Initially formed in late 2002 with an unlikely namesake, 24KGold consists of Keith Curts (vocals/guitar, Pisces), Mike Martinson (drums, Virgo) and Matt Rosa (bass, Gemini). Keith and Mike have been playing in various bands together for the past seven years, after meeting each other while working at the legendary, but now defunct, San Francisco punk rock record store Epicenter. Keith took a stab at playing in Subpoena the Past, and both he and Mike were founding members of Ghost Orchids. After a line-up change or two, 24KGold acquired Matt, former bassist in Aaron Montaigne and the Chandeliers. Now a trio, 24KGold are an emergency distress signal, urgent and guiltless. They revisit the important aspects of punk rock's past and sew it to the modern rancor of fashion as function. Wired by their collective influences, 24KGold seem more poised than mechanical, fostering political sideswipes in television attention span tempos, quick as arson. The band has played out to very receptive crowds and this looks to be the very beginning.
Actually, it was the end. 24KGold broke up in 2004.
