The Jesus Lizard - Goat

The Jesus Lizard is a noise rock band created from the remnants of Scratch Acid. Although they never have achieved mainstream success, they were highly influential in the noise rock community and received heavy play on college radio stations. David Yow, the lead singer is known for being intoxicated on stage and removing clothing, sometimes being fully naked by the second or third song. The piercing guitar, pounding machine-like drums, and David Yow's intoxicated slur of vocals is what makes this band so great. Kurt Cobain was a fan of them and did a split, influencing the grunge community through noise rock. I'll probably up the split of Nirvana and Jesus Lizard sometime later along with all the other albums I promised(I'll get to them).
