Biography

Chicago-based ecstatic drone duo The Golden Sores began as an exploratory collaboration between software engineer, visual artist, and composer Steve Fors (unseen|unknown, United Steelworkers Union, blstr) and schoolteacher, label proprietor, and experimental musician Chris Miller (Number None, Th’ Exceptional Child, REBIS) in 2007.

Bound by a shared love of red wine, the Kranky aesthetic, and the eclectic recordings of off-beat Christian Rock visionaries Daniel Amos, the two began life as a musical entity as the “pop-drone” Flux Bouquet. After several well-received live shows, a CD-R EP entitled first, and a scrapped full-length, Miller and Fors began to indulge their more experimental impulses, giving birth to The Golden Sores in 2008. Utilizing a combination of electric and lap steel guitar, salvaged thrift store keyboards, pedals (both broken and boutique), obscure analogue synthesizers, and other obsolete noise-making esoterica, Fors and Miller have forged deep into the realms of drone—continuing to pursue the perfect marriage of harsh and beautiful sounds, simple melodies and song structures through spontaneous and ecstatic improvisation. Thus far, their efforts have produced one full-length CD-R, Ashdod to Ekron, released in a limited edition of 100 copies on Fors’ Drone Cowboy label to broad acclaim.
