The Go! Team – Thunder, Lightning, Strike (2004)

January 29, 2010

We came here to rock the microphone / while Dave breaks the record down to the bone

Feeling more lo-fi, as well as more self-assured than their second album, the Go! Team’s debut is still an instant party album; with samples from westerns, cop shows, and everything from 60s pop and funk to late 70s hip-hop, Thunder, Lightning, Strike is an irresistibly retro piece of dance music canon; this album is covered in a rose-tinted nostalgic fog for an era that draws a sharp contrast from the one we live in today, sounding like the soundtrack to a never-made 1983 action show, with all the car chases, sword fights, fearlessness and optimism intact
