American industrial and hardcore band Lard was created in 1989. This band is the project of well-known musicians such as Jello Biafra (of Dead Kennedys), Paul Barker (of Ministry) and of Al Jourgensen. Biafra and Jourgensen always wanted to create their project and such attempts began in 1983 but the real project appeared only in 1989. The fourth member of the band was Jeff Ward who committed suicide later in 1998. He was replaced by Bill Rieflin and later by Rey Washam. The debut album The Power of Lard was released in 1989. 1990 saw their record The Last Temptation of Reid. The band was silent for seven years and finally they released their third album titled Pure Chewing Satisfaction. The last band’s release was 70’s Rock Must Die, which contained only three songs.
