The Go! Team – Bottle Rocket

I would have posted this about a year ago had it not been for its omnipresence around the world of the blog. With the gushing noise almost abated it seems appropriate to reintroduce the majestic globe of activity that is ‘Bottle Rocket’ as the band set out on some prestigious slots supporting Sonic Youth and the Flaming Lips. The version included here is the original, more appetising, cut that includes all the copyrighted stuff that had to be subsequently removed. It reminds me of someone close, chock full of interesting sideshows but featuring a central theme that is breathlessly invigorating. I’ve played it to a few people and their reaction was one of stunned silence. Granted, the initial meets can be overwhelming but once you’ve tamed the galloping brass, cannibal drums and a vocal performance that must have required a musket for tonsils it will undoubtedly have you making like a rag doll in a tornado. A modern day classic. KD
