The Go! Team — The Power Is On
A glorious mess, combining half-remembered Sundays dreading the start of Ski Sunday
on BBC2 with the style and sass of a New York playground. I've read interviews with the founder member of The Go! Team; he's apparently unhappy with how American Thunder, Lightning, Strike
sounds. To which I say: bobbins. Part of what makes this record so great is the unexpected mix of different sounds. Unlike, say, Lemon Jelly, who are quite content to stay noodling in their little Oliver Postgate world, The Go! Team rise above simple nostalgia, creating something new and exciting from battered old C90 cassettes.
