When the masked Swedish collective Goat toured Europe in the
Autumn of 2016 to promote their then recently released third album
Requiem - the band came up with the idea to record every show.
On returning back to their home town of Korpilombolo, Goat
painstakingly went through all the recordings and have to picked out
6 tracks to be released on for limited live album Fuzzed in Europe.
Goat picked these 6 tracks in particular as they are different versions
to what is found on the releases the songs originally came from and
the band liked the idea that these versions are documented onto vinyl.
Goat’s live reputation is second to none – since their first public
shows in 2012 they have stunned audiences across the globe. The
bands brand of dancable, tribal psychedelia is guaranteed to create
mass hysteria from the wanting crowds – Goat know how to create
music that is made for the ‘head’ as well as the ‘body’.
There are rumours of Goat disappearing into the hills – that they have
hung up their masks now for good and have slipped away as quietly
as they arrived on to the scene. Whether this is true or not, we don’t
know, but even if they have or have not disbanded from public view,
this is a great document of their immersive power to cherish, it
celebrates band completely at the top of their game.
The eye popping beautiful artwork for Fuzzed in Europe was
created by the great poster artist Adam Pobiak – who has
worked with everyone from Soundgarden to the Justice and Swans
to Flaming Lips.
The ltd LP is released ltd to 2,250 copies worldwide and comes in two
different colour variants – it will also be available digitally.

It seems like maybe Goatman is the 'weird' member of Goat... RHYTHMS is aptly named, a monolith mosaic of Fela Kuti, exploitation soundtracks, screaming psychedelica and more all warped and twisted into a wild, unique whole. All the guest singers make this an even more globe-trotting soundtrack...play this at a party and watch your guests get seriously freaky. pierrelefou
