Chatting with Goat Girl ahead of Green Man Festival 2018

This weekend large heaps of Londoners and other fiends alike will take a much anticipated musical pilgrimage to Brecon Beacons in Wales for this year's Green Man Festival. For the most part, we're lucky enough to have some of the best in new music located right at our doorstep, and would rarely, if ever, be found travelling as far as four hours for one captivating live show or another, but Green Man is the exception. It has one of the most diverse and appealing lineups of any UK festival, boasting acts such as Cate Le Bon, Grizzly Bear, Kelly Lee Owens and more.

One of the bands making the trek (and requiring your immediate attention) is Goat Girl. If you haven't spent that past couple of months riotously chanting along to their beautifully crafted debut album, then quite frankly that's your loss. Hailing from South London, Goat Girl are a band that over the past year have established themselves as a live and recorded tour de fource.

To get you all excited for Green Man 2018, particularly GG's set, we caught up with drummer Rosy Bones and front-woman Clottie Cream ahead of their Saturday slot at the festival.

What's your most stand out festival memory?
Rosy: Probably at Latitude when I lost the car keys!
Lottie: So you admit you lost the keys, aha?
Rosy: Well I woke up and my whole bag wasn't there, all the instruments were in the car and we had to get someone to get into the car before we went onstage.

Who are you excited to see at Green Man?
Rosy: I'm very excited to see Beak>! I missed them at Latitude and heard they were absolutely bangin'.
Lottie: Yeah, I'm excited for Beak> and Jane Weaver.

Green Man has one of the most diverse/equal lineups of all the British and European festivals happening this year, do you think this is a step in the right direction for festivals and line-up equality?
Rosy: Definitely, I don’t feel it can be forced though. I think Green Man has one of the most diverse lineups because it’s that sorta 6music audience, which plays a very wide range of modern and classic tunes from all kinds of different people. There’s no point just pity selecting bands or acts to play at a festival, I don’t feel that would change anything. Attitudes need to change.

Rosy, will your pet monkey Hank be making an onstage appearance?
Rosy: No, he's been a very naughty boy!

How come!?
Rosy: It's too bad to say.

You now have the addition of synth and violin, when you were writing the album did you always imagine having these live elements?
Rosy: We’d always been very keen to record with these sort of elements, and when we went to Dan’s (their producer) studio we had copious amounts of instruments to choose from. After recording the album we wanted to replicate this deep full sound so it just felt necessary to ask the Siberian Tiger and Bower Baxx.

What can a festival crowd expect from your live set?
Lottie: They can expect a jangly rendition of our album, with a few more mistakes and imperfections, as those are the parts we embrace!

How have Edie Lawrence's prop goats withstood life on the road?
Lottie: Clarice is in tip top shape, she looked better after tour then we did!

What's your top tip for surviving a festival?
Lottie: Wrap up warm, wear some wellies, and drink plenty of water.
Rosy: Factor 50 suncream, rinse, rave, repeat!

  2. I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met on a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until i and my wife started having quarrels at home because i couldn't satisfy her on bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and i am 39 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that i was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when i read about a doctor called DR.OMOHAN. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.OMOHAN. I got the doctors Emails:(dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she love my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheat on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.OMOHAN , and i want to say a big thanks to Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email:( dromohanherbalmedicine@gmail.com ) Am thankful to the doctor for helping me.
