1. Who the hell are they? Hailing from the rural eastern coast town of Forli, Italy, GoldRust solidified their sound-style with their many influences, in order to create a unique style but always capable to show where they come from, trying to give the band an identity other than a legitimacy that comes from the great rock bands of the past. GoldRust had always played rock 'n' roll music, even if they already knew that the proposal of this very 'un-Italian' music and their refusal to write or perform songs in anything other than English made them near outcasts at home. Formed from a rib of Satellite Inn, definitely a rare example of Italian Alt-Country band, the only one that signed a contract with an American indie label, MoodFood Records, which had on his roster bands like Whiskeytown. Satellite Inn's first record, Cold Morning Songs, received positive comments and good press all over the world, from Europe to the Australian airwaves, a sort of legitimacy of their unique interpretation of traditional American Country. Embracing the rigors of tour has always been a 'way of life' for GoldRust and all the bands before them, as a means to present their sound as well as develop their own songs. Alongside many of the finest European, Australian and American bands, Satellite Inn toured the Italian, European and American circuit, from large city ballrooms to small clubs and bars. Being a traveling band, living their music on the road has always been a top priority for any band's member. 2. How the hell do they sound like? Goldrust, the 2003 band's debut record, has been recorded entirely live, overdubbing only vocals and the instruments that couldn't be played live in the first session (like the harmonica). This first work gathers all the experience of the band's different souls deriving from years and years spent on stage all around the world and from the personal influences of each member. Eric Westphal, Gary Young's (ex-Pavement) bass player, described it as 'a classic 70s sound played with punk attitude, just like the Buzzcocks rehearsing Zuma...' Goldrust is a dynamic collection in which the band successfully blends brilliant songwriting with minimal studio production. The result is a genuine, honest sound that leads to a greater understanding of GoldRust's influences.-.
