The Go–Howl On The Haunted Beat You Ride–Cass Records
Home to the sound of Motown, Eminem and The White Stripes-Detroit’s knack for producing great music uncannily precedes it. The Motor City has again come up trumps with another musical force in the shape of four-piece rockers The Go, fronted by Bobby Harlow-a gifted singer-songwriter who is their chief architect. The Go’s concoction of psychedelic rock, infused by guitar and piano arrangements and upbeat vocal harmonies has given birth to an album that could be a lost 1960’s masterpiece catapulted into the heartbeat of 2007- thanks to the countless influences evident throughout such as The Kinks, John Lennon & Lou Reed.
