The Jesus Lizard's Goat album sounds as fresh (and pissed off) as it did when it first was released in 1991. It's the kind of record that everyone from noise rock weirdos to hardcore punk purists to doom rock believers all can agree on. 

It's no surprise the folks at Wax Donut Records busted their asses off to compile a tribute LP in its honor. Wax Donut Presents: Goat features a collection of bands from around the world including Night Goat, The Kronk Men, Neon Kittens, and Bovine Nightmares covering the influential early '90s album.

“The Jesus Lizard is indisputably one the most important punk rock bands in history,” states Wax Donut Records head Morey Straus. “I hesitated on whether to take on something so ambitious, but I am very happy with the end result. This isn’t a replacement for Goat; this is a new way to enjoy the songs you know and love.”

Today, No Echo is premiering two tracks from Wax Donut Presents: Goat: Trigger Cut taking on "Mouth Breather" and Wipes' version of "Seasick." You can also check out the previously released covers by Sinking Suns and Prosthetic Bung:

Trigger Cut’s Ralph Schaarschmidt writes, “‘Mouth Breather’ by the Jesus Lizard was and is one of my favorite songs and it was warmly welcomed. Of course, we had to make our own interpretation -- rough and hard.”
On their rendition of “Seasick,” Wipes’ Ray Gurz states, “It was over in just three tries for a live recording. My inner David Yow came out on vocals a few weeks later after I became obsessed with this track.

"Listening to ‘Seasick’ every morning in the middle of the night on my way to work. It was like David Yow was riding shotgun in my vehicle as I was driving us. I approached the vocals as the only way I know how; Let it all out and do not hold back. We are pretty happy with the results.”


Wax Donut Presents: Goat is now open for pre-order exclusively through Wax Donut Records as a very limited Orange/Black Smoke 12” LP (pre-order now).

Digital downloads will be available as singles from each of the individual bands and all songs are expected to appear on streaming services as well.
