Catalan folk-fusion band, El Pony Pisador (trans. ‘prancing pony’) are, like many bands at the moment, biting their fingernails as the powers who rule over us dictate whether live events can go ahead in the wake of the Corona virus outbreak. With live performance being so intrinsically important to a band who have established themselves as one of 2020’s must-see acts, it is a testing time. However, the band are calling on governments around the world for more clarity on potential curfews on public gatherings – specifically – do goats count?
Yes, you’ve read that correctly. El Pony Pisador are a band who have a mixed audience by any standards, with one of the early appreciators of their music being the goat community. Again, we must reassure you that this isn’t a repeated typo. With their fusion of Tuvan throat singing, Catalan folk and good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll, they have found themselves cast somewhat adrift by music lovers in their Barcelona base (heathens!) with one of their earliest collectives of fans being goats. No, honestly, look:
It’s all very well banning public gatherings of 100 or 200 but how many of these are allowed to be livestock? Must music-loving goats suffer through no fault of their own? Must El Pony Pisador abandon one of the earliest adopters of their music? C’mon Trump and friends, think of the kids!
