THE GO! TEAM – Grip Like A Vice (7″ Single)

Memphis Industries MI092S2: 2nd July 2007
Grip Like A Vice (Original / Black Affair Remix)
“The blast from the past, superb in every word, super female rockin’, just the best you’ve heard, I make the brothers sweat, cos I keep their bodies hot, it’s a woman’s world, you gotta give it what ya got”

I often find putting on a Go! Team song is like listening to a badly recorded demo (Of an admittedly incredible track) while MySpace is on in the background.  ‘Grip Like A Vice’ has a bit of that, but a choice sample of ‘Psycha-Soula-Funkadelic’ by The Politicians and a super-catchy Synth line means there’s absolutely nothing that could stop this track from moving your body and delighting your ears.  I was humming the tune under my breath all day and the vocal even goes “Dun ah dun dun” at points in the song.  The big bad abrasive Drums are the icing on the cake, bringing to mind Keith Moon at his most brutal.  The ‘Black Affair Remix’ grafts on some funky Slap-Bass but loses the elements I mentioned that make the track so special.

Here’s the song that’s sampled on ‘Grip Like A Vice’ plus Simian Mobile Disco show you how a Remix of The Go! Team should go down:
