"The jig is pumped up thanks to rock solid Melbourne quintet The Go Set"
"…trying to describe the sound of The Go Set is like trying to imagine The Pogues and The Clash having a late night jam in a local pub with an endless supply of booze."
"The Go Set manage to tell stories and churn out powerful rock tunes... All power to them."
"Explosive, dynamic, and engaging. There is no wonder this band is fast developing a legion of the converted. Probably one of the best live shows you will see all year."
"Singer/songwriter Justin Keenan delivers straight from the heart punk tunes which delve into political subjects, but are more about having a wild time & jumping around beved up chanting away in full voice."
The Go Set is a unique musical experience. Since 2002, they've released six albums and clocked up thousands of kilometres around Australia and internationally performing their raw, chaotic, and yet intimate, live shows united with powerful songs and a strong social conscience. By combining folk instruments with distorted guitars and timeless rock n' roll energy, the Go Set is an experience unlike anything else.
The band has performed at Australia’s best venues and festivals including the Forum Theatre, Falls Festival, Pyramid Rock, Queenscliff Music Festival, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Apollo Bay and St Kilda Festival. Aside from extensive touring, they have shared stages with The Living End, The White Stripes, The Bouncing Souls, Flogging Molly and Weddings, Parties, Anything.
2011 witnessed the band complete its third tour throughout Europe and the UK, developing a strong fan base everywhere. 2012 will see the release of album number six, a self titled career defining rock n roll oeuvre, produced by renowned Australian producer Paul McKercher (You Am I, The Living End, Midnight Oil, Something for Kate). Tracked live through the old Neve desk at St Kilda's rocking Hothouse Studios, the album features eleven songs refined by months on the road & represents a band at the top of its game.
