LETTERBAG

Thus spake the JL:

For the record, no member of the Jesus Lizard has ever claimed we were the best live band at the festival or in any other context. I'm sorry the editors fiddled with your piece, but isn't the vitriol a little over the top?

I've never seen Fucked Up, but I hear good things, so I'll be checking them out. I'm perfectly ready and willing to believe they might be the best live band at the festival. Then again, I always thought that best-this and best-that kind of hyperbole was kind of dumb, so I probably will just enjoy them, or not, and leave it at that.

Best regards,
David Wm. Sims
