The Quietus review Goat at Primavera Sound

The Quietus reviewer for Primavera had some nice things to say about Goat's set:

"...While it's infuriating that Swans and Goat clash, I venture to see the Swedes, having seen Gira and co. four times in the last eight months. It being the ATP stage, trickles of Blur float over from the main stage at times. But by the time Goat plunge back into their Stooges meets Funkadelic whirlwind, Blur are rendered a long forgotten memory and blasted back to the 90s by a sonic fury that simultaneously pre and post dates them. The masked group tear through World Music with sizzling gusto and grace, with a performance that exudes so much unrelenting and groove-ridden vigour that the audience descend into flailing madness. It's anvil-heavy in its tone and execution, the guitars and bass scream mercilessly, but the hand drum that a gimp-masked man sits and plays at the front adds a percussive ferocity that makes this 2am party performance a gripping triumph..."
