1001 7" Records You Must Own No.10 The Jesus Lizard & Nirvana - Puss / Oh, The Guilt
What i loved about this split single is not only does it contain the best Jesus Lizard song ever, but it also contains an exclusive Nirvana track which is also outstanding. Now fans of Nirvana's softer stuff would likely balk at this single, first you have Jesus Lizard screaming maniacally "Give Me Something to Stop the Bleeding" and other hard to understand warbling over a heavy as hell guitar pummeling. Then we move onto Nirvana with the excellent and screamy 'Oh, The Guilt' with a great stop start time rhythm, how it never got more radio play i'll never know, oh yeah it was released on an independent label, that might be why.
