Goldie Lookin Chain dropped Get Tickets

However the band press on with self-released single

Goldie Lookin' Chain
Goldie Lookin Chain are to release a new single, despite being dropped by their label.

The Welsh hip-hop crew’s deal with Atlantic Records has come to an end, and the group have parted ways with the label.

Instead the band plan to self-release a reworked version of ‘Safe As Fuck’ album track ‘Maggot At Midnight’ in April.

The band have changed their lyrics of the song to reflect some of rapper Maggot’s recent time on 'Celebrity Big Brother'.

“I changed the lyrics round to reflect a few of my experiences in the house,” Maggot told NME.COM. “I don’t mention any housemates in particular but I do refer to a few things I’d like to have done if the cameras hadn’t been on me all the time.”

He added: “There’s a reference about getting clean underwear, I ran low in the house and had to share with other people – I made sure they were clean though!”

GLC’s post 'Celebrity Big Brother' fate contrasts with that of fellow housemate Preston.

Not only did his band The Ordinary Boys gain a Top Ten hit after he left the house, the group have recently signed a new long-term through their label B-Unique to major Polydor.

Commenting on their band being dropped, GLC's management said: “Goldie Lookin Chain have indeed parted company with Atlantic Records. Apparently the MD needed some home improvements and thought GLC meant “ Great Loft Conversions” – he was therefore sadly dismayed to get back two albums of tunes with songs like 'Your Mother’s Got A Penis' and 'Your Missus Is a Nutter'."

They added the band would continue, having "written a feature film which will be filmed this autumn", the the forthcoming single will come out via the band's own label Gold Dust, adding "The Chain remains the same!"
