Bristol band Goose the Nun raise two fingers at “Overproduced Rock” with new E.P. Skeletons

Bristol based Alternative Rock band Goose the Nun will release their highly personal début E.P. Skeletons on 29th September 2015 for digital download and streaming.

Drawing on diverse punk, rock, and metal influences, Goose the Nun have been described by The Bite (magazine) as “A bar room brawl between Rise Against, Pennywise and Thursday and it’s resulting aftermath”

The Skeletons E.P. was conceived as much an antidote to overproduced mainstream rock, as it was an exploration of family, personal loss and new beginnings.

Recorded live above City & Moon backline hire in Bristol by Scott Mackenzie and Mastered by Ed Woods (Lonely the Brave, Bloc Party, Reuben); the record has been recorded to capture as much of the bands phenomenal live energy as possible.

“Skeletons” is the sound of 3 friends in a room, with no click track, no autotune, and overdubs limited to guitar and vocal doubling only.

The result is a raw, emotional look at love and loss, that is overtly confessional in nature and beautifully, brutally, simple in production.


About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
