Goat announce special 'Record Store Day' releases




To celebrate this years Record Store Day, Rocket are excited to announce the release of two limited edition 12”s containing exclusive remixes of Goat’s 'Run To Your Mama'.

Run To Your Mama was seen by many as one of the standouttracks off Goat's debut album 'World Music'. Which makes it a perfect choice to give to a selection of artists that we admire and invite them to explore Goat’s voodoo grooves, to twist and turn them into something new.

Vol.1 starts with a subtle but very effective mix by West Country noisegazers Thought Forms, who add washes of cello and bird song to the original track. Following them is Not Not Fun’s High Wolf who stamps his recognisable looped drones all over his reimagination. Redg Weeks, Geoff Barrow’s right hand man at Invada Records is up next and he takes the tracks repetitious groove to create a formidable mix. Then we have The Horrors’ Tom Furse who finds a glam stomp in the track and runs with it. Finally on Vol.1 we have fellow Rocket musicnaughts Teeth of the Sea who create a high energy mix which turns the track into something akin to Xtrmntr era Primal Scream.

The mighty Gnod team up with fellow Manchester producer Raikes Parade for the first remix on Vol.2, together they create a unexpectedly poppy dance track. Following that the legendary DJ and crate digger Cherrystones deconstructs the original track into a mass of industrial beats and echoed vocals. Leeds psych band Hookworms turn the track into a fuzzed out soundscape that calls to mind the fuzzy sounds of Spacemen 3. The last track on Vol.2 is by cosmic disco collective Cage & Aviary who turn it into a great dubbed out, early 90’s ‘Acid house’ dance floor filler.

Full track list is:

VOL.1:
---------
01 THOUGHT FORMS – MOUNTAIN THUMBS MIX
02 HIGH WOLF – RUN DUO MIX
03 REDG WEEKS – RE-WORK MIX
04 TOM FURSE (THE HORRORS) – EXTRAPOLATION MIX

  1. They are ONLY available from your local record shop, until about 10am on the day when they will appear at a grossly inflated price on eBay, courtesy of the scalpers who will doubtless enlist their friends and families to ensure that the genuine fans won't get a so much as a sniff of these unless they are prepared to pay through the nose.

    I love the idea of RSD, but it is badly implemented and wide open to exploitation by people whose only interest in music, vinyl or record stores is the amount of money they can scam from RSD.

    Sorry to be so miserable, but that has been my personal experience of RSD over the last few years. The only time I secure a copy of the sort of releases I am interested in is when the label sells it direct or the scalpers buy too many and the price drops back down to reasonable levels some weeks/months later.

    My local record store chap told me that he is only willing to go for the big label stuff and won't touch the indie stuff on account of the effort involved and the extremely remote chance he will be allocated stock. That pretty much defeats the point of RSD in my humble opinion.

  2. The ebay problem is only a problem when people pay those inflated prices. If people would simply calm the fuck down, and not worry about having to have this and that right away, then you would see the scalpers hold onto their stock, and eventually lower the price.

    I for one am excited about this, and hope I can get copies, but it's not the end of the world if I don't. I support RSD, but I usually don't expect to see stuff from the UK across the pond.
