The Golden Gonk is a Blackpool-based one man psychedelic musical project, taking influence from pretty much anything and everything- acid folk, Krautrock, old buildings, tape collage, animals, drone, ’60s pop, memories, nature, hard rock, Early music, space, dreams, free jazz, minimalism, Black Metal, beautiful women…
The name was first established in 2003, but I’ve been making music under various other guises since 1997.
Most Golden Gonk and related releases to date have been published through the private record label Shack in the Barley Productions. Between 2006 – 2008 I worked with the web-label Woven Wheat Whispers who hosted two Golden Gonk albums for legal download.
