According to Myspace (http://www.myspace.com/orchestraofukog) THE NATIONAL ORCHESTRA OF THE UNITED KINGDOM OF GOATS is from Italy (or South Tyrol?).
Don't know if that info is correct. There isn't much info around for those strange guys. Anyway, their sound is described as "symphonic grind pop", and I think If you like bands as diverse as DREAM THEATER, PINK FLOYD or even VOIVOD you might actually like them and should give it a try.
Their music is very well produced and the playing is excellent.
They have a second album out now, also for free download that is similar in style, The Three Walls of Kolepta, again kind of a prog-metal concept mini album. Check it out on their bandcamp site below.
"The National Orchestra of the United Kingdom of Goats has formed to cure the pain and darkness from all the lost souls that mindlessly roam this world. These four heroes have set out to tell the one true story. The one story that will save a great many and destroy the ones already far beyond redemption. Close all doors, light a candle - and kill the ones in charge."

"Kid's Garden debuted with the album "Further" in 2007 on the website "George De Large's Music To Take Drugs To" blog (now defunct).
It was given away for free and generated a relatively large number of listeners on Last FM (http://www.last.fm/music/Kid's%2520Garden)
Since then there was only one other song ("Lord, Amen" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Xw1mzcTT10) released with very little distribution.
Last month we announced we played the first show ever as a band after 4 years, and announced a preorder for an upcoming 12" vinyl EP to be released this summer.
The preorder was successful, generating nearly $500 (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1471123704/kids-garden-mirror-kisses-split-album-on-vinyl), which is half of the total cost of printing.
The record (entitled 'Light Hearted') is being pressed as we speak, and will be coming out soon. To ease some of the anticipation for this long-time-coming release,
we are giving away a free 3-track single on bandcamp, called Don't Call Me Yours. thats what I sent you. (kidsgarden.bandcamp.com)
Kid's Garden is a 4 piece band from Harrisonburg, Virginia (USA) just beginning to perform live. We will be performing around the east coast of the US all summer long.
thats pretty much the whole story in a nut shell! All of the music was written and recorded by me in my basement apartment."
