Gold Cash Gold
Paradise Pawned Vol. 1
(Times Beach)

Detroit’s Gold Cash Gold takes its name, fittingly enough, from a local pawn shop: The group claims musical castoffs, polishes ‘em up (but not too shiny- rock should be a little tarnished, a tad disheveled) then displays the recast baubles with pride and panache. Among the gems: Prince-y soul-rock stomp; Aerosmithian swagger, especially from lead throat Eric Hoegemeyer, so in-your-face you practically feel silk scarves dust your forehead; and Black Crowes glam-twangarama (the careening “Same Old Blues,” with lines such as “I’m just a preacher for rock’n’roll” could be a Shake Your Money Maker outtake. Ominously, GCG sprung from the ashes of hapless alterna-grungesters Charm Farm, and two members also worked with (urp!) Uncle Kracker. But imagine how barren the rock landscape would be if we held youthful transgressions against musicians. (Whatever did happen to those tots in Old Skull, anyway? Graham Lyndsey released a solo album last year –ed.) It’s the here-and-now that counts, and GCG’s sound, recycled elements or not, is vital and definitely nowsville.
