WORMROT's Biggest Fan, The Grind Goat, Dies
In 2011, the metal world fell in love with the grind goat, named Biquette, spotted at a Wormrot show in Mauriac, France, which took place on a DIY farm.
Noisey tracked down the owner of the farm, Flo, who confirmed the goat's passing last month. They learned some fun facts, like Biquette was the goat's name and biquette is French for goat, so the goat's name was literally Goat the goat. Creative!
Biquette definitely enjoyed some grind music:
When did you first notice she enjoyed attending the shows?
While she was here, she always loved concerts, settings with lots of people. As soon as there was someone she had never seen, she stuck up against them for an hour! And when there were lots of people, it was above all a chance to go steal a little tobacco or something else that was lying around!
Were there any bands or music she particularly liked?
I remember that during Panzer Cardinal (a band from Toulouse) she spent the entire set at the bassist's feet (who, by the way, was hallucinating a bit). She was most connected to grind (it seems weird to talk like this about a biquette but nevertheless it's true!!!). Seeing as the barn floor where we throw the concerts is wooden, I think that she felt the vibrations in her hooves. The majority of the time she even laid down next to the speakers.
Biquette's cause of death remains unsolved, but if she was with us, she would be happy to know that Wormrot is working on some really heavy material.
