Artist: R-Go
LP: R-Go
Song: "Bombázó (Bomber)"
[ listen ]

If you threw Haircut 100, Scritti Politti, and General Public into a cement mixer with Sheila E. and then poured the resulting stew into an old building in Budapest and had it make a record, you might end up with something like this terrific self-titled 1983 debut from R-Go. Photos and notes from the back of the LP are included below, along with part of an article on the Hungarian rock scene from the June 1986 issue of Spin Magazine. I don't know what R-Go is up to nowadays, but I did stumble upon some unfortunate news concerning one of the lovely young ladies who used to be in the group.
