The eight-man Newport, Wales collective known as Goldie Lookin' Chain is providing what was missing from music: Welsh rappers. Often likened to the Beastie Boys, its debut long-player, Straight Outta Newport, is chock full of humorous tales told in the distinct voices of its individual members. Catapulting into the public's consciousness after the success of its Website, www.youknowsit.co.uk, and a series of DIY demos, Goldie Lookin' Chain raps about smoking, going out, smoking, life in Newport, smoking -- you get the picture. Despite its very British take on things, the group's offhand delivery makes Straight Outta Newport something anyone can laugh at and relate to.
