More information on Goldblade’s official website


The rebel yell of soul-powered punk rock-fuelled Manc combo Goldblade has been channelled rather than tamed through an acoustic medium on the rather aptly named Acoustic Jukebox. John Robb still screams the sound of revolution but this is strictly banjo rather than always strictly hardcore. Packing a punch that is more George Formby than George Foreman, all your Goldblade favourites are bashed out in anarcho-acoustic style, including many reworkings from the lethal The Terror of Modern Life album. A band that never stands still, just watching them live leaves you exhausted. Do you believe in the power of rock ‘n’ roll by mandolin? Punk rock at its best: served up with love for the acoustic generation.
