This album was written/recorded/mixed between October 2010 and January 2011. It’s a first in the Golden Gonk discography in that it doesn’t feature any purely instrumental pieces- all 9 tracks are what you might call ‘proper songs’ with lyrics and all that malarky!! Woah!!
It’s a fairly diverse collection…typical GG navel-gazing melancholy loner ballads…a couple of groovy ‘rockers’ featuring ear scorchin’ fuzz guitar eruptions and freaky vocals…some naive folk pop moments which hark back to the pre-Gonk music of The Swiss Loaf Bakers…one track that ventures into sorta post-punky waters…and a monster 17 minute ‘suite’ to wrap things up!!
All I’ve got left to do is finalise the artwork and it’ll be ready for sale!! Hopefully this won’t take too long…
