A few weeks back I humoured my boyfriend N. by agreeing to go to a Goldie Lookin Chain gig.
Last night was the gig.
I didn’t really know what to expect I suppose. I’ve heard quite a few of their tracks as N. plays them every now and then and when they’re making such catchy tunes like ‘Your Mama’s Got a Penis’ they kind of stick in your head. But I wasn’t prepared for the sheer stage presence – we counted 10 band members all bouncing around in novelty t-shirts and chains. The audience was a bizarre mix of chavvy types, a woman celebrating her 30th birthday with a rubber penis on her head and leather-jacketed men. It was really quite a hilarious night.
The support group were AMAZING live. I’ve scoured Youtube looking for a video to do them justice – this one comes close. Say hello to the Astroid Boys.
