The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle Does His First 100% Goat-Related Interview

Yep. What you read up there is true, folks. John Darnielle finally sat down and talked some real-talk about goats with Modern Farmer. And as funny as the idea is, it’s not played for laughs — it couldn’t possibly be. Darnielle is way too enthusiastic about pretty much everything to let it be a gimmick, and the interview has some thoughtful and interesting questions as far as questions about goats go. In the interview they get into the origin of the band name, Darnielle’s book about Black Sabbath, and how goat imagery relates so much to metal. Read the entire interview here.
