Goldfinger

Along with No Doubt, Sublime, and Rancid, the Los Angeles quartet Goldfinger helped contribute to a mini-U.S. ska-punk movement in the mid- to late '90s. The group was originally formed in 1994 by ex-Electric Love Hogs guitarist/singer John Feldmann and bassist/singer Simon Williams (who were both working at the same shoe store at the time), in addition to drummer Darrin Pfeiffer and an unnamed second guitarist (who would leave the group before any recordings could be issued and later become a pro surfer in Costa Rica). A friend of Feldmann's, Charlie Paulson, signed on shortly thereafter, playing his first show with the group just a day after being given a tape of their songs to learn. A six-track demo EP, Richter, was issued in 1995 and received favorable reviews and a substantial amount of airplay on college radio, leading to Goldfinger signing a major-label contract with Universal. Their self-titled full-length debut hit the record racks a year later, spawning the popular single/video "Here in Your Bedroom" (a track that originally appeared on their EP), and the group toured alongside the Sex Pistols, No Doubt, Reel Big Fish, and the multi-band festival the Vans Warped Tour.

Their second full-length, Hang-Ups, was released in 1997, and although the album failed to live up to the expectations set by their debut, Goldfinger stayed in the public eye with their cover of the Spiral Starecase song "More Today Than Yesterday," featured in the soundtrack of the hit Adam Sandler movie The Waterboy. Williams left the band in 1998, replaced by a former bandmate of Feldmann's from Electric Love Hogs, Kelly Lemieux, and Goldfinger debuted their new lineup with the eight-track all-covers live EP Darrin's Coconut A**: Live a year later. The quartet's third studio release, Stomping Ground, was issued in 2000 as the group toured both Europe and the U.S. (during their tour of England, Goldfinger recorded one of their sets, issuing the live Foot in Mouth, available only at shows and through the band's official website). Come 2001, it was Paulson's turn to jump ship, replaced by Brian Arthur (formerly of the Texas alt-metal outfit Unloco), as Goldfinger's first studio album for their new label, Jive/Zoomba, was issued in 2002 with Open Your Eyes. Disconnection Notice from 2005 found the group switching to the Maverick label. By 2008, however, Paulson was back on board, and the band released Hello Destiny... on the punk label SideOne Dummy. ~ Greg Prato, Rovi

Dont read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in 2 days. Now you've started reading so don't stop. This is so scary put this on atleast 5 songs in 143 minutes when done press f6 and your lover's name will appear on the screen in big letters this is so scary because it actually works

Why did Goldfinger get bad after the 90's?
Here in your bedroom is just about my favorite song ever.

I listen to stuff like Madball and Sick of it all, old Agnostic Front.
Johnny Cash, The Clash. But every time I hear Here in your bedroom I wanna dance like nobody is watchin. Brings back memories of High school.

oh haha now i do feel like a a** haha sorry papa eric haha well then thankes man haha sorry so sorry haha
Good fun band! Original stuff is good and some of the covers are really great!
I wasn't calling you a dumb a** zero. That was directed towards Christopher Aust.

*digress
thanke you 2 guys ( not papa eric ) goldfinger is my faverit band and always will be and i like that tahy are fighting for animals rights cuz im a vegetarian ( kinda i eat only a bit of meat but i digres )
Actually I bet would make you look at certain things in different ways, and that would have an effect on your songs.
Your a dumb a**.
seizethewave
Going vegan did effect their music in the way the lyrics are set. Hang-Ups makes you feel like someone understands you and the way life "goes down". With Hello Destiny, the animal protection message comes across a little too often. Personally, I am an animal lover but I don't listen to music to hear preaching.
i thenk hes saying that he liked the songs i agree whith u papa eric bet give the guy a brack man
Being Vegan has no effect on the way your music sounds. dumb a**
they where the best before they whent vegan and stuff im down whith that but there music just fell
