Listen to two tracks by Glasgow's Golden Teacher, featured in The Wire 364
Glasgow party outfit Golden Teacher is made up of singers Cassie Oji and Charles Lavenac, keyboardist Richard McMaster, percussionists Oliver and Laurie Pitt, and synth player and noise maker Sam Bellacosa. They formed two years ago while attending a production course for young unemployed musicians run by Green Door Studios in Glasgow.
Robert Barry relates in The Wire 364: "When it came time for the final session of the course, Oji admits, "none of us had really organised anything", so they just crammed into the live room and went for it. When the course leaders played the recording to friends at Optimo Music, the spontaneous, slightly chaotic, genre-splicing results became the first Golden Teacher 12", Bells From The Deep End."
They've since released three 12"s on Optimo while regularly performing at parties and clubs. Party People/Love is out now.
