Throwback Thursday Tracks: “Big Lizard in my Backyard” by the Dead Milkmen (1985)

dead milkmen - big lizard in my backyard

Today’s Throwback Thursday album is the Dead Milkmen’s debut album, Big Lizard in My Backyard, a collection of post-punk silly ditties, which unlike most “novelty” songs, bear repeated listening (especially Right Wing Pigeons, which should be the theme song of tonight’s Republican candidates’ debate). Big Lizard in my Backyard features Bitchin’ Camaro, which was on most of my personal mixtapes back in the ’80s, and still features prominently on my roadtrip playlists. Here’s the album…enjoy!
