Hollow Back takes place in a decaying north of England town gradually approaching it's end. The men, young and old, are disappearing, and those left behind speak in low tones about a local legend: The White Lady of Hadenchurch.

Like a twisted Narnia tale (it even has a fawn - albeit not quite as innocent as Mr Tumnus), for me, this story is about the fear of getting older. Some of its imagery was inspired by two paintings: Autumn by Bill Martin and Untitled by Nick Hyde.

So I decided to compile my own personal 'Best Of Golden Death Music' collection as an introduction to his music. There are poppy songs like Hopeless Games and the equally brilliant Painted Sands (from his forthcoming Strange Mess album), upbeat numbers (Song For Lucien), and beautiful roaming pieces of music like Did That Affect Your Mind? (which samples serial killer Aileen Wuornos to add a disturbing edge), the grungy Hollywood which would not sound out of place on a Screaming Trees album, and extended psychedelic jams like - well, take your pick.
All of Golden Death Music's albums can be downloaded from Bandcamp - name your price. With so much to discover, it shouldn't be difficult for anyone to find their own favorites.
For the songs below, where I couldn't find a Youtube video, I've linked to the track on Bandcamp.
1. Hopeless Games
3. Painted Sands
5. Did That Affect Your Mind?
6. Inner Facelift
7. Song For Lucien
8. Defender of the Future
