About this item

Are the walls bending? Is that a leprechaun at the bar? No, you're just in the welcoming psychedelic bosom of the Golden Lion! Be at rest in this venue & cultural hub-cum-cult record label and let Waka be your spirit guide!

Number seven in the highly collectible series comes from Piccadilly favourites The Emperor Machine alongside The Summerisle Trio which is infact no other than Sean Johnson, Duncan Gray, and Sarah Rebecca who have forged the project specially for this release!!

An inappropriately named but undeniably grooving, cosmic disco track;  "Willow's Song" by the cosmic disco end boss Emperor Machine introduces the record in fine style. It's stuttered Strat, octave bass and swirling arps conspiring to take us off into a lysergic disco heaven with a definite nod to Patrick Adam's Bumblebee Unlimited project riding high throughout! The attuned and eager eared amongst you might just recognize that it is actually Gig & Waka, metaphorical parents of the Golden Lion who make a guest cameo on vocals - making this a very special release for the label indeed.
Meanwhile, The Summerisle Trio deposit a serene and dreamy interstellar ballad on side B with a take on "Willow's Song". Nestling into a star studded pillow, a wash with long reverbs and floating pads; the perfect tonic if you've danced your tits out on side A!

Super limited edition as always. Don’t sleep.


Matt says: Not only does GLS007 feature Todmorden's cultural ambassadors and Golden Lion gatekeepers Gig and Waka, we get a luxe and serene debut from The Summerisle Trio. A real and highly collectable treasure from this rich seem of musical heritage.
