ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Red Light GO are part of the new wave of electro rock. They produce simple infectious pop songs delivered with a raw energy. Showing a real pop sensibility in their song writing, Red Light Go combine some of the best bits from the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's and produce a sound which is fresh and modern. The sound encompasses a number of genres, from pop to punk, indie to electro, rock to rave. The band has been likened to, amongst others, Depeche mode, New Order and The Cure as well as up to date acts like The Killers, Kaiser Chiefs and Snow Patrol.

Formed in 2005 the band released their debut EP ‘Was It You’ and digital releases of ‘Take the Picture’ on Chromium Records and ‘Writing on the Wall’ on Moyst Records that year

2006 saw the release of their self titled debut album, live radio sessions on both local and national radio including the Radio 6 breakfast show and Pulse Radio. The band also headlined at some of the regions biggest venues. They also received critical acclaim at various festivals, including performances on the Main stage at Ashton Court Festival and Stroud Fringe Festival.

Red Light Go have recently undergone a few line-up changes and are now working on a follow up album to reflect the energy and rawness of the new line-up.

Quotes
an eccentric pop fashion that hints towards Numan and Depeche Mode,
energetic edginess in their sound that makes them well worth a listen.
(The Mag)

Poppy, sprightly synth rock
(Venue magazine)

Hard hitting hooky synth pop with the emphasis on their catchy songs
(CD Baby)

Sigue Sigue Sputnik and Billy Idol starting an impromptu jam down some boozer
(Whisperin and Hollerin)

A melt pot of Gary Numan and Marc Almond
(Moles Club - Bath)

catchy sing-along choruses, and their breeziness is quite infectious

Steven Davies

A very bright and vibrant album, well produced and catchy!
When I first listened to this album I thought I would kill 2 birds with one stone and give it a listen whilst doing some household chores! It soon became apparent that this was not a 'half listen' album and I found myself listening to it intently and forgetting the household tasks!!! This, from me, is a comliment as such great albums like Hot Fuss (Killers) X&Y (Coldplay) did not get my full attention first time around so, it just goes to prove that this album has pulling power!! It is well produced and tight musically and that fact that I didn't find myself trying to disect each instrument makes me firmly belive this is a well contructed musical masterpiece from Bath!! Well done and good lucm with all the sales.

This debut full-length from Red Light Go is strong and innovative
First off, it has to be said that the packaging for this record is amazing. Obviously a lot of thought has gone into the fold-out digi-pack and the attendant artwork. The CD on-body is designed as an EP, with a heavy-weight feel to it (or is that my imagination). Major points for ingenuity here. The tracklisting continues the theme, with the album split into two "sides" of five songs, each starting and ending with the sound of static as occurs when a record deck is pressed into action.

All this and I haven't even pressed play yet!

Side one begins with "Must Be There" and the amazing "Funny Little Dance" and it's immediately clear that we're in 80's territory here. It's easy to see why the band have gained airplay all over the place. There are definite hints of Depeche Mode, but, rather than sounding tired, things stay fresh throughout the whole of the album. Side One closer "If U Ever" features some nice piano/synth interplay in its early stages, with another hooky chorus, while Side Two starts strongly with "Face It", possibly the album's best song, and "Writing on the Wall" coming on strong.

Occasionally, as on "Was it You" and "Repetition" things descend into guitar-driven territory, which is a shame, as tracks such as "Take the Picture" show that the band are at their strongest when their songs are propelled by synths.

So, this debut full-length from Red Light Go is strong and innovative, but I can't help wishing that they'd had as much time and simple genius to put into the music what was applied to the packaging.

Definitely a band to check out live as I can well imagine them putting on a great show.

Kevin from Bristol Rocks

catchy, cool retro
This is sooo good. A CD in black that looks like a vinyl record, it even has grooves on the top. I love this, I have been showing it to people! The CD 'Red Light Go' and its cardboard sleeve are without doubt the most original packaging that I have seen!
So what of the content? RLG play retro synth music in the style of Gary Numan et al.
'Must be true' is the first track and I love this as much as the packaging. This track is simply brilliant, it is well recorded and if it is possible to be 'Retro Original', this is what it is.
Track 2 'Funny little dance' does what it says on the label. So listen to it and dance. In a funny little way.
'Bright idea' is more of a guitar based track. I prefer the retro synth stuff. Next track please!
'Was it You'......Ahh, that's better, catchy, cool retro synth.
'Face it'.....More of the same, catchy, cool retro!
As for the rest of the tracks, all excellent.
You have to get a copy of this CD. Show the brilliant design/artwork to your chums and wack the CD in the car stereo. Remember that you got this tip from Bristol Rocks!

Dancy, fun, energetic, good drive - go buy and dance!
I stumbled upon this band at a festival in Bristol on a very hot Sunday afternoon. 5 degrees cooler and I would have done what is an absolute must with this one: dance! Fresh electro pop rock straight from the early eighties, transported into the 21th century with great energy and a happy holiday vibe – impossible to stay still, impossible to stay serious and /or grumpy – it’s just too good.
Dancy, fun, energetic, good drive – and the live fun is brought straight onto cd.
A little bit of OMD, a little bit of Magazine and a lot of rock, new and interesting enough to satisfy a slightly older audience, who might still remember the early eighties, rocky enough to go well with the indie rock audience who just likes the sound of the eighties - go buy and dance!

KC - Bristol Evening Post

very catchy sing-along choruses, breeziness is quite infectious
Bath's five piece electro indie band follow up last year' home produced EP with a debut album that doesn't sound at all home-grown.
These 10 tracks show a lot of the spirit of the 80s and their prominent synthesizer sound doesn't move too far away from Gary Numan, The Cure and Depeche mode. There are chiming guitars, that typical retro glassy-sounding synth, a very fine bass, spot on drums and a singer who has the swagger of the time but also some of that robotic lack of emotion in his voice.
Red Light Go write very catchy sing-along choruses, especially Was It you and the almost punky Writing On The Wall, and their breeziness is quite infectious. They also show a degree of inventiveness although at times they could show a bit more ambition. Repetition is the albums only weak track.
