The Go Team - 7" Singles (1989)
K Records founder Calvin Johnson & Bikini Kill's Tobi Vail, collaborating with an ever-changing hodgepodge of musicians, made up the 1980's band The Go Team. For a band featuring two well known independant artists, there isn't all that much out there about The Go Team. Their releases are crying out for re-issues. I lost a bid on ebay for the Come Archer Sparrow cassette tape--my max bid was $190--in 2008! For a cassette tape!
In 1989 The Go Team started a 7" singles club which ended up being nine records over the course of a year. Each seven inch was silk screened on one side and featured music on the other. I highly recommend checking out this article about it. It's where I stole the photo from--the only Go Team band photo that can be found online. Over the years I have collected 7 of the 9 singles. The two records I do not own are: July, which features Kurt Cobain on guitar (expensive as hell) and September which is an excerpt(?!?) of an instrumental. I also have included a bonus live track "slumberland gods" from the pre-moon syndrome comp LP.
