    Goat has almost double the listeners of Liar. That means half of JL fans are missing out.

    I have to admit, I was a bit frightened and confused by them at first, but I really have come to love these guys. Terrific, brutal, but often complex and tricky music.

    Noise rock is a vast genre, there are "strains" or sub-sub-genres within it that sound very different, consider that in the early '80s Flipper, Sonic Youth & Swans were all grouped as noise rock bands and they were linked by very few musical elements.

    Brainbombs aren't really a good comparison - They're more like Garage rock and they intended to combine the industrial/power electronics (ala Whitehouse) with a standard rock band format. Most Noise Rock doesn't sound like Brainbombs at all. Noise rock is the combination of standard rock structures with heavy dissonance, feedback and distortion, and Jesus Lizard has pretty much all of those things.
