Goldrush are an Oxfordshire based five-piece made
up of G (Drums, Wurlitzer), Jef (Keyboards, Bass), Garo
(Guitars, Vocals, Piano, Drums), Robin (Guitars, Keys,
Vocals, Drum Programs) and Joe (Bass, Vocals, Keys,
only are they accomplished musicians, they also run
their own label (Truck Records) and organise their own
annual festival (The Truck Festival every July).
Their latest single Same Picture, the follow
up to the Pioneers EP released in February, is
a hook-laden gem that is instantly spellbinding. Released
on 7 and CD through Virgin Records on 3 June 2002,
Same Picture is the song that should take Goldrush
to even greater glory.
As well as touring extensively in the UK with the likes
of Elbow and The Electric Soft Parade, Goldrush have
just finished recording their first LP, co-producing
it with Lenny Franchi (Tricky, Bjork, Mogwai, The Music).
Don't Bring Me Down, is an astonishingly accomplished
and ambitious album, driven by passion-filled harmonies
and tunes that owe as much to classic Americana as they
do to a certain English charm. Don't Bring Me Down
is released later this month through the band's own
Truck Records imprint on Virgin Records, with whom the
band have recently signed a long-term deal.
Goldrush are central to the Truck empire - the label
was originally created so the band could release their
own records, but now signed are Black Nielson, Fonda
500 and the Juggernaut imprint (Rock of Travolta and
Dustball). Truck is also a recording studio (based on
a farm in Steventon) and a festival. The Truck Festival,
now in its fifth year, attracts over three thousand
people. This years festival takes place on 20
and 21 July at Hill Farm, in Steventon, near Abingdon,
