REVS Digital interviewed swedish band GOAT who are as known for their story as their diverse music and intense live performance. GOAT is playing today in the BLACK TENT / 22:30
You are told to be from Korpilombolo in the North of Sweden, what kind of role does it play in your story?
No we don´t speak of this matter anymore. We have been asked not too and we will always respect the will of the timeless unchanging.
Can you tell us who forms the band today and how did you start playing together?
A bunch of musicians who are actively involved in this “spiritual” evolution that is taking place before our very eyes.
It was not a matter of choice whether or not we would play together. Within the community there was always music in one form or another.
that is the way we were brought up and in a way we just never stopped playing.
Goat is told to be strongly connected to stories about voodoo. Can you tell us about that?
It has a major role in all of our lives even today. I cannot emphasize this enough. Wherever we are The Goat is there with us.
Money may come and go but not the Goat.
Can you tell us how does the creative process go when you are making new songs and material?
Sometimes we jam, sometimes it´s a riff or a drumbeat that evolves.
You wear masks while performing, is there a specific reason for it?
Because of many different reasons. The main reason for me is that it´s something I grew up with since
I suffered a severe trauma to my face early on in life.
What kind of music you feel closest to, yourself?
The more atonal Jojk stuff. I am very heavily into that shit.
