Lost Goat - Equator



Allow me to introduce you to Lost Goat, as I'm sure many of you have never heard of them. They are a virtually unheard of band, yet they are extremely talented and unique.

Lost Goat is a power trio featuring Erica Stoltz on bass/vocals, Eric Peterson on guitar, and Tina Gordon on drums. If you could somehow mesh the sound of Black Sabbath, Megadeth, and Joan Jett, the result might sound something like Lost Goat.

I'm very apprehensive when it comes to female lead singers in rock because I feel that many of them try too hard to sing melodic, instead of cutting loose and letting a bit of soul out. Fortunately that's not the case here. Erica Stoltz is an amazing vocalist and serves up just the kind of dirty rock and roll that I love. Oh, and did I mention that she's an amazing songwriter and bass player as well?

Eric Peterson and Tina Gordon are amazing musicians in their own right. Peterson executes every note and riff on this album flawlessly. He mixes up his sounds well, going from fuzzy, to whining, to straight up pulse pounding riffs at the drop of a hat. Gordon's drumming is excellent and a perfect compliment to the heavy guitar riffs of Peterson, and vocals of Stoltz.

Equator is nothing less than an amazing album in my opinion and is definitely worth checking out if you're not familiar with the band.

Track List:
1. Doin' Time
2. Bitter Pill
3. Downbound Train
4. White Dog/Purple Pussy
5. The Dirty Ones
6. Poison
7. Hell In Ruin

I'm glad you liked it. I noticed that this album didn't get very many downloads in comparison to the other albums I posted, which is a real shame. I don't have Trapped on Earth, but I'll see what I can do about finding it.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

Great Album - The Dirty Ones is also a wonderful album in my opinion.

I saw them in S.F. and in Milwaukee. Amazing live (which you just know by hearing their albums right?)

There's a loose Acid King connection if you haven't checked them out yet.

Just found your great blog. Thanks!
