“You might like it, you might hate it. I don’t know what you fuckin’ like.” – Wayne Michel (Drums)
Named after a tale from Scottish folklore, the band initially formed in late 2014. As the story goes, a farmer (Hogan) owned a goat rumored to have an odor said to travel miles away. The goat’s been described as having patchy fur, an eye out of socket, and flies abound . For the band, this perfectly symbolized their unorthodox style, that which is anything but unnoticeable.
Their first show (at SXSW, on the rooftop of The Blind Pig) was part of an all Nashville (non-country) showcase. Soon after, HG returned to Nashville, competed in BMI’s “Road To Bonnaroo” (winning the fan vote) and played many other shows around the Nashville area. In March of 2016, Hogan’s Goat began recording their first LP, “Hogan’s Goat” which is set to release July 18th, 2017. The band looks to tour regionally, nationally, and globally.
