Goodluck Jonathan’s set-up echoes most brilliant bands throughout history. A
collective of five very different individuals gelled together by a mutual
love and serious appreciation of music and a less serious though equally
passionate love of rum, mocking the percussion section, and annoying the
Nigerian President by misdirecting his Twitter traffic to their profile
(plus other unmentionable exploits expected of a band their age). Their
musical influences and loves run the spectrum of genres: from melodic indie
to dance to rock, the latter mainly championed by the drum and bass
fraternity, “(Goodluck Jonathan) claim that the world “needs a
soundtrack…with fucking big drums.” And we couldn’t agree more”. – NME. An
eclecticism displayed when the band brought in Breton to remix their track
‘Broken Heart’ mixing Goodluck Jonathan’s dynamic, melodic song with dirty
dance beats. For Goodluck Jonathan wholeheartedly believe genres are a chain
around a musicians neck and their aim is to “blur the lines between genres
until they merge into one barrier between good music and shit music”
–Goodluck Jonathan. Amen.
