Live Animal / Press

“I write songs because if I were to just start talking about politics I would get all cynical or preachy or some combination of that.”

“The “too metal” guy might have been thrown off by Goliathon’s sound after watching Live Animal’s set, which consisted of a throwback act of another kind: imagine Bob Dylan fighting with Neil Young over who was more politically conscious. Live Animal was a one-man show on acoustic guitar and harmonica. At times I was wondering if his whole shtick was a little too serious or simply tongue-in-cheek. While certainly not the best guitarist out there, his lyrics and stage presence were beyond his years and made up for anything else he may have lacked.”
