Joy Division vs. the Jesus Lizard

Postby AnthonyVillalobos on Sat Nov 29, 2008 1:48 am

I recently had some friends over and we were having some drinks so I put "Goat" on the turntable.

Some random cockbags who were at my house had just got done watching the movie "Control" about Ian Curtis and Joy Division and had started to make comments that Joy Division is better then The Jesus Lizard.

I think the Jesus Lizard would've raped Joy Division into submission had the Lizard been formed back then.

I like Joy Division, but "Liar" and "Goat" are leagues better than "Unknown Pleasures" or "Closer" in my opinion.

what do you think?

The only Joy Division I can stomach is "Unknown Pleasure."

The Jesus Lizard spits and grovels all over Joy Division.

I own more records by the Jesus Lizard & my sperm count has exponentially gone up everytime I listened to "Thumbscrews" or "Seasick" & I think, as I have thunk before, that they were a fantastic band as mentioned countless times before, but for listening pleasure, I will probably opt for Joy Divsion over the Jesus Lizard, 89 times out a 100, a mixtape of Joy Division, that is.

This is a hard decision for me. I like them both a lot. If TJL was formed when joy division was, I would like them more because that would have been insane for that time. Joy division was pretty out of place for their time though. Both bands had a huge impact, in different ways. Fuck! Hard choice.

In my experience, "Monkey Trick" and "Karpis" sound as lonely and traumatic as anything Joy Division recorded.

Perhaps I don't know enough about Joy Division. I've got them lumped in with the Smiths and the Cure and other English gothy/new wavey bullshit high school girls listen to. I could explore further but there are a lot of records I want to hear, nothing from Joy Division has pushed them very far up the ladder of shit I need to check out.

The Jesus Lizard on the other hand fucking rule.

tJL were most certainly a better live band, but records matter more to me and Joy Division made more interesting records.

i also don't feel like the Jesus Lizard will have the long-term impact that Joy Division has. The Birthday Party already fills that niche.

This is why I vote Joy Division. As someone else said, if Jesus Lizard has been around at the same time, maybe different, but Joy Division was a bit different at the time even it does seem quite ordinary now.

Joy Division is just horrible. I would vote for Sammy Hagar or Rush or The Jonas Brothers over Joy Division. Fuck you, Joy Division.
