THE GO GO CULT – PRESS PACK
Formed in 2010 and hailing from Reading, we are the Go Go Cult. Our mission is to spread our distinctive and Wild brand of sleazy Hypnotic 50s psycho-delic garage punk and to warp minds with our infectious rhythms wherever we appear. “……..The chemical mix is explosive. And it will shake your pants.” Raw Ramp Mag, July 2012 This is us: Go Go Nige: Voice of the dead, hypnotic rhythm, tremolo and fuzz guitar Go Go Matt: Ambassador of screaming lead guitar and werewolf howls Go Go Johnny: Hypno rhythm and voodoo beats (Ex Vibes/Purple Things) Go Go Leo: Chief of the low end swamp bass rumble and banshee screams
Music genres: Alternative garage punk, psychobilly, surf, rockabilly, trash “Dealing in’ 80s sleaze, ‘50s swagger and ‘70s salaciousness, Reading’s The Go Go Cult are an ambitious upcoming band with their fingers in a number of musical pies……..” Tom Williams, Vive Le Rock Magazine
Who do we sound like? Think the Cramps, Rezillos, Link Wray, The Tall Boys/Early Meteors a bit of surf guitar (Dick Dale and the Del-Tones, The Surfaris) with a touch of Johnny Cash and Siouxsie mixed in. “50s psychedelic punk, anyone? Yes. Go Go Cult sound like being in a 1950s motorbike gang in America, pushed to the musical limits from the constant threat of nuclear holocaust.” Tim Hooper for BBC Introducing @ The Oakford Social Club.

GO GO MUSIC FOR GO GO PEOPLE !
Spellbinding, sunny garage pop-stomp from London saturated with primal riffs and beats and spikily sugar-coated vocals. Girl group melodies, mystic organ sounds and punchy bass ascend into the heart-shaped soundwave.
“Glamorous rock 'n' roll with some Spector-esque moments, this is like The Ramones swapping leather jackets with 'The Leader Of The Pack'" CLASH
“Taking their name – and the strong ’60s girl-band vibe – from The Shangri-Las, Love L.U.V. sound as sweet as sugar on ‘You Do Something ‘ and ‘Lily Anne’. The two garage-pop gems are as cute as they are catchy, and they formed the band’s impressive debut single release earlier this year." NME
"...the beautifully crafted spectral pop of 'You Do Something' already sounds like a classic to our ears. Their girl group harmonies will draw comparisons with Phil Spector's pop aesthetic, but theirs is a harder psyche edged sound displayed on the storming garage pop of 'Lily Anne'" THE QUIETUS, FESTIVAL NO 6 REVIEW
“It's Monday morning, your life sucks, then suddenly you play “Come See Me” by Love L.U.V. and you've never felt more alive” Bit Candy
“That band that puts stars in your eyes and makes you fall in love” Dingus
"London’s garage popsters" London On The Inside
“Drips with the attitude of The Long Blondes one minute and giddy infatuation the next” God Is In The TV Zine
"All the fuzzed-up ’60s, doo-wop girl-band harmonies you could possibly want” Mad Mackeral
