Goldie Lookin Chain: taking a pop at modern life
Formed in south Wales in the early 2000s,Goldie Lookin Chain had recorded five albums-worth of material before securing a record deal, after apparently being championed by rockers The Darkness. Built around a core of nine members – including leader P.Xain, rapper Eggsy and eventual TV star Andrew 'Maggot' Major – the group made a big splash in 2004 when their major label debut Greatest Hits crashed the UK top five, driven by tongue-in-cheek bangers such as "Half Man Half Machine".
Achieving further success with their follow-up LP, the band soon courted controversy with their singalong anthem "Your Missus is a Nutter". The group repeatedly got into trouble over their song, with even the Mayor of Newport summoning them to his office to give them a dressing down. Part of the problem was their insistence that the song, which tells the story of a woman who drinks too much and gets into fights, was a tribute to Victoria Beckham. The controversy would have died down eventually... if only the Welsh Football Association hadn't booked Goldie Lookin Chain as the half-time entertainment in a friendly with England. They performed the song and dedicated it to David Beckham, who was in the audience. Becks took it in good humour.
Such incidents helped propel Rhys and Eggsy to further fame as talking head-style commentators on TV shows, while Maggot won the hearts of the nation after finishing third in the 2006 series of Celebrity Big Brother. Although their run of chart success burned briefly and brightly, GLC continue to release new material and delight their legions of tracksuit-sporting fans on regular tours of the UK.
