Benji Barton -- A God among men and conceived by Zeus and Aphrodite themselves -- decided to start a band. With a voice like an angel and a haircut that would make Sinatra look like a hobo, he continued to break hearts across the land, taking no prisoners. Some say he's a myth, a unicorn mixed with a bigfoot type being. Some say he's capable of making a woman pregnant just by a single glance. This is the story of The Gold Party. "Recalling modern bands like Phoenix and Passion Pit, as well as the early recordings of Depeche Mode, The Gold Party make criminally infectious dance rock for the new wave set, but are equally comfortable pulling out a heartfelt torch song."
