GOLDEN – 7″s

November 12, 2009

Gold 1

 GOLDEN, a name seldom heard since the 1990’s. I lost off after ‘Super Original Movement’ some 10 years ago now. It would appear they did another two records before changing their name to Extra Golden and playing a very different style altogether. It was easy to see early on that they had a hybrid sound that put them somewhere between The Fucking Champs, Trans Am & Don Caballero.

 According to ‘the internet’ they released an album ‘ Here comes the Golden fuzz” in 1997 on Slowdime, I’m not inclined to believe this even exists for a number of reasons… If anyone can clear this matter up, or either upload it? that would be fantastic. Golden’s s/t on Transsolar was probably most people’s intro to the band, it was something of an ear opener at the time. I’m tempted to upload more stuff but you can still buy a lot of it here, everything I have heard I can recommend highly.

 As far as I know there were only two 7″s, the first with large foldout Derek Hess artwork features two tracks recorded by Bob Weston in 1995. The second released in 1999 is a bit more obscure with what was to become a new direction with ‘Deep Skills’. In many ways similar to The Sorts but with additional dirty funk. B-side is ‘Violator’ a ZZ top tribute recorded on what sounds like a 4 track. This is a brilliant lofi tribute, with accurate solo-ing. Both weird and catchy like Trans Am.


Gold 2

EDIT: There are two more Golden 7″s which I tracked down (so 4x in total)

& at some point I will rip and zip them
