Black can be pointed out as a link between progressive rock and glitter, if anybody actually wants such a thing. Kestrel was best known as a group that had a Mellotron player in the band; this fact alone has managed to keep the sole Kestrel LP in print. Goldie was better known for its singles on the Bronze label, especially "Making Up Again," a hit single for several months in 1978. Some of the former members of Kestrel were involved in this combo, although ex-Goldie members don't seem to be going to a lot of trouble to take credit for their involvement in the band. One of Black's songwriting collaborators of the late '70s was named Peter MacDonald. Prior to forming Goldie in 1976, Black had been touring with David Bowie's Spiders from Mars band.
That connection may have been enough reason to label any subsequent Black product as glitter. The glib cheer of that genre is challenged by the fact that the flip side to "Making Up Again" is actually entitled "Time to Kill," perhaps suggesting an alternative solution to the same problem. The Goldie band stayed together for four years, becoming one of the pop legends of their home stomping grounds, Blyth Town, and appearing numerous times on television programs such as Top of the Pops. When the group broke up in 1980, Black went on to form 747 and play with the Brendan Healy Band. ~ Eugene Chadbourne, Rovi
