LISTEN! Vivien Goldman new single ‘Saturday Afternoon’ key post punk journalist releases great dub pop work out

Cadiz Entertainment · Saturday Afternoon

Vivien Goldman was one of the key writers in the punk and post-punk periods and her 1978 single produced by John Lydon is one of the great lost classics of the period. After several decades writing and lecturing on post-punk in New York City she has returned with new material produced by Youth and with a gig at the IRL Gallery in New York on August 22nd.

Prior to the digital release of her debut solo album on Youth Sounds / Cadiz Entertainment,  ‘Punk Professor’ Vivien Goldman will share a new single on the 6th of August 2021.

‘Saturday Afternoon’, produced by Youth (Killing Joke, The Orb, Paul McCartney) and edited by the legendary Dennis Bovell, is a hint of what to expect from her eagerly awaited ‘Next Is Now’ long player, which features ten new tracks including recent single ‘I Have A Voice’. Says Goldman, “Quite a turn-up to be making my first album now, specially with my dear bred’ren Youth at the controls. I found I had lots to sing about and my voice has improved!”

To coincide with the release, Goldman will exclusively perform a selection of album tracks with musical conspirators Dunia and Aram at two special live shows at the IRL Gallery in Brooklyn New York that commence at 4pm and 7pm on Sunday the 22nd of August 2021.

 Musician, writer, educator and broadcaster, her celebrated post-punk output of the early 1980’s saw Goldman acclaimed for the social comment on tracks such as ‘Private Armies’ – voted a top feminist punk song by Pitchfork. The accolade led to the release of Goldman’s seventh book, the award-winning Revenge of the She-Punks, which is appearing in seven international editions.

 

Her musical renaissance was prompted by the popularity of ‘Resolutionary’, the 2016 compilation of her early 1980s music recorded with people from PiL, The Raincoats, Slits, Aswad, Robert Wyatt and her own first band, The Flying Lizards. Goldman’s post-punk classic, ‘Launderette’ recently featured in HBO’s The Deuce and she has been sampled by the likes of rappers Madlib and The Roots, among others.

 

Emerging from lockdown and with the vinyl and CD release of the ‘Next Is Now’ album set for October, Vivien Goldman will announce more live shows in the States, Europe and the UK.

Track Of The Day 3/8 - Amahla

'Do Something You Can't Take Back'It's been - to put it lightly - a year. 2020 churned up some long-standing societal issues, with the death of George Floyd sparking global Black Lives Matter marches. For the music industry, Blackout Tuesday became a moment to reflect, a time to chart a forward path that was truly inclusive. London songwriter Amahla couldn't help but absorb some of these energies - a Black woman making her way in the UK music industry, she's seen at first-hand the obstacles that still exist. New EP 'Where Do We Go From Here' is a mature, rounded offering, pitting her deep-rooted soul and R&B influences against literate, revealing, and highly personal lyrics. Her gorgeous track 'Do Something You Can't Take Back' is a plea towards practical activism, an urge to put those well-meaning social media platitudes into IRL use. She explains: "I wrote 'Do Something You Can't Take Back' in response to ‘Blackout Tuesday’ in June 2020. On that day over 28 million people posted Black squares to instagram, but solidarity is practical not symbolic." "With the video I wanted to remind people why it's so important to protest and use our voice. We also used footage from fans who took a physical stand against racism last year, it was a special moment bringing this to life. Like I sing in the chorus 'do something that you can't take back, from me...'" We're able to share the video to this beautiful song, and the message contained within it remains as potent, and as vital as it was 12 months ago. Something to absorb on a deeper level, you can check it out below. - - -
