Sad and woolly!
Hello. I am The Golden Gonk. For the sake of pigeonholing (and because this kind of thing is HOT right now) I see myself as a one man psychedelic melodic folk carnival. Oh, how exciting! Pretentious soundbite: "I make music which looks up to the stars from the comfort of the forest floor" But you knew that already!
Band/artist history
I got a guitar on October 31st (HALLOWEEN!) 1995. How prophetic. Started writing things in 1997. Still doing it now. Great or what?!
Have you performed in front of an audience?
The Golden Gonk has yet to trouble any live venues. So that's a no.
Your musical influences
Syd Barrett, The Incredible String Band, Nick Drake, The Beatles, Kevin Ayers, Pink Floyd, John Renbourn, The Byrds, Roy Harper, John Fahey, Bert Jansch, Neil Young.....many others.
What equipment do you use?
Spanish guitar, Telecaster, lots of borrowed stuff. I have a small bongo somewhere. Don't we all.
Anything else?
The music available on my page isn't the most representative stuff that I've done. Sometimes I even try and sing! Words! Melodies! The horror! Well, none of this stuff is recorded to an acceptable standard so that's why I've not uploaded any of it. Excuses, I know. Nothing to do with the fact that the thought of people listening to me sing MAKES MY SKIN CRAWL. Oh, and drugs are bad!
