Goat World Music on Limited Edition Import LP
Goat is a collective of musicians who hail from a small and very remote village called Korpolombolo in deepest darkest Sweden. Legend has it that for centuries, the inhabitants of the village of Korpolombolo were dedicated to the worship and practices of Voodoo. This strange and seemingly unlikely activity was apparently introduced into the area after a travelling witch doctor and a handful of her disciples were led to Korpolombolo by following a cipher hidden within their most sacred of ancient scriptures.
The reason it led them there is unknown, but their Voodoo influence quickly took hold over the whole village and they were able to practice their craft unnoticed and unbothered for several centuries. This was until their non-Christian ways were discovered by the Church and they were burned out by the crusaders, the survivors cursing the village over their shoulders as they fled.
To this day, the now picturesque village of Korpolombolo is still haunted by this Voodoo curse and the power of the curse can be felt throughout the grooves of the 2012 Goat record World Music. The nine track album followed the underground success of the now sought after 7" "Goatman," which is also included in this selection. Goat takes in many influences here from the Afro groove that is central to the album, through to head nodding psych, post-punk, Turkish rock, kraut repetition and astral folk.
