Goat share live version of "Try My Robe" – a precursor to a new live LP to be released later this year

When Goat toured Europe last Autumn to promote their recently released third album Requiem - they had the idea to record every show. Since returning to their home in Korpilombolo, Goat have painstakingly gone through all the shows to pick out the best versions of a 6 tracks for a limited live album called 'Fuzzed in Europe' that is planned for release later this year.

Unfortunately there was just too much to choose from and this great live version of "Try My Robe" didn't make it onto the LP - so the band have decided to share it now as a unique taster to the live LP.

Terrascope reviews The Guillotine by Hey Colossus

It reads:

With 2015’s Black And Gold and Radio Static High Hey Colossus seemed intent on putting clear water between them and their noisier more atonal past. On this, their ninth release (and third for Rocket) they row back a bit down river albeit charting a different course as befits their shapeshifting proclivities.

In many ways it’s actually their most melodic release, as evidenced early doors by the nimble guitar runs of ‘Honest To God’. However these are delivered under worryingly dark sonic storm clouds as, they take aim both musically and lyrically at to the solar plexus of the current toxic political climate.  ‘Back In The Room’ might just be an acknowledgement of this at least partial return to the brutalism of yore, with a ferocious three guitar attack and unremitting drumming over which Paul Sykes spits out words like Nick Cave possessed. And who’s this adding to the maelstrom of cacophony if not venerable Nik Turner on sax, something usually guaranteed to gladden the heart of this ol’ hippie...

Rickard from Flowers Must Die give Dayz of Purple and Orange his 'Ten Of The Best'

It reads:

Sweden has a long and distinguished history of psychedelic music; from the late sixties/early seventies legends that are Pärson Sound, via their later incarnation Träd, Gräs och Stenar and stretching to the current crop of ace bands like Goat, Hills and Kungens Män. One of the very finest contemporary Swedish psych bands are Flowers Must Die - consistently inventive and always quality, their albums are a lysergic journey through psych history channeling the aforementioned Träd, Gräs och Stenar via Can and Amon Düül II and throwing in some modern post-punk attitude for good measure. Their last album 'Kompost' (Rocket Recordings) was a triumph and cemented their place at Psych's top table. 

Good news for us lucky blighters here in the UK, the band are touring, starting this week: 

16th - Cardiff, The Moon 
17th - Reading, Public 
18th - Birmingham, Supersonic Festival 
19th - Cambridge, The Portland Arms (supported by Psychic Lemon no less!) 
20th - London, Café Oto (supporting The Space Lady) 

Anyway, to the business at hand - Rickard from the group has very kindly spared to time to put together a list of 10 of his fave records...and it's a pretty damned cool list....cheers Rickard...
