Mojo GoGo are Donegal natives who formed in Derry in November 2010. In February 2011, they recorded “The Rounce EP”. It was described as “Simple, clean, packed with fantastic, thick melodies and hooks” by Goldenplec with “hair standing choruses”.
Having toured incessantly over the next few months, Mojo GoGo holed themselves up in their native Donegal to write for their next release – “Cheats, Chicks and Powders EP” which they recorded with Frank Kearns of SALT Studios, Dublin in July 2011.
Having been mastered by Richard Dowling (Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney), the 3-track digital download was seen as a risky venture into an edgier, heavier sound for the band. It garnered impressive reviews with critics describing it as ‘contagious’, ‘bloody wonderful; full, rich and demanding.’
Since then, Mojo GoGo have gone on to play some of the country’s most prestigious venues such as The Ulster Hall, Roisin Dubh and Whelan’s with international acts such as Ash, The Enemy,The Minutes and Horslips to name but a few.
Further highlights include featuring on the cover of Hotpress Magazine in September 2011, and appearing on the hit TV series The Apprentice in October 2011. Mojo GoGo’s new single ‘Trigger’ can be downloaded for free at www.mojo-gogo.bandcamp.com
