Do these feisty Londoners possess the Midas Touch!? No one is crafting music as original as We Buy Gold are. The London quartet has imaginatively fused together post-punk, rock and rap in an attempt to establish a style that is appealing and exhilarating to listen to!
London based post-punk reprobates We Buy Gold make the MC5 sound like Keane, and with influences as diverse as Bad Brains, Roni Size, Aphex Twin and Minor Threat, an interesting mix of drum 'n' bass influenced hardcore is promised. Lots of energy, a raw mash of Toy Dolls and the Dead Kennedys.
A High energy fusion of post punk, cockney, rock, rap with a flavour of drum of bass’, We Buy Gold seem to cover a large spectrum of musical genres. An incredibly original sound!
The music propels itself along on a plate-smashing street festival vibe. Endearingly daft, and also quite great..
Three tracks: SPANISH BEATS, LADY OF THE MANOR & MASTER PLATER

London based 'We Buy Gold' are a diverse post-punk, rock, spoken word band who are not afraid to explore and incorporate a dizzying array of styles.
WBG have a sense of sense of determination and attitude driven performances that even get bystanders shaking across the dance floor.
When WBG hit the stage they push the limit to overdrive. Imagine a balloon at full inflation, on the verge of popping but never does untill your attention wanders then...BOOM! Bombastic, dynamic and imaginative waves of sonic power, delicately crafted and meticulously shaped to form a true gritty shitty London sound.
With a stunning debut album in the can and two single releases, the next 12 months look like being We Buy Golds' year - catch them now while you can, and don't miss out on one of the freshest, most exciting sounds that you are likely to hear in 2014.
Influences range from Bad Brains to Roni Size and the band have been likened to bands as wildly disparate as Mud Honey and Asian Dub Foundation.
