Introducing the Austin Lounge Lizards' still-new album, Home and Deranged!
So ... Who are the Austin Lounge Lizards, anyway?
For 35 years, the Austin Lounge Lizards have been spoofing subjects such as politics, religion, romance, the music industry, and even themselves. The self-proclaimed "Most Laughable Band in Show Business" features pointed lyrics, precise harmonies and instrumental expertise. The Lizards are arguably the perfect pairing of their hometown’s slogan, “Live Music Capital of the World,” and its unofficial motto: “Keep Austin Weird.”
The Lizards are:
• Hank Card on rhythm guitar
• Darcie Deaville on fiddle and mandolin
• Conrad Deisler on guitar and mandolin
• Bruce Jones on bass
The Austin Lounge Lizards are five-time winners at the prestigious Austin Music Awards. Their version of Irving Berlin’s “C-U-B-A” was used in the Michael Moore film Sicko. The band has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and on the radio programs Mountain Stage, E-Town, and KPIG-FM's Please Stand By.
