Gary Lucas’s Gods & Monsters


Well… demigods, maybe. Gary Lucas is certainly a monster guitarist who diverts Delta blues down countless acoustic and electric capillaries. The rest of the band consists of Television drummer Billy Ficca, Modern Lovers bassist Ernie Brooks, and former Talking Heads keyboardist Jerry Harrison, who also produced the band’s throbbingly intelligent third album, The Ordeal of Civility. Its fist-pumping anthems, easy swing, and horrorshow pogrom tunes should be on display tonight. With Vivisectors.
