GG06 reunites the former 10cc rhythm section of Kevin Godley and Graham Gouldman, as a both a songwriting team and a recording unit. The union was first mooted in the early '90s, but pressure of work (Godley's career as a video director, Gouldman's solo career) saw plans held in abeyance until 2005, and proceed painfully slowly thereafter. By mid 2007, the duo had completed just five songs, "The Same Road," "Johnny Hurts," and "Hooligan Crane" (all available only via the duo's website), and two songs subsequently included on 10cc's All the Hits and More anthology, "Beautiful Loser Dot Com" and "Son of Man." The duo also made a handful of live appearances when Godley agreed to guest on a couple of songs at select dates during Gouldman's spring 2007 U.K. tour. They performed "Beautiful Loser Dot Com" and 10cc's "Old Wild Men." Footage from the London show is scheduled for DVD release in late 2006.
