Pre order the début GOLDBLUME album right now!


Back in 2015, I put on Goldblume’s first gig. It was supporting Tellison at the Corner House in Cambridge. I’d known Tim the bassist from work and he’d mentioned he had a new band. Figuring it was easier to see them if I just put them on my own gig – as well as hoping they’d pull a decent amount of punters as it was their first show – I gave them this gig.

They were genuinely great.

They were far from perfect, but you could tell straight away that they had stacks of potential. They self-released their début EP – Real Nice – a few months later and, like that first gig, it was great but not the finished article. You knew the band had talent and just needed to hone themselves a bit and they’d be on fire.

Then they honed themselves a bit and were, in fact, on fire.

I saw them many times and watched them get better with every performance. When the time came for their second EP – 2017’s Go Figure – I was on board to release it on the label. I’d heard these songs live and wanted you to all hear them too.

Again, this EP was great but you knew they could be better still. The Fawning single from later in the year was proof of this as it was a step above the EPs. So, with planning started on the début album, could they keep getting better?


Even line-up changes – drummer Grant left the band to be replaced by Bouquet of Dead Crow’s Neil, until a permanent substitute could be found – couldn’t quell the band’s creativity and the ten tracks crafted for HUSK are, yet again, a step above previous efforts.

The current line-up – drummer Matt, the aforementioned Tim, and vocalist/guitarist Jethro – are three of the most talented and passionate people I know, and I am genuinely honoured to call them my friends.

I love HUSK. I’ve listened to it countless times since the band sent me the finished audio. I can’t wait for you to hear it too.


The band celebrate the album’s 9th November release, with a gig the night before at the Portland Arms, Cambridge, with support from Birmingham’s Sunshine Frisbee Laserbeam and Peterborough/Leeds-based FES.

Long overdue post!

I always leave it way too long to ever post anything on here, so here’s another long overdue post!

New Goldblume EP in early 2017

Goldblume are a lovely bunch of guys and an awesome band as well. Three piece from Cambridge playing scuzzy, grungey, rock.

They self-released their début EP “Real Nice” in 2015 and, on 6th January 2017, Aaahh!!! Real Records is proud to be releasing “Go Figure”, their second EP.

Not gonna bother with pre-orders or any of that; just come to the release show and buy one! This initial run is limited to just 50 copies with sleeves printed on recycled card, courtesy of the ever-excellent ACDSleeve. Any leftover will be on sale from this very site after the fact.
