The Go Go Cult, those mysterious masked voodoo rockin' shamans from errr...Reading...have just released a superb six track mini-album on hot pink 10" Vinyl entitled "Head Hunter" via the Western Star Recording Company. This will be the band's third release on the label and you can order it from here. The sleeve has a great 3D cover and the first 100 copies will include a free pair of 3D glasses, so get in there quick to avoid giving yourself a headache. The hypnotic driving rhythms and tales of Gods, Volcanoes and Head Hunters will transport you Zelig-style to a wealth of old 50's sleazy B-Movies of exotic jungles full of cannibals, creepy crawlies and damsels in distress. The Go Go Cult take all those raw and swampy Blues sounds of The Cramps, The Gun Club and Link Wray and mix them all up with a dose of The Meteors, The Tall Boys and that mid-1980's Psychobilly and Garage Rock scene then distill them into a thoroughly volatile concoction entirely of their own recipe.
