Is Let it Burn the greatest Goat track the band have ever made? The band think it is the best song they have written. The label have not
stopped going on about it since they heard it. And now you can listen to Let it Burn when it is released as a ltd edition 7” single on 25 May. Let it Burn was written specifically for the climatic scene in the short movie Killing Gävle, a The Guardian produced film directed by the very talented Joe Fletcher about the famous Gävle Goat in Sweden which every year local custodians of Gävle try to protect a giant straw goat that is built for the town every Christmas being burnt down by mischievous pagans. Obviously Goat’s music was the obvious to soundtrack the film – their back catalogue is used throughout the film but up to now it was the only place you could hear a segment of the 6 minute+ fuzz groove of Let it Burn but now thanks to Rocket Recordings it can be heard in all its glory. Not only that, but you get a brand new b-side, and like most recent Goat b-sides it reveals another exploratory sound to the bands‘world music’. Friday Pt.1 is a 4 minute excerpt from an organically evolving, cosmic-jazz, studio jam. The ltd 7” comes in 3 exclusive colours, each ltd to 400 copies; ‘yellow flame’ vinyl, ‘orange flame’ vinyl and ‘red flame vinyl’ and these will be randomly distributed around the world. Goat play two shows this summer, supporting Foo Fighters at Gothenburg’s Ullevi Stadium on 5 June and they will be headlining Stage 2 at London’s Citadel Festival on 15 July.
