THE GO SET: “These are the days” – Documentary film

Melbourne band The Go Set are soon to release a full length documentary film titled “These are the days”.

Captured over ten years of touring, more than a thousand live shows, six albums, and a vast array of characters, tales, and chaos. Interviews with bands and punters, festivals, and life on the road, the film depicts an independent band following it’s dream all over the world, and the adversity and struggle in remaining uncompromising and truly independent.

The Go Set: Another Round in Melbourne Town

For wee awhile The Go Set were a band that would annually put out a full length studio album and invariably that years release would land within the top 3 of Shite’n’Onions best of year list. The Rising making the cherished #1 spot in 2008. Then things went quite, very quite. So quite that I thought that the band may have departed this mortal world – it didn’t help that the web site was hijacked by a brand of designer jeans (weird eh?). Well, 2011 sees the band back and doing what they do best – playing really frigging raw and loud. Another Round In Melbourne Town is a 19 track, no frills, live album of punk-rock-n-bagpipes, distinctly Australian – old AC/DC, Weddings, Presents, Anything – that will smack you hard about the head and then stomp on your fingers when you try and pick up your teeth from the ground. The best way to hear the Go Set is LOUD and LIVE and since most of us are not in Ozz, this is the next best thing to experiencing ’em in the flesh. Mores the pity.
