PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT "The Go! Team" nor "The Go Team". It is the demo of the short-lived South African screamo indie art-rock band called: "GO TEAM!" Subtle difference but yeah, there it is...

INFO:
five songs, four interludes, a hidden remix and a bunch of live footage make up this debut anthology from cape town’s first screamo project : GO TEAM! …a band who begun mid-september 2002, started gigging late november and disbanded early january 2003 after playing a total of five explosive performances …a band who ever intended to be ‘just a summer fling’ …GO TEAM! initially planned this recording as a nostalgic attempt to archive their efforts before they went their separate ways …however with the help of nifty records they were persuaded to take it further and make it available to a wider audience… … .

PRESSING INFO: Limited run of 63 CDRs. Hand numbered, stencilled, spray painted and sewn canvass covers…

MUSICIANS: Johann Loubser - guitar, Gio Ghignone - bass, Dunx Robertson - keyboards and lead vocals on track three, Owen Robertson - drums, Dylan Jones - vocals, Tim Ferguson - vocals.

GIG COMMENTS:
“As a fan of all sorts of independent music my mind was challenged completly. I have heard screamo but never on a level like GO TEAM!”

Track Name: Pitter Patter
pitter patter
a flurry of beats
rhythm rising to crescendo
{ burst } it batters you

interfere to clarify
but this is no melody { that has been played }

so it splutters
gasps for air
as an unseen tree falls alone : silent

membranes crease fists clench
consumed by essence advance : blind

struck spark
a flame engulfs
vexed : rising to crescendo
{ burst } it batters you again and again and again and... .. .

stop! this has to stop
there are absolutes and i will absolutely not

so it spluttered
gasped for air
and an unseen tree fell alone : silent
Track Name: Street Car Scene
when your smiles spread to your face
your procelin heart won't break
when your trained eyes will obey you
nothing moves and nothing gets though

how discreet, street car scene on your movie screen
while travelling light, wear sneakers, jersey and jeans

introducing your new martyr
exemplar to build and burn down
i'll be your martyr now

introducing your new martyr
Track Name: This is Photoshop
we are all gifted
experts of course
even the ones who crashed
to join our populous
wildly creative
we are the elite

we are the mass market
our appeal is at hand
free independant spirits
who wear uniforms

saturated incompetance
the chic obese
we package our souls
to sell at studio rates

this is only a job
i keep telling myself
over and over again

it's not design
it's photoshop

this is not for you
don't you see it?
we're already suffocating
there is no room
you don't want this
it's too late for us
save yourself
Track Name: [INTERLUDE] Alpha Male, Bravo Eunich!
"See, I'm a hardcore gymnast. No way jumping up and down yelling 'GO TEAM GO!' is gonna satisfy me."

this is only a test!
go team go team go!

"You know what? ...count me in!"
Track Name: How Many Times Have I Told You to Wash Your Hands?
you touched my heart and then you left me
with nothing but your fingerprints

now i want you gone, i have to start over
but how can i remove your {stains?}

the more i wash, the more i rinse, i can not erase this shame and pain

i soaked my heart and it turned grey
all signs of life have been drained

my eyes they burn from amonia
as i attempt to pin it to my {sleeve}

for the world to see this heart is no longer mine {no!}
i gave it away i denounce all rights i ever {had}
everything i've tried, but nothing {works}

this song is my heart break
this rhythm despair
one step forward two steps back
one hand means two more grabbin' on

and when the hole in my chest finally closes
and the hollow sound of my no heart echos in me
Track Name: Rock 'n Roll Eulogy
this is dedicated to the loving memory of myself
the part of myself i have put to rest
this eulogy of self, my last will and testament

a final resting place
for past disapointments
i've buried the anger .ANGER
i've buried the fear .FEAR
with nothing left to mourn
i'll walk away

i throw the last handfull of dirt
on a life once lost and bury any trace
this soil and depth will redeem me

the quicker i can move on
the quicker i can forget

wash the last of the past off my hands and stamp
the present from my shoes

i want nothing of this memory to linger
and the quicker i clean and stamp it away

it was never your fault
