series of essays and photos that illuminates the Jesus Lizard--humorous, jolting, sometimes surprisingly moving."
--The Chicago Tribune
"If there is any recurring theme within the 176 pages of the newly released The Jesus Lizard Book it’s this: The Chicago-grown noise rockers will be remembered as one of the greatest live bands to ever grace--or very well desecrate--the stage."
"The Jesus Lizard Book is a beautiful document of a band that wasn’t afraid to be abrasive, chaotic, brutal, and sometimes, ugly."

"The Jesus Lizard Book by The Jesus Lizard (out now). Much like Dinosaur Jr., the band has created a detailed, full-color hardcover for its fans. And as a bonus, members are reuniting to promote it at South by Southwest and elsewhere."
--Pensacola News Journal
"Imagine a round table discussion with the Jesus Lizard in a dark bar drinking all afternoon, listening to all the war stories."
"Book is FULL of cool shit: silly pictures, lots of stories, full band member auto-bios, and the band's narrative."
--The Stranger Slog
"The only way to truly do this band justice in book form is with exactly the kind of energetic and engaging visual weight that Book provides."
--KGB Bar Lit Magazine
"There is finally a book that captures the godhead megalithic monstrosity that was the Jesus Lizard. ... know this is going to be one of my favourite books of all-time."

"The deluxe coffee-table book about The Jesus Lizard that we can't believe exists."
