The Go - "Don't Take Her Away"
I'll never forget how nervous I was the first time I crossed the Hudson River from New Jersey to go to New York City's Bowery and CBGB's to see The Go. I was a 19 year kid who rarely strayed from the safe environs of the NJ club scene. Hearing their clean, jangly Power Pop sound made the graffiti covered walls of CBGB's less threatening. The experience opened up NYC as a club destination for me and The Peppermint Lounge and Mud Club became new haunts. The Go were from nearby Yonkers, NY and played CB's as well as many other tri-state area clubs regularly. Unfortunately they only managed to release an independant 4 song EP in 1980. Despite coming close to getting a recording contract they called it quits a couple years later . The Go were Kenny Dutch : Guitars/Vocal, Tom Conte : Guitars/Vocal, George Peters : Bass/Vocals, Joe Brya : Drums/Percussion Kenny and Tom still play in a band called Hipripper.
