David Yow used to pull cookie dough out of his pants when he fronted Austin punks Scratch Acid in the ’80s. When he was in the Jesus Lizard, he broke his pelvis but the doctors couldn’t tell because the X-ray image was obscured by a fart cloud.

Yow currently fronts Qui, an L.A. avant-punk trio that recently played the fan-curated portion of All Tomorrow’s Parties in Somerset, England, offering for sale a limited-edition seven-inch titled The Little Golden Blanket. Here’s a track from the single, “Prison Braid,” an ode to everyone’s favorite behind-bars hairstyle.
