The Goon Sax in session

The Goon Sax are back with new album We're Not Talking and single She Knows. They've only got two UK shows, but we've managed to bag a session with them - we are good to you.

The Goon Sax are back with new album We're Not Talking and single She Knows. They've only got 2 UK shows, but we've managed to bag a session with them - we are good to you.

The Goon Sax are James Harrison, Louis Forster and Riley Jones from Brisbane, Australia. Still in high school when they made their first album Up To Anything in 2016 which took them into end of year lists for BBC 6 Music, Billboard and Rough Trade, and earned them raves from the Guardian, Pitchfork, Spin, Uncut and Rolling Stone.

The Goon Sax toured UK and Europe twice on that record, played shows with Whitney, US Girls, Twerps and Teenage Fanclub, graduated school, and then turned their focus to album number two. They flew to Melbourne to record with James Cecil and Cameron Bird, respectively former/current members of Architecture In Helsinki.

Wow, lots to talk to Marc about then.
