Default Live Skull

Very good experimental band that released albums through Homestead and Caroliner throughout the 80s. Their style incorporated Post-Punk, Industrial, Noise Rock and No-Wave influences to create a sound somewhere between early Sonic Youth and Swans, with a little TJ&TJ thrown in too.

Bringing Home the Bait should be anyone's first port of call with these guys, Dusted's great too.

Bringing Home the Bait is the shit, if you don't like it I'll make a hat, then eat it.

I've been a Live Skull fan since the late 80's, and I still listen to them pretty often. I wish Bringing Home the Bait, Cloud One, and Live Don't Get Any On You would be released on CD. I have them on vinyl, and Dusted and Positraction on CD. I actually have their first EP (self-titled) on cassette and I don't even own a cassette player anymore.
