London based 'We Buy Gold' are a diverse post-punk rock band that's not afraid to explore and incorporate various styles.. Influences range from Bad Brains to Minor Threat, Roni Size and Photek, and they have also been likened to bands as disperate as Mudhoney, Asian Dub Foundation, MC5 NoMeansNo, the Specials and Warsaw (early Joy Division!)
The players are Marlon (guitarist) and Craig (vocals) Seb (drummer) and Ko-chun (bassist)
When 'We Buy Gold' hit the stage they push the limit(s) into overdrive.. Imagine a volcano on the verge of eruption but never does until your attention wanders then, BOOM!
Bombastic, dynamic and imaginative waves of sonic power Delicately crafted and meticulously shaped to form a true gritty shitty sound of the (true) London Underground..
When it comes to live performances ‘We Buy Gold’ hit the spot
A guitarist trying desperately to squash the hallucinations of bugs crawling over his effects pedals and still managing to throttle a musical APOCALYPSE out of his Gretsch (called Rhonda!)
A singer that when isn’t trying to crawl in to the kick drum is doing push-ups during the song’s bridge packs a lyrical punch with a poetic edge..
And a rhythm section who literally add up to more tha the sum of their parts!
All we can add is that the untested drug ‘WBG’ has been unleashed for the benefit of all, so don’t be afraid to succumb to this post punk sound with a twist..
