The Lizerds – S/T 7″


So here’s two great songs by The Lizerds. Is It Late? being a punker with some hints of HC. Amazing stuff in my book. Out Of My Hands is where the pop meets the punk to deliver a song just as great as the a-side but with a much less desperate touch. Hell yeah this rocks! You can read some stuff about The Lizerds here. Among the trivia is that Bruce Brink from The Rotters where in the band while recording these two scorchers. May the punk god be with you.

    The “A” side sounds like Void(DC), where the “B” side sounds like Mission of Burma…not bad. Thanks for this disjointed offering. It is a morsel to savor. On the with the show.

    Thanks for posting, this replaces the kinda crappy sounding cassette copy I’ve had of this for years. Not one of my all-time favorites but both sides are cool. Let me say, though, that if “Is It Late” did not have that raging guitar noise I think it would be a totally mediocre track. Erich is funny- $10- LOL! Multiply that by 50!

    Thanks for upping this. I played guitar and sang on Out Of My Hands. Recorded in a pizza parlor in Bakersfield in 1981, we wrote this in 1980. I can assure you this was Bako’s first punk record. I know, because I tried to get them to stock it – it’s not like there were so many record stores there that would carry this kind of stuff at the time.

    1000 originally pressed, 200 were shipped to San Francisco, 100 were distributed around Bako and the rest ended up in a land fill there somewhere. No reissues. As I recall, we used the same pressing plant that the Rotters had used.

    The second hundred shipped to San Francisco included a typed/Xeroxed lyric sheet. Thanks Bill Reynolds, if you are still alive.

    Glad it’s digital now so anyone who wants to hear it, can.

    Believe it or not, I’ve still got a few of the ones I included the lyric sheet with when I was at Berkeley…28 years ago…uuggh.

    Billy Magnet,you wil put these on eBay,in case you sell 1-2 copies at all,right?
    A place where the insert could be seen would be great,so I can sing along to my much-better likened “O.O.M.H.” -sorry,but “I.I.L.?” does not a thing for me.If you would not mind to send me a scan of the insert:
    SEE MY NAME ABOVE (at) mirhadi (dot) de
    would be very very nice from you!THANKS!

  13. The Flakes // Drummer says:

    Yeah would be really nice to see a scan of the lyric sheet Billy. If possible contact me at: info at kbdrecords dot com.

  14. sleep.dawg says:

    Billy Magnet, you old dawg. :)

    I already got scans of the lyric sheet from some collector in Singapore 10 years ago. I’d forgotten about that until he corrected me.

    Sent them off to you guys.

    Sleep.Dawg :
    I got a scan for the LIZERDS 7″ from you in my “inbow.
    Is it possible you sent the scan´s of it to many people ?
    Anyway thanks and once gain:
    NOT compiling their “OUT OF MY HANDS” song from the 7″´s 2nd side belongs to one of the bigger error´s in favour of the somewhat tuneless “Is it late?” one (in “Killed By Death” LP vol.12) IMO…
    thanks,Mr,Sleep Dawg !

  16. sleep.dawg says:

    Yup, sent it to you after I saw your post here. I also sent it to info@ for this site, per their request of Billy.

  17. BradLizerd says:

    We never did receive any money for the original sales of those singles. What did you do with it, Billy Magnet?

  18. Skillet Marimba says:

    I don’t think that’s Bruce on the drumbs… he should weigh in here.

  19. Skillet Marimba says:

    I stand corrected.
