Particularmente o TBTCI aguardava ansiosamente a oportunidade de contactar o Black Lizard, porque a história de adoracão iniciou na compilacão Reverb Conspirancy que saiu ano passado pela melhor gravadora da atualidade a Fuzz Club Records, dentre maravilhas contidas no album, uma deles chamou de cara minha atencão, o Black Lizard, e daí mais um EP pela Fuzz também seduziu o TBTCI a ponto de audicões ininterruptas e o inicio do fanatismo comecou, e agora depois de meses passados o TBTCI e Fuz Club estreitaram o relacionamento e isso facilitou o acesso ao homônimo album que saíra dia 05 de abril próximo, e o album é guitarras, citaras, mellotrons, sintetizadores, causando uma grandiosa obra de psicodelia digna de fazer corar os mestres Anton Newcombe e Peter Kember, e não a toa o album foi masterizado pelo próprio mestre Sonic Boom, daí meus amigos eu simplesmente aconselho, virem-se, comprem o disco, não importa o debute do Black Lizard tem que estar presente em sua casa.
Joni guitarra e dono dos sintetizadores da banda é fã do TBTCI acreditem!!!!!! E o TBTCI é fã do Black Lizard daí, entrevista na certa.....
