- Availability: In Stock
"The lasting effect of constant exposure to the Rip Off Records back
catalogue, Back From the Grave, and the general radiation of Destroy All
Monsters has produced this 4 track guitar-athon. This is dripping with
touches of the Electric Chairs, Kiss, and the Heartbreakers, but holds
together as a blast of modern offering in the grande tradition of very
loud guitars and loving rock and roll". - Jonah Falco
"You’re gonna enjoy Goldie Dawn’s debut EP. It begins with a crash of
power chords. Nothing fancy, just the sound of Cheap Trick’s ‘Surrender’
being pushed down a fire escape. Almost immediately, it explodes into a
bona fide garage-punk stormer, like Brian James’ finest Damned riffs
bolstered by some serious bottom-shaking – yes, we’re going there –
GROOVE. ‘Gone With The Wild’ sashays and slinks around, even as it feels
like it’s hurtling full throttle towards your skull. It is without
doubt a tremendous slice of rock and/or roll.
Hailing from Glasgow, Goldie Dawn’s mighty racket is heralded by the
dramatic presence of Kate Rambo on vocals – and hers is a formidable
snarl, with shades of Ludella Black and A Giant Dog’s Sabrina Ellis. It
meshes perfectly with the wall of sound concocted by her bandmates,
equally capable of creating an addictive noise from the finest riffs in
punk’s ignoble history (‘Crime’) as they are of making a jauntily moving country ballad that twangs in all the right places (‘It’s Nothing To Me’).
You’ve heard all these tricks before and no one here’s ashamed to admit
it; the trick is in the joy that emerges when the guitars are ablaze and
Rambo’s at full pelt. Remember how the humble 7” used to feel like
pop’s finest weapon on the front line? An explosive device loaded with
hooks and delirium? So do Goldie Dawn. Raw, fun and… what’s that word
the broadsheet writers use to describe records that feel like classics
even as you’re hearing them for the first time? Oh yeah: timeless. If
you’re gonna wear out your stylus, playing this on repeat for the rest
of existence would be a worthy cause"
