The son of a fighter pilot, David Yow spent his prepubescent years moving from continent to continent with his family, eventually landing stateside in Austin, TX. He began stage acting in high school, but soon after, punk rock beckoned. Feisty young David couldn't resist the call: In the mid-80s, Yow sang for the seminal post-punk band, Scratch Acid, and later earned notoriety as "unhinged" lyricist and frontman for The Jesus Lizard. He has since turned his attention back to the field of acting. In the last several years, Yow has been repeatedly sought out by directors to appear in their films. Co-star credits include "Fully Loaded," executive produced by Adam McKay, and "Al's Beef," starring Jordan Ladd and Dean Stockwell.
