NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!  Originally formed as a studio project, The Gold Needles have expanded recently to become a full live band. Comprising of Simon Dowson (vocals and guitar), Dave Burbage (lead guitar), Mark English (keyboards, percussion and backing vocals), Carl Slaughter (bass and backing vocals) and Justin Davidson (drums) the band have been writing and recording since 2015 although friendships go back much further than that. The band revel in being eclectic both in influence and output and are quite chuffed with the comparisons that have already been made to Be Bop Deluxe and The Church.  Their profile continues to rise with some very kool contributions to projects outside of their own releases.  Their cover of an obscure Monkees track, “The Poster”, was used on the digital version of 7a Records Monkees tribute album “Listen To The Bands”.  UK Rock Radio have used hipster astro instrumental “Service With A Smile” to close many of its shows following its release on Fruits De Mer Records’ 2017 “16th Dream of Dr Sardonicus” festival CD.  Also on Fruits De Mer Records, they will be contributing a cover of the West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band’s “Smell Of Incense” on a double album vinyl release in 2018.  TBM Records in Canada requested a track for a forthcoming Adrian Borland/The Sound tribute album they are releasing in 2018 and were provided with a contemporary version of “Counting The Days”.  “Their music purrs, full of all melodic guitars, harmonics and double time tambourine!” – Record Collector Magazine  Hard to pigeonhole, The Gold Needles wear their eclecticism on their sleeves - fusing power pop with psych and prog.  “Pearls.”, their 18 track full-length debut on Kool Kat, is a “catch-all” collection of their (non-cover) recorded output to date, making this the perfect introduction to these up-and-comers!  GREAT!!
