Biography

Led by music journalist and ex-Membranes frontman John Robb, Goldblade are a punk band that incorporate ska, rockabilly and other different musical style into their music.
They have toured the world always tearing it up live with their live show that’s been dubbed ‘the greatest live show in the world’ for its high octane sweaty high energy anthemic punk rock assault.

As for factual stuff; Goldblade were formed in 1996 when ex-Membranes front-man, journalist, and some time TV pundit John Robb met up with a like minded musician in a local UFC gym. Training like wild dogs their soundtrack was punk rock, hardcore and underground blues. They knew they had to form a band.
They were joined by ex-Membrane Keith Curtis on Bass, and ex-Hounddog drummer Rob Haynes. The initial line up set about shaking up the then stagnant live music scene. Immediately signed by Ultimate Records, they released a couple of low key singles before ‘Strictly Hardcore’ hit the UK national charts in March 1997. ‘Hardcore’ was taken from the album ‘Hometurf’, and the Blade then set about a relentless, and still continuing heavy touring schedule. A follow up single ‘Hairstyle’ was released which was made Single of The Week on BBC Radio 1, the band were invited, and appeared on Saturday morning TV; A second album ‘Drop The Bomb’ was released in 1998 before the bands label collapsed scuppering any chance of capitalising on their initial success.
