Black Gold.  No, not that annoying dirge.  Not my preferred colour scheme when upholstering.  Not, even, the subject of most of the bizarre spam e-mail I get.  Incidentally, I received an interesting one today that opened by expressing regret and ‘not having the pleasure of knowing [my] mindset’. Ok, ok, your curiosity is high, my ability to be obtuse is at its peak, and I’m about to reveal all. Black Gold are an indie-rock band.  DON’T STOP READING.  Not until you listen to these Tommy Sunshine and Shark remixes.  Quite simply brilliant; melodic funky, delicate and thumping at points, these two re-mixes are the perfect soundtrack to such gorgeous weather and the optimism I can feel in the air!
