Those who witnessed Golden Teacher’s set at the Brudenell Social Club last year will testify to their power as a live dance act, and to their ability to create a hypnotic fervour with their often-improvised, highly immersive dance ritual. Simply put, they are one of the best live acts you will ever see.
GT’s music is the result of a collaboration between members of Glasgow acts Ultimate Thrush and Silk Cut. Their two EPs on Optimo Music show their approach to music as an organic, instinctive, collective workout.
“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
“Golden Teacher channel disco, noise and Afrobeat into ecstatic real-time club music” -THE WIRE
“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
“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
