Go Forth
Format: Audio CD|Change

on 27 July 2003
I bought Go Forth alongside the earlier album The Cat And The Cobra, after catching these guys play with Mars Volta at London University. I knew nothing of their music but i had heard their name, and the concert was mindblowingly amazing. I fell in love with this band and got the aforementioned albums as soon as i could.
Go Forth is like nothing out there at the moment, it's essentially bass and rhythm driven three piece rock, (the second guitarist that played on The Cat And The Cobra had left the band by this point, leaving the sole guitarist to play amazingly competent pieces that encompass essentially two seperate guitar parts) but it's depth is amazing. Tim Harrington's lyrics are brilliant and frequently hilarious. I could dance all night to this album, but don't let that fool you into thinking this is just something to boogie too. Brilliantly intelligent, and it rocks. This album has not left my cd player and i just cannot get enough. The only thing better than hearing this album is seeing this band live in a small venue.
Daily Dares is also one of the most beautiful instrumental introductions i have ever heard, before exploding into what feels like a 3 minute song crammed down to 50 seconds. There is not a bad song on here. Check out their website too at lessavyfav.com

a fantastic recording from one hell of a fantastic band. with a fusion of different sounds and a wild honey throated vocalist in tim harrington this is a must buy. les savy fav are surely the most exciting U.S underground band sice the pixies. this definately lives up to the standard set by rome (written upside down)

For a bunch of "art school students", (supposedly riding the margins of acceptability) this is boring. As the "in your face" "confrontational chaos" it's marketed as: It is weak. As rock and roll, it is disposable.
It's too bad that even the supposedly inspired are so stagnant these days. More concerned with a politically correct form of hipsterdom, than creation. For a new CD to have so many used copies for sale is self-explanatory. These guys need to get real jobs... and realize that they're as ground-breaking as a melted spork.
