Whatcha Doin'

The Go's debut album Whatcha Doin' introduces the Detroit group's aggressive, authentic update of late-'60s garage rock. Songs like the snarling "Meet Me at the Movies" and the blissed-out "Summer Sun Blues" display the group's fuzzy, driving guitars, half-shouted, half-sung vocals, and swaggering beats, while the poppier "It Might Be Good" and the "Get Off of

Overview

The Go's debut album Whatcha Doin' introduces the Detroit group's aggressive, authentic update of late-'60s garage rock. Songs like the snarling "Meet Me at the Movies" and the blissed-out "Summer Sun Blues" display the group's fuzzy, driving guitars, half-shouted, half-sung vocals, and swaggering beats, while the poppier "It Might Be Good" and the "Get Off of My Cloud"-esque "You Can Get High" add another dimension to the Go's straight-up rock sound. Whatcha Doin's final song "Time for Moon" is one of the album's best, combining a primal beat with dashes of backwards guitar and raw vocals. Though the occasionally muddy sound of the album takes the Go's quest for '60s-style authenticity a bit too far and fails to capture the group's live energy, Whatcha Doin' is a good introduction to one of the Motor City's most explosive bands.
