Goo formed from the ashes of Bangkok based band Futon.
Goo played their debut show in 2009 in Hanoi, Vietnam and performed live for the first time in Thailand at the FAT FESTIVAL in November 2009. The band recorded songs with Slot Machine producer Scott Moffat. The recordings appeared on a limited edition CD, called ‘Sponsored by Nobody’ that was initially away free to Thai fans. The band’s intention to keep the songs pure and free from any corporate interference meant they had to maintain complete control and not sell out to ‘the man’. Inspired by the Sex Pistols classic ‘Spunk’ bootleg album (a collection of early demos that was released on vinyl) Goo decided to release the raw recordings to ensure the songs kept their soul and weren’t sanitized by over cautious record companies or obtrusive sponsors. The anthemic songs are uncompromising and intact without apology.
