Biography

Lubricated Goat was an Australian noise rock band of the 1980s. They achieved brief notoriety for playing on a television program naked, with only their instruments. Mainly influenced by bands like The Stooges and The Birthday Party, they are credited for playing a grimy, confrontational style of rock which preceded grunge and 1990s noise rock.

Lubricated Goat was formed by Stu Spasm (real name Stuart Grey). Spasm had previously been in bands such as Singing Dog with Nick Barker, and Salamander Jim with Tex Perkins. Upon returning from England, Spasm went to Perth to visit with Singing Dog drummer Brett Ford who was then playing in The Kryptonics with Peter Hartley.

While in Perth, Stu recorded side one of what later became the Plays The Devil’s Music EP at No Sweat Studios with Ford and Hartley. Side two was recorded in Adelaide on a 4-track with drummer Martin Bland (Bloodloss/Salamander Jim).

Lubricated Goat signed to Red Eye Records offshoot Black Eye Records. The band soon relocated to Sydney where Stu met Guy Maddison of the Greenhouse Effect (now in Mudhoney) and offered him the opportunity to play bass for Lubricated Goat. The majority of the band lived on Cleveland Street in an old run-down three-story mansion which was soon dubbed “Gracelands.” The house was a creative haven for musicians and artists that were known to host art shows and nude discos.

    Random find in 2010. Still one of my all-time favourite bands, even if I'm not really into noise rock anymore.

    Although "Plays The Devil's Music" and "Paddock Of Love" fucking slay, it should be noted that their current incarnation is the worst abomination I've ever had the misfortune of seeing live. They had fucking "sexy" very unsexy undead dancing Santa girls... ooof. It made my skin hurt.
