Jesus Lizard, The - Rocking reptile

How did Jesus Lizard get the band name - Basilisk - jesus christ lizardThere are those who say that the name of this alternative rock band from Austin, Texas is due to the existence of a Spaniard, Jesus Lizardos, who was kind enough to agree that his name - somewhat anglicised – was used as a pop group name.

But it is more likely that the name is a reference to the Jesus Lizard, one of the most spectacular water runners out there on this Earth.

The little animal uses his hind legs to run when hunting for prey or escaping pursuers.

Active: 1987-1999; 2008-present, USA
