Austin Lounge Lizards’ Latest Single Backed by New Video
Folk-rock-bluegrass-country quintet Austin Lounge Lizards (www.austinlizards.com), known for its snarky, satirical lyrics that spotlight and perforate and its awesome instrumental prowess, will release on June 23 a video single, “Too Big to Fail,” that takes on excesses of the new Gilded Age.
The video was produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker Steven Mims (www.stevenmimsfilms.com), who was also responsible for capturing for posterity in 2000 the Lizards’ 20th anniversary celebratory DVD, LIZARDS TIMES TWENTY.
“Too Big to Fail,” by Lindsey Eck, is from an album being worked on by the Lizards, whose all-boy band has been joined by two equally witty women. The group’s version of Irving Berlin’s “(I’ll See You in) C-U-B-A,” the Prohibition-era up-tempo tribute to the luxuries of the island nation from its 1991 live album, LIZARD VISION, was featured in Michael Moore’s 2007 “Sicko,” as a flotilla of ailing 9-11 workers seeks medical treatment in Cuba.
