Eat Your Own Ears are excited to bring The Mountain Goats to Islington’ beautiful Union Chapel, for what is sure to be a very special night.
Releasing music as The Mountain Goats in various permutations – first as a quintet, then as a duo, often by himself – the songs of default Californian John Darnielle generally dwell on one or a combination of five subjects: conflicts within relationships that lead to irreducible contradictions, food, water, the mythology of pre-Columbian Mexico, and animals that can talk. Since 1995, the general rule was for Mountain Goats albums to feature a mixture of home-recorded and studio songs, but that changed in 2002 with the release of All Hail West Texas, and also saw Darnielle signing to 4AD.
Support comes from Alessi’s Ark.
