Product Notes

Gold Digger provide a spinning, glitzy, neon, shabby-chic snapshot of the state of the nation whilst referencing earlier eras of discontent, drudgery and dissatisfaction. That is not to say 'Get it Together' is glum and depressing album - far from it. Light shines most brightly through the fog and with the UK in the grip of grey skies, grey attitudes and a downright black economic outlook, this musical celebration of life, love and joy sparkles like a beacon in a pea-souper. The last cataclysmic economic crunch in Britain resulted in Acid House when a generation rejected the selfishness and false promises of Thatcherism and created a 'You' movement based on community, acceptance and the transforming power of music. In this spirit, Gold Digger rejects the straight and narrow with sharp lyrics and vivacious electro beats, thumbing it's collective nose at the half-truths and fantasies of 21st century British consumer culture (you too can be a property millionaire! You too deserve a Range Rover in the driveway!). Nowhere is this better captured than on their track 'We're All One' featuring a sample of the late great Bill Hicks - a man who refused to be blinded by the gleam of desperation in everyone's eye and championed humanity over orthodoxy. 'Gold Digger' usually means 'money hungry and shallow' - these guys are anything but. In fact, what's in a name is this: there is real gold out there, amidst the gloom, but it doesn't take the form of dollars, pounds or bullion bars. The real prize is living life with passion and pleasure. That's your life. This is your soundtrack. 'We could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace' - Bill Hicks.
