Midway through a podcast interview late last year, the Go! Team mastermind Ian Parton raised a tantalizing counterfactual. What if the groundswell around the collage-pop project’s brilliant debut album, 2004’s Thunder, Lightning, Strike, had been a bit less deafening? “It happened too quickly,” Parton said of the Go! Team’s initial flush of success. Noting that there will be a “a certain contingent” for whom the UK six-piece will always be associated with the era of mp3 blogs and Iraq War protests, he added, “I prefer to be a slow-burn band.”

Hell, I’ll admit it: It’s not easy for me to separate the Go! Team from fond memories of listening to their debut as a newbie critic for this website (thankfully, my Muppet-themed review wasn’t the one we ran), or from tales of neighborhood kids joining the band onstage during the 2005 incarnation of what is now Pitchfork Music Festival. But Parton may have belatedly gotten his wish, as the Go! Team’s next several solid-to-great albums generally received more muted praise, leaving room for listeners to find the group at their own pace. Whether crossing paths with Public Enemy or Best Coast, hunkering down as a solo act or getting the band back together, the Go! Team demonstrated a remarkably consistent vision. Their sixth album, Get Up Sequences Part One, completed as Parton was battling the debilitating auditory effects of M’eni`ere’s disease, is another intermittently thrilling block party from a utopia where time and genre collapse.

Ist etwa die Zeit f”ur The Go! Team im Jahre 2004 stehengeblieben? Gleich zu Beginn dieses Get Up Sequences Part One m”ochte man darauf schw”oren, wieder mitten in einem der grossartigen Schelmenst”ucke in der Art des Thunder, Lightning, Strike gelandet zu sein, dem Deb”utalbum dieses Kollektivs aus Brighton. Denn es ist so etwas wie ein Schlemmer-Cocktail aus 80er-Jahre-Hip-Hop-Vibes, Girls Group, Funk mit einer kleinen Spur Punk, Schulorchester und Teenager-Pop. Das vor allem wie ein total unregelm”assig zusammengeflicktes Patchwork daherkommende Universum von Ian, Ninja, Nia, Simone, Sam und Adam hat einen ganz eigenen Charakter. Eine Klangsignatur, die in jedem einzelnen Song dieses sechsten Albums explodiert. Get Up Sequences Part One vertreibt im Handumdrehen die postpandemische Verdrossenheit, springt beliebig hin und her, vom Boden zur Decke und gegen die Wand und wieder zur”uck. Go! Team sind n”amlich weit und breit die Einzigen, bei denen wir gleichzeitig Steel Drum, Fl”ote, Drumcomputer, Rap-Beat, Bollywood-Sound, Bl”aserfanfaren, Glockenspiel, etwas Motown und Paukenschlag zu h”oren bekommen! Die Feel-Good-Platte mit dem Sommersound des Jahres 2021 schlechthin, die alle anderen weit hinter sich l”asst. – Marc Zisman
