5.0 out of 5 stars It's sure to tickle your crazy bone. January 20, 2004
By J. Ross
Format:Audio CD
Arf Arf! The Lizards have really outdone themselves. The fourteen tracks on their well-produced "Strange Noises in the Dark" show their influences (and ability to proficiently play) in the stylistic genres of Latin, western swing, Klezmer, bluegrass, folk, classic country, Gypsy jazz, rock, and even Bavarian yodel music. Bob Wills meet Frank Zappa! The ninth album from "the most laughable band in show business" is a guaranteed mirthquake.
For a little historical perspective, Hank Card and Conrad Deisler began writing songs together in 1976 when both were students at Princeton. The Austin Lounge Lizards originally formed in 1980 after the pair moved to Austin (to attend Univ. of Texas law school) and hooked up with banjo and dobro-player Tom Pittman. They began playing small clubs, and then won the 1983 Kerrville Bluegrass Festival band contest. They began touring nationally in 1987. Over the years of recording and touring, they've built a slew of fans who enjoy their wacky weirdness built largely upon satire and parody. Dr. Demento meets Bill Monroe. Appearance on NPR's Morning Edition have launched them to even greater heights. The Lizards will also make a showing on television in "Mostly True Stories - Urban Legends Revealed" on The Learning Channel. Their segment covers the Saguaro Legend about a guy who goes to the desert to shoot saguaro cacti until one falls and kills him. Honored as "Best None of the Above Band," on several occasions by the Austin Chronicle Reader's Poll, the Lizards have also won "Band of the Year" award at the Kerrville Music Awards three times since 1994. Where does guitarist Hank Card find the time to work as a part-time administrative law judge part-time for the State of Texas?

4.0 out of 5 stars Not their best, but far from the worst December 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
As a long time (ten years now) fan of the lizards I have to say that Strange Noises is a continuation of what makes them the funniest band around.
The title track is a tango that plays to every man's fear when it concerns ex-lovers.
We only fight continues Conrad's series of drinking songs with the added twist of a female duet.
Suzie Rosen's Nose is another Emily Kaitz gem. Although musically it reminds me of "illusion travels by stock car"
Why can't we Blow up Saddam is cute, but now no longer relevent. So Sad.
Phill & Jessie is another slam (deservedly IMO) at some republican politicians.
There is a lot to like here and I would love to know the origin of Merchant's Lunch and Bannana Slugs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds like chicken! August 31, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Lounge Lizards album. The music is tight, the parodies of different musical styles are impressive (including some very small little jokes thrown into various songs like "When I'm Cleaning Windows"), and the clever lyrics always bring a smile to my face. The directly political material is the weakest part, but even that is strong, especially the lovely coupling of Phil Graham and Jesse Helms in "Jesse + Phil". "Susie Rosen's Nose", "Tastes Like Chicken", and "The Lonely Yodeler" are classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything from rhinoplasty to eating dog food October 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This CD's a bit like Austin weather--if you don't like what's happening, just wait a minute and something else will come up. There's no taboo subject and no musical style that the Lounge Lizards won't try. I cannot compare this offering to their other CDs--this is the first full CD of the Lounge Lizards I've purchased; however, it will not be the last.
