Wooohoooo, The REC Rooms are excited to announce the latest booking for September. What a night this will be with Goldie Lookin Chain and DJ set.

The group recorded six albums prior to securing a major record deal. They signed to the East/West record label, the home of rock band The Darkness. The band came to the attention of label executive Korda Marshall, who heard the group’s music played by members of The Darkness whilst on tour. GLC went on to support The Darkness in the latter stages of their UK tour.

GLC’s first UK chart entry was “Half Man Half Machine”, which reached the Top 40 in the UK Singles Chart. When group member Rhys Hutchings was phoned by BBC chart presenter Wes on the Official Chart Show to be informed of this, Xain informed the rest of the band that they had reached number 1, much to the shock of the DJ. “Half Man Half Machine” was a surreal song about Eggsy believing he was a robot, dressing up in foil, and going to the shops to buy cigarettes and crisps. The song namechecks many well-known 1980s 8-bit computer systems including Binatone, ZX Spectrum, Commodore 64, ZX81 and BBC Micro.

In August 2004, the group reached number 3 in the UK Singles Chart with “Guns Don’t Kill People, Rappers Do”. With the tagline “The gun is the tool, the mind is the weapon”, the track became a popular radio hit, satirising the American hip hop scene. The B-side was the album track “Soapbar”.
