Grip Like a Vice

Lead "cheerleader" Ian Parton created this pastiche using vocal samples from a 1985 documentary, found sounds and live drums. "Most Go! Team songs are about four or five different ideas stapled together, normally from widely divergent sources," Parton explained. "On this song, I was really interested in how super-cheeky kind of electro early-Eighties kind of rock-party song could be welded onto something with a more kind of dark, garage-y, Sonic Youth-y kind of feel, as well." He also experimented with "sassy Eighties lady rapping rubbing shoulders with discordant warped guitars," which was "uncharted territory" for him.
