Many people who know of David Yow think of him as the lead singer of seminal ‘80s punk band, Scratch Acid. Even more know him as the notoriously unhinged madman lyricist for Chicago noise-rockers, the Jesus Lizard. What most people do not know about Yow is that his acting prowess is in the same league as his onstage wanton charisma. He has shown that he can embrace a variety of different roles, and attack them with whatever amount of ferocity is needed. In the last several years, Yow has been repeatedly sought out by directors to appear in their films. Recent co-star credits include “Fully Loaded” (2011), directed by Shira Piven & executive produced by Adam McKay; and “Al’s Beef” (2008) starring Dean Stockwell and Jordan Ladd.
