Watch Goat Girl take our £30 record shop challenge for Bands Buy Records episode 13

Probably the greatest album release day of all time

Album release day is a memorable one for any artist, especially when it’s the first one.

That was the case when we met up with Goat Girl just after Easter. Their self-titled debut album on Rough Trade had been available for just a couple of hours when we took Clottie Cream (guitar/vocals) and Rosy Bones (drums) from the band to Reckless Records in Soho.

As with Parquet Courts and Kwes in the past few weeks – check out those episodes of Bands Buy Records that we’ve made in partnership with ThisIsSoho – the rules were the same. We gave them £30 to spend on records, they just had to buy a minimum of three. Check out how they got on.

Just finally, since this episode was recorded Goat Girl have had to postpone a number of shows as Rosy was involved in an accident. She’s on the mend, and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
