The Go! TeamMemphis Industries
Released: 11th September 2020
The Go! Team return with new single “Cookie
Scene’” - a warped Daisy Age jam to melt
pavements. A bouncing flute pattern, finger
clicks and firing ray guns make the ground for
guest rapper IndigoYaj to skip on. Team main
man Ian Parton met Indigo in Detroit recording
the last Go! Team record “Semicircle” and she
brings the Shante tone on “Cookie Scene”.
With the flute in a locked groove it makes way for
junkshop percussion to go front and centre - built
from a marching drum, a 50p against a glass
bottle, rimshots and the maple on maple of
drumsticks hit together. Says Ian: “The stripped
back swinging percussion of ‘Iko Iko’ by the Dixie
Cups and the loud crunchy shaker in Salt-n-Pepa’s
‘Push It’ were both inspirations and I’ve always
loved the way Bollywood or William Onyeabor
songs would have random laser beams and
electro toms popping up. I wanted to mix the
street corner with the intergalactic, to take
Detroit to outer space.”
Cookie Scene comes on yellow vinyl, backed with
another new track “Free Breakfast Program”.
The Go! Team’s new album is in the works and
set for release in 2021.
