Golden Millennium was a glam rock revival supergroup formed in 1999 composed of Dean Hsieh, Travis Higdon, Tom Hudson, and Britt Daniel.

Overview[edit]

To commemorate the end of the 2nd millennium, Peek-A-Boo Records released the Golden Millennium EP on December 31, 1999. Peek-A-Boo labelmates Dean Hsieh #The 1-4-5s, Teen Titans, The Wontons#, Travis Higdon #The 1-4-5s, The Kiss Offs, Black Lipstick#, Tom Hudson #Silver Scooter#, and Britt Daniel #Spoon, Drake Tungsten, Skellington, The Alien Beats) got together in 1999 and formed the '70s glam-inspired supergroup Golden Millennium. As the label's website reports, Golden Millennium formed as a joke when Hsieh and Higdon bought matching gold-glitter Gibson Les Paul guitars.[2] Coincidentally, Hudson had gold-glitter drums, and the idea of forming a glam band was conceived.[2] The three recruited Daniel on bass, and the group learned a slew of covers and a few originals with the intent of playing only one show.[2] The performance went so well that Golden Millennium recorded the Golden Millennium EP and played one final reprise show at the close of 1999.[2]
