The Go! Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike album
Ladyflash by The Go! Team, taken from the album Thunder, Lightning, Strike.
Thunder, Lightning, Strike is the debut studio album by English band The Go! Team. It was released on British label Memphis Industries on 13 September 2004. The album was produced by the band with Gareth Parton, brother of band member Ian Parton, in their parents' garage in Swansea, and mixed at The Fortress Studios and Bluestone in London. Thunder, Lightning, Strike was released to critical acclaim and later nominated for the 2005 Mercury Music Prize
Thunder, Lightning, Strike (LP, Album). Prepare to heed the hype yet again. Just over a year since the internet made The Go! Team's UK debut a substantial Western import success, Memphis Industries' lawyers have finally cleared the sample happy, sunshine pop-hop amalgam for proper North American release, now remastered with two former b-sides mixed into the final tracklisting.
Their debut album, Thunder, Lightning, Strike, is a refreshing blast of Day-Glo bubble-dance-pop that could crack a smile on even the most frozen of faces. The sound of the record is a slap in the face to audio purists; it sounds like it was recorded on a truck stop-quality cassette in a very damp, crowded basement.
Team - Thunder, Lightning, Strike Following on from the release of single Junior Kickstart last year and lead single The Power Is On this year, The Go! Team finally unleash their new album Thunder, Lightning, Strike. Now if you've had the pleasure of listening to these two releases, you'll know they show an unashamed disregard for following the rules. The album concludes with the rather mellow Everyone's A VIP To Someone. Definitely the more sentimental of all the tracks, it closes the album in style with it's lush strings, banjo, horns and kazoo solo. Only until the melody is firmly in your head do they decide to let the crashing drums loose.

Team's excellent debut Thunder, Lightning, Strike. In addition, the record was reportedly given a gift certificate to the remastering day spa, a process with the potential to thoughtlessly drain some of the group's messy, homemade charm in the name of fidelity
The Go! Team's debut album, a glorious pile-up of mangled samples and lo-fi home recordings, is now attracting widespread acclaim - but its path to Mercury nomination and commercial success has been anything but smooth. Recorded in a garage in Swansea, mixed almost entirely in mono and offering a headspinning brew of Northern soul, electro, cheerleader chants, Charlie Brown-styled piano and abrasive, Sonic Youth-inspired loops, the Go! Team's debut album Thunder, Lightning, Strike is one of the most unusual and innovative records of recent times.
Honestly, I'd go ing mad if I tried to categorize this album under a genre. I wouldn't call it rock, a heavy amount of sampling is present. I wouldn't call it hip-hop, unless you can name me a popular hip-hop record with distorted guitars, double dutch chants, and police sirens.
Thunder, Lighting, Strike doesn’t waste any time getting out of the gate, with album opener Panther Dash really giving you a good idea of what you’re in for over the next 40-or-so minutes: pure, feel-good energy. I still listen to this album over a decade after its initial release because I just love its insistence that I have a good time. So yes, the album you can stream right now on Apple Music, this site, and everywhere else is the slightly less, but still amazing US version, but that’s okay. If you only ever hear the US version, forget I ever said this and you’ll never know the difference.
