ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Goat Family is a flock of singers and strummers from San Francisco. The band grew out of a group of experimental filmmakers looking to let loose with raucous noise and original tunes. Their set leans heavily on the bars of The Carter Family, The Louvin Brothers, Jesus Christ Superstar, and the Pogues. Originally formed as a jug band, the Goats have expanded to a sound that leans forward into the beat, just shy of the moshpit.

Their third release, The Devil Can Eat My Dust, features some of Rock Ross's best original lyrics with reflection on a possible afterlife in Safe In Hell and the unending nightmare of Rawhead And Bloody Bones. Rock and Thad Povey team up for the anti-war anthem, The Last Hurroo, while Chris Santeramo brings us to the Drunk Tank, for a release from the misery of daily life.

Two cover tunes that have long been part of Goat Family live shows have finally been captured without losing their wildness – Ain’t No Grave Gonna Hold My Body Down with it’s evangelical ferocity, and the show-stopper, Si Tu Boquita Fuera, with it’s tortilla-flinging madness.

The Goat Family is Cecil B Feeder (percussion, vocals), Dan Janos (guitar, dobro, ukelele, bass, vocals), Thad Povey (tiple, guitar, bass, vocals), Rock Ross (washtub bass, saw, effects, vocals), and Chris Santeramo (accordion, harmonica, vocals).

Special guests on The Devil Can Eat My Dust are Heather Yager (piano), Freddi Price (trumpet), Brian Godchaux (fiddle), and Russell Carr (backing vocals). Los Angeles-based Goat Kevin Cunningham brings his banjo and indispensible engineering and mixing skills.

Yay!
So I met one of these guys in Dublin Ireland, he sang a song for us (I'm in a band myself.. REDROOM) And he gave me a free dowmload, this album is great fun, I would have paid for it, you could do worse. Bet you they're great live!
