Austrlian band which was influenced by the likes of Birthday Party and Stooges. Throughout years, there were various incarnations of the band, with lead singer Stu Spasm (born Stuart Grey) being the only original member.  They split in 1990, because Spasm was stabbed in Berlin.  Later, he created short-lived Crunt with his then-wife Kat Bjelland (Babes In Toyland) and resurrected Lubricated Goat, once he divorced her.  The new band included an all-star line-up of members of Cop Shoot Cop, Railroad Jerk and Motherhead Bug – together they produced “Forces You Don’t Understand” in 1995.  2004 “The Great Old Ones” included new versions of old Crunt and Lubricated Goat songs and featured Jack Natz (Cop Shoot Cop, Red Expendables, Black Snakes) handling bass/vocal duties.
