Manchester power trio The G-O-D have given essentiallypop a sneak preview of four tracks ahead of the release of their self-titled debut album.
The band, fronted by Dub Sex guitarist Chris Bridgett, showcased the tracks ahead of their upcoming headline show at Salford’s Eagle Inn on 14 October.
Something of a Manchester supergroup, the modestly-monikered trio, also feature ex-Fall and Ian Brown band drummer Simon Wolstencroft.
Bridgett promised raw punk energy when he announced the formation of the band in a highly entertaining interview with us in back in February and on the evidence of these four-tracks he’s keeping to his word.
Impulsive is a down and dirty romp in the style of The New York Dolls, while There Goes My Baby is a swampy groove that recalls Run Run Run by the Velvets.
Even better is the hook-laden Going Over The Top, which sounds like The Pixies on speed.
As for the Iggy Pop referencing We Are Stars, well you can make you own mind up about that one by watching the video below.
