THE GO! TEAM
Australian Tour January 2008
On top of their appearances at the Falls Festival (Lorne, Vic & Marion Bay, Tas), Field Day Festival (Sydney) & Southbound Festival (Busselton, WA) The Go! Team will be playing a Melbourne Show at the Hi Fi Bar on Thursday January 3.
It’s been long, far too long, but they’re back with a box fill of tricks & a fistful of treats. Once again it’s The Go! Team, with another treble-heavy adventure in audio, their second album Proof of Youth.
Its predecessor, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, came from nowhere to win plaudits & fans alike worldwide with its hybrid of old school hip hop, noise band work outs, TV action theme tunes & Motown horn blasts. The live show, all electro hand claps, duelling drum kits & garage band guitar thrashings earned them no shortage of fans over the course of two Australian tours, including the 2006 Big Day Out.
Bombing melodies into the stone-age with its needle-in-the-red anti-production approach the new album, Proof of Youth, lurches from bubblegum pop to white noise in a heartbeat, & live The Go! Team are sure to step things up a notch further when they hit Australia this summer.
