Optimo Music (Glasgow)

“When you find a band that absolutely destroys a room, it’s a revelation… Golden Teacher are one of those bands. Basically, go see Golden Teacher live. Trust me on this one.” – VICE MAGAZINE

“Trance-inducing, intoxicating stuff… Utterly hype-deserving, this hi-energy sixsome’s frenzied disco / world / techno beats, paired with ludicrously good, improvised stage workouts confirm Golden Teacher hands-down as Glasgow, nope, Scotland’s best live band of 2014.” – THE LIST

“…the extended, improv-heavy electronic excursions of Factory Floor, but filtered through the gaze of Afrobeat, heavy dub and mutant disco and techno… Infectiously dancefloor-influenced, and effortlessly experimental…
rooted as much in boundary-pushing art-rock and the artful formlessness of deep dub as it is in techno, house and disco.” – THE SKINNY

“What a fucking beautiful racket… The only comparison that can makes any sense really is Gang Gang Dance for their exotic rhythmic attack and Happy Mondays at their most badass epic warehouse-sized mess… It only takes a minute to fall in love – I’m totally addicted.” – THE QUIETUS

“A six-piece live band renowned for their energetic performances and love of improvisation, they feel like the product of post-disco, post-punk era New York rather than 21st century Glasgow. Their sound is intense and intoxicating, densely mixing up African rhythms, throbbing techno, soundsystem dub, post-punk attitude, wonky electronics and Arthur Russell style leftfield disco… It’s an astonishing performance – one of the most memorable and invigorating I’ve seen for some time.” – JUNO
Dither Down (Brooklyn, NYC), Rotating Souls (Atlanta, GA), Stargaze (Leeds)

“The spirit of disco is alive and well in Yorkshire. A two-piece consisting of Matt Woodward (drums) and Jed Skinner (synths), the house-influenced duo tear up every show they play, regardless of who they’re billed with. A room full of indie kids, a room full of disco lovers, a room full of punks – they all fall hard for the Galaxians party.” -NME

“The duo have shared their brand of visceral funk on stages with Tom Tom Club, Zombie Zombie and Ultramagnetic MCs, and it’s the heavyweight synth chug of the Frenchmen which inspires the zero gravity boogie bounce of lead track “Ducket$z”. Combining a thick and brooding bassline of the Zombie Zombie ilk with warbling synths, live drums and fusion keys, the Yorkshire lads deliver a space walking killer for the Red Laser crowd to sink their teeth into.” – PICCADILLY RECORDS

“Channeling New York’s late ‘80s “freak disco” (Was Not Was, Liquid Liquid, Arthur Russell) and Detroit’s Acid House scenes, Galaxians produce a maximum output from minimal set-up. Get your white sneaks on and hit the dance floor.” – SHEFFIELD CULTURE GUIDE
New solo project from Jonathan Nash (Hookworms/Cowtown/Nope)

“Jon Nash is a busy fella. We all know him as a talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from bands like Hookworms, Cowtown, and Nope. But he also does Game_Program, a one-man electronic soundtracker of imaginary 80s high school coming-of-age dramas. GP evokes sun-drenched Miami beaches, palm trees, and teen dreams. Think College, Giorgio Moroder, Mr Fingers, and more. What’s not to like??” – PETIT MACHINS/DROWNED IN SOUND
