The Go - "Instant Reaction"

The Go - Instant ReactionOver a year ago I wrote about the power pop band The Go from New York City. They have finally released a CD of their own on Japan's Wizzard's In Vinyl label. (Why is power pop so big in Japan?) This collection takes the rare "Instant Reaction" E.P. - the only vinyl released by the band - and adds 17 other tracks recorded by the band themselves but never released plus 2 radio spots. The CD is loaded with power pop gems that feature jangly guitars and thwacking drums - no small feat for tracks recorded in their garage on a Teac reel-to-reel over 20 years ago. The songs are strong enough to make you wonder why this band never landed on a major label.

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. My thanks to Ken for allowing me to post the bands music.

Visit The Go's website to learn more about the band and find places to buy the CD.

Go to Wizzard's In Vinyl site to order the CD.

This stuff is very good, but I prefer Rockphonics.
