Austin Lounge Lizards public service vid

Monday, November 24th, 2008

The Austin Lounge Lizards have a new song and video for the Consumers Union. This one is about credit card reform.

They did one a few years ago called “The Drugs I Need” – it’s a scream. And it deals with an important issue, too.

If you’re not already a fan of the Austin Lounge Lizards, do yurself a favor and check ’em out. I was hooked from the first time I heard their CD Lizard Vision, which included their own “Jesus Loves Me (But He Can’t Stand You)” and a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Brain Damage.” A sampling of song titles from their catalog:

The Dogs, They Really Miss You
Toast the Earth with ExxonMobil
Banana Slugs! Racing Down the Field (Proposed UC-Santa Cruz Fight Song)
Forty Years Old And I’m Livin’n In My Mom’s Garage
Rasputin’s HMO
Stupid Texas Song
Leonard Cohen’s Day Job
Teenage Immigrant Welfare Mothers on Drugs
Put the Oak Ridge Boys In The Slammer
Going to Hell in Your Heavenly Arms
Grandpa’s Hologram

One of my most favoritest of all the Lizards’ songs is “Pflugerville,” but the title doesn’t do it justice. You just have to hear it. It’s on Creatures from the Black Saloon.
