Cooked straight on the searing streets of Glasgow and served up for mind-bending, floor-filling pleasure – Golden Teacher are back with Sauchiehall Enthrall, an all-new four track EP released directly by the band. Following a slew of snapped-up releases on Optimo Music, Soul Jazz / SOTU, Huntleys & Palmers and Akashic Records – which saw the band meld the worlds of acid-house, leftfield disco, EBM, dub and afrobeat – Golden Teacher have redrawn the boundaries of their sound yet again, giddily embracing jacked-up UK funky, dancehall, musique concrète and further tripped-out stylings from the badlands of Escocia. Slithering, rattling and snapping like a snake with a toothache, this EP is further proof that Golden Teacher are one of the most infectious and unhinged dance acts around at the moment. The EP comes in screen-printed silver sleeves made by the band's own hands.

Golden Teacher and the Rough Trade shops join forces to offer new ears the opportunity to hear the Teacher's first three recording efforts on one handy compilation. Recorded between 2012 and 2013 at Glasgow's Green Door Studio through a state-funded scheme for unemployed young musicians, this release documents the six-piece's interest in the willful naïveté of late 20th century "post-" tendencies, leading France's MidiLibre to later describe Golden Teacher as "an idiot-savant prototype of dance music in the 3rd millennium." What that basically means is Golden Teacher kicks ass! They know what makes people dance and they know how to do it. From the acid go-go of lead off track 'Rashomon' you're in for a total treat that takes in the synth funk of 'Love Rocket!', the percussive rumble of 'Double Bump', the voodoo drum machine drenched 'Like A Hawk' and the atmospheric 'Dringhouse' to name but four killer tracks on this amazing set. If you need comparisons think LCD Soundsystem, ESG, Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Pigbag, Trouble Funk, Moroder, DAF and Liquid Liquid. This is the perfect chance to get on point with one of the greatest bands around at the moment and this won't hang around for long.
