The Go, 'Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride' (Cass)

6
Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride
Critical Mass
Label: Cass

by Jon Young

When Jack White quit the Go to launch his White Stripes, he was probably leery of pure nostalgia, since this Detroit group's only ambition is to pass for an obscure '60s garage band. Still, singer Bobby Harlow and company are very good at their craft, mixing cheesy psychedelic rave-ups and callow love songs to make a big, fun sound that requires no knowledge of history. For starters, check out the buzzing "Down a Spiral," which could come from the soundtrack of a trashy exploitation flick about the tragedy of teenage drug abuse.
