The Go Set

“…trying to describe the sound of The Go Set is like trying to imagine Peter Garrett, The Pogues, and The Clash having a late night jam in a local pub with an endless supply of booze”. Blunt Magazine (2005)

Amusing, but probably not far wrong. The Pogues and The Clash, along with the likes of early Midnight Oil, Billy Bragg, and Radio Birdman are indeed strong influences on the band’s music. Combining the folk elements of the bagpipes, accordion, and mandolin, with distorted punk guitars and a rock n roll ethos, The Go Set have created a sound and direction all its own…

Since 2004, The Go Set have released six independent albums, and appeared on countless compilations and splits worldwide. A fiercely independent band in their earlier years, The Go Set have recently signed with ABC/Universal in Australia, and with Berlin punk label Coretex in Europe for their most recent releases.

They have travelled the world for more than a decade, with extensive touring through Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, and more recently in the USA. They’ve played festivals and club shows, and toured with everyone from Wolfmother and the Living End, to the White Stripes. More than a thousand live shows, and these days a passionate underground legion of fans worldwide.

A number of singles have achieved radio charting success in both Australia and Europe, and the band has been nominated for an Australian Independent Music Award.

After being locked away in seaside studio on the Victorian coast, the band had produced a brand new album “Rolling Sound”, as well as commencing the editing process for all of the video footage. As the album was mixed and mastered, so to was the footage compiled and developed. After more than a month, the band had not only produced it’s own album, but also it’s own film titled ‘These are the Days’.
