Biography

Goldie were a British pop/rock band. The band was formed by guitarist Dave Black in 1976 with members of his previous project Kestrel and following his departure from Spiders from Mars. They are best known for the hit single "Making Up Again", which reached Number 7 in the UK Singles Chart in July 1978.

The single as with most of their material was written by their guitarist Dave Black & lead vocalist Pete McDonald and it was released on the Bronze label with catalogue reference BRO 50, the track spent a total of 11 weeks in the chart. Despite releasing follow up singles their lack of subsequent chart success made Goldie a one-hit wonder. Noel Edmunds who was working as a DJ and presenter for the BBC at the time was said to have described it as a “nice little thing".

The song is considered a fine example of late 70's sophisticated pop music, Pete McDonald hinted at its complexity in an interview with the Newcastle Evening Chronicle in March 1978 when he said "It’s not typical of what we play on stage. It’s too complex."
