Go! Go! Go! - The Treniers

Legbamel Not-Pop

It's time for some old-school rhythm and blues, a boogie woogie oldie that's certain not moldy. The Treniers bridged a gap from swing to rock and roll to R&B, 'way back in the 1940s and into the 50s. I'm decided to give you Go! Go! Go! because it's an excellent example of that bridge. They also performed some much-naughtier songs, including Uh Oh (Get out of the Car) about a girl who won't "treat me right" and Poon Tang which purports to be about hugs and kisses but is sung from the point of view of a soldier coming home after a long absence.

In part this is a part of my on-going effort to prove that all of those stories your elders tell you about being so chaste and pure are a load of bunk and in part its to draw a oft-overlooked group that influenced a large number of acts to your attention. If you like Go! Go! Go! have a listen to some of their other songs and do let me know what you think.
