Go Go Thunder –The Race

Go Go Thunder –The Race/ Mrs. Mann –RCA 2494 (1975 UK)

Stretching it a bit to remain with the previous Hot Rod theme, Go Go Thunder’s (great name) single is a real oddity. Based on a thumping drum pattern, semi-hard rock guitar licks, roaring motor sounds and lyrics alluding to the Indianapolis sun and exploding cars It has an exuberant over –production and it’s a mighty fun experience. The B side is very much like an up tempo Wizzard number…Mrs. Mann???? Again who is behind this single? (Arnold, Martin, Morrow?)

In my little world, these three chaps feature most strongly as the brains behind the Chopper imprint (which only had the one good record, if you ask me - the one by the 45s), but which released, ooh a good dozen or so. Thing is, that's only a small aside in their bigger picture:

Thanks Sateve...once again you supply...I see they were behind the Earwigs single on DJM -any good?

Earwig: don't know, sorry. Haven't heard many of these supposedly 'glam'-ish singles at all, really. Their Butterscotch thing gets my vote though. Can you imagine having written that many hits?
