About The Album
The Go! Team return with their new album “Get Up Sequences Part One” out on 02 July 2021 via Memphis Industries featuring the singles Cookie Scene and World Remember Me Now.

On “Get Up Sequences Part One” Ian, Ninja, Nia, Simone, Sam and Adam have created a musical world distinctly of their own making. A place where routine is outlawed and perfection is the enemy. Where Ennio Morricone meets the Monkees armed with flutes, glockenspiels, steel drums and a badass analogue attitude. We’re talking widescreen, four- track, channel hopping sounds that are instantly recognisable.

In The Go! Team's world, old’s cool, the future's bright and melody is the star. Just check the second cut “Cookie Scene” with a bouncing flute and junk shop percussion it introduces guest rapper Indigo Yaj who delivers an old school vocal that continues this sonic trip. Pow channels Curtis Mayfield and enter stage centre, the inimitable Ninja in full flow and you don’t stop, you wont stop to this flute driven free for all.

By way of demonstrating The Go! Team’s old school manifesto, comes the 'needle-in-the-red' “I Love You Better” a defiant message to an ex love, spelling out exactly how he’s fucked up – and then there’s those steel drums. Following that comes the soda fountain soul courtesy of “A Bee Without Its Sting”, a groovy protest song that makes its point with a tambourine – hey only The Go! Team.

The musical wagon train then takes you into the wide screen, windswept western that is Tame the Great Plains heading off into a polyrhythmic panorama that’s full of hope. Slappin’ you back to reality comes “World Remember Me Now”, a timely reminder that when you’re lost in the routine of life, you can always count on The Go! Team.

About The Album
“Anyone who is tired of their fantastical amalgam of old-school hip-hop, funk and pop is tired of music.” - The Guardian.

“The pure pop dream still burns bright in the hearts of The Go! Team. For that, they're as vital as they've ever been.” - The Independent.

“joyous and life affirming” - Q Magazine.

Our Review from 2011:
The Go! Team return with album number three, including guest appearances from Bethany Best Coast and Satomi from Deerhoof. If you bought the previous two Go! Team albums then you're in for another treat here, albeit one that doesn't differ much from its predecessors. Charging headlong into a blistering mash-up of b-boy hip hop breaks, catchy indie guitar hooks, easy-pop melodies and bratty rap (all with nuff treble to make your ears ring), "Rolling Blackouts" is like being mugged by hand-clapping ADD tweenies in an inner city playground. Boisterous, energetic, and with an infectious charm, it's hard not to love The Go! Team's sunny demeanour.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Barry says: It's exactly what you'd expect from the Go! Team, this it's bright and bold and chaotic and absolutely on-brand. Summery steel drums and syncopated percussion, offset tinny melodies and jangling percussion, topped with jubilant vocal swathes. Brilliantly bright and wonderfully fun.
