Music is My Life: Episode 049
The Go! Team on Longevity, ‘Cookie Scene,’ and More
Ian Parton and Ninja discuss what it means to stay together as a band for so long. Beginning as an Ian Parton solo recording project in the kitchen of his parents in the late 1990s, Parton expanded the Go! Team into a live experience with wildly different energy in the first decade of the 2000s.
Check out their recent single “Cookie Scene.”
“I’ve always thought the band was kind of Utopian, in a way. It’s the world in a way that I wish it was,” says Parton. “Multiculturalism and socialism and technicolor and cool hobbies and cool films: All the best things in the world all rolled together.”
