pierrelefou What an incredible debut. Day-glo '70s poppy hip-hop, reminds me of something you'd hear on an episode of Sesame Street or The Electric Company. When this one came out I had never heard anything like it. Favorite track: Friendship Update.

Hungover Crocodile There's a certain aesthetic to this band, and I like it a lot. It's that of watching a high school football game with your friends on a chilly autumn evening. Very nostalgic. I just don't like the interludes on these albums, they don't feel like real finished songs and they disrupt the flow. Sometimes they're even annoying in the case of "Air rd gtr" Favorite track: Everyone's a V.I.P. To Someone.

about

The first and solo practitioners of cheerleader punk. The Go! Team’s Thunder, Lightning, Strike is an explosion of colour and energy that evokes images of high school sports meets, inner-city summer days and the liberty of youth.

The six-piece’s maximalist sound, with its two drums, choral chants, air-raid siren guitars, record-scratching and strong overriding melodies made the album impossible to ignore upon release in 2004. Recorded in the basement of Ian Parton’s parent’s house, the album maintains its scratchy, DIY aesthetic despite its vastly ambitious scale.
