After a string of singles and remixes between 2012 and 2016, go nogo release a first LP of fresh material, including a remake of their indie Dance-fave "And The Devil 2". Guitarist Eric Schemer and singer/songwriter/bassplayer Markus 'Fred' Scholl welcomed producer Manfred Führling on board to give their material a fresh spin. The result of this LP "Main Course" is a livelier, even more colorful and sometimes psychedelia-tinched version of what they have developped into their own style, namely postpunk, indie dance, brit pop, artsy and experimental electronica and whatever their upbringing allowed them to indulge in. This limited edition of 300 vinyl LPs is making the most of their eclectic approach.

go nogo - Main Course

After the hiatus of about 1 year since the publishing of the single “No Reply” (featuring Christina Elisabeth Reichsthaler), go nogo release their first proper album “Main Course” on their home base label Emerald & Doreen. The whole recording process spun over 2 years during which Fred Scholl was looking for the right producer which he eventually found in Manfred Führling, formerly a Tech House enthusiast who brought a lot of analogue gear and great engineer skills to the table. Saying that, he surely had a huge impact on the way the record ended up sounding much more electronic and eventful. Nevertheless, the 8 songs would not shine in the
go nogo catalogue as a distinct piece of work if it wasn’t for Eric Schemer’s Indie flavored guitar bravura. The groove department has advanced beyond the regular four to the floor formula which is also at work in “And The Devil 2” or “Breaking News”. But you can hear beats that have their roots in Alternative R'n'B (“Caravan”), Electronica (“Not To be Missed”) and Breakbeat (“Room Too Small”), all held together by the distinctive singing of Fred Scholl, which has recently been compared to the 80s legend Lloyd Cole by label compiler Jerry Bouthier (Kitsuné Maison). Lyrical themes deal with contemporary issues of digital angst and social media abuse (“None of Your Business”), the advertiser’s roles of creating needs (“Lost In Confusion”) or the challenge of staying authentic in a world of levelling (“Dare”). The Songs have interludes that stress a certain fancy for experimental music, working against the formulaic idioms of songwriting.
