Goldie In-depth Biography

The name Goldie} is represented by a triumvirate of commercial breakthroughs in pop} music, culminating with the electronica} performer of the '90s. Prior to that it was Goldie & the Gingerbreads}, a girl pop} band from the '60s, and in the following decade a British group called just plain Goldie}. With gold records and the general amassing of doolah such a big priority in rock} music, it seems worth mentioning that the latter Goldie} was actually named after a type of bird. It can be assumed that Dave Black}, founder of the band, was following an inspiration similar to one of his earlier combos, Kestrel}, also named after a winged species.

Black} can be pointed out as a link between progressive rock} and glitter}, if anybody actually wants such a thing. Kestrel} was best known as a group that had a Mellotron player in the band; this fact alone has managed to keep the sole Kestrel} LP in print. Goldie} was better known for its singles on the Bronze} label, especially "Making Up Again,"} a hit single for several months in 1978. Some of the former members of Kestrel} were involved in this combo, although ex-Goldie} members don't seem to be going to a lot of trouble to take credit for their involvement in the band. One of Black}'s songwriting collaborators of the late '70s was named Peter MacDonald}. Prior to forming Goldie} in 1976, Black} had been touring with David Bowie}'s Spiders from Mars} band.

That connection may have been enough reason to label any subsequent Black} product as glitter}. The glib cheer of that genre is challenged by the fact that the flip side to "Making Up Again"} is actually entitled "Time to Kill,"} perhaps suggesting an alternative solution to the same problem. The Goldie} band stayed together for four years, becoming one of the pop} legends of their home stomping grounds, Blyth Town, and appearing numerous times on television programs such as Top of the Pops}. When the group broke up in 1980, Black} went on to form 747} and play with the Brendan Healy Band}. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, All Music Guide
