Product Description

ROLLINS BAND GET SOME - GO AGAIN

Amazon.com

With Get Some Go Again, everyone's favorite renaissance rocker redefines raw power and blinding intensity with tattooed muscle to spare. This album finds a tangibly rejuvenated Henry with a new Rollins Band lineup in tow, and Jim Wilson (guitar), Marcus Blake (bass), and Jason Mackenroth (drums) have inspired their firebrand vocalist to deliver his most feral work since Black Flag's glory days. From the explosive opening fusillade of "Illumination" to the Wayne Kramer-assisted, freeform fury of "L.A. Money Train," Get Some Go Again exudes purest energy. With Henry taking care of production there's no room for compromise--it's simply supercharged and brutally focused sonic aggression. Check out the blistering riff maelstrom of "Thinking Cap" or the overdriven romp through Thin Lizzy's "Are You Ready" (featuring the characteristic fret-board wizardry of the legendary ex-Lizzy guitar maestro Scott Gorham). Ultimately, this is an astonishing return to form, and the most essential Rollins recording to date. --Ian Fortnam

I was beginning to get worried about Rollins. His spoken word stuff has lost a lot of its bite, and his guest appearances on VH1's The List did not bode well for my favorite rock musician of all time. Nevermind all that, though- from the sound of this disc, you'd think he never left Black Flag. The music on Get Some Go Again is full of verve and life. The new band is indeed a good fit to Hank's style, and the music is much tighter than either Weight or Come In and Burn. This music isn't as penetrating as The End of Silence (Rollins Band's best work to date), but any fan of quality rock music will not be disappointed. Rollins is still obsesed with personal issues- getting old, losing focus, beating the odds- and his lyrics still hit their mark. Thank you, Rollins, for not selling out. Thank you for continuing to bare your soul for us. Your music remains a source of strength and inspiration for everyone who is concerned with self-betterment.

I bought this CD the same day I bought the new Smashing Pumpkins. Two different types of music, for sure. But, where I thought I'd be getting something fresh from the Pumpkins, I instead found this to be the surprising refresher...but I digress.
The Rollins Band for this recording is Mother Superior. A heavy metal unison equivalence to Neil Young with Crazy Horse or Dylan with The Band? Whatever the case, I didn't know who Mother Superior was, but they rock and this CD rocks. Not that other Rollins Band recording didn't (they all ROCK), but his one has more boogie-woogie '70's style flare and funkiness mixed in there.
Check out Track #5 (Thinking Cap) "....You can put pearls on a swine, but it's still a pig....snort snort". Henry puttin' it on the wimps with plastic surgery. And "Money Train" a hidden 14-minute tirade of wine made out of sour grapes and cooked with steam, with MC5's guitarist Wayne Kramer. Pure funk, with a spoken dialogue over the top. Hank vs. LA.
Unfortunately, Henry's vocals will still push the wimps away scared and shaking, but I think that's the way he wants it.

Devout Rollins Band fans will flame me for this, no doubt, but I've never been able to get into the pseudo-jazz/metal/punk groove that was the Rollins Band. I had my favorite songs, sure, like "Low Self Opinion", "Obscene", "Shine" and "Volume 4", but I was never able to sit still and listen to a Rollins Band album all the way through and say "This is awesome!" My reaction was something along the lines of: "Do I like this? I don't _know_ if I like this."
No more. Get Some > Go Again is the answer to my Rollins Band prayers. Hank told us on his website that he had to get his ya-yas out elsewhere, and LA blues-rockers Mother Superior fit the bill perfectly. From the opening feedback and bass off "Illumination", you know this album is different. The leadoff track explodes in your ears, with it's insistent, burning guitars and Hank's powerful lyrics and vocals. "GS>GA" is next, and the title track just cranks the intensity up a few more notches.
My other favorite tracks are "Love's So Heavy", "Change It Up", "I Go Day Glo" and "Hotter and Hotter", but you'd have to search deep to find a bad song on here. The band does slow and bluesy just as skillfully as it does hyper and rockin', and all the while Hank the Tank's vocals are pounding your brain and getting stuck in your head. It has been said that Hank is a great lyricist and an average vocalist, but I think the style of play on this record suits his voice almost as well as (dare I say it?) Black Flag used to.
The band are rockers in the Black Sabbath / MC5 school of monster guitar rock, and their power and skill really makes this album click. It's no wonder producing their record nudged Hank into thinking he might like to record music again... and we as fans are damn lucky he did. Bravo, Hank. This one rocks. I like it a whole lot.

Henry Rollins returns with 'Get Some Go Again' that features an all new band backing him, with Jim Wilson - guitar, Marcus Blake - bass and Jason Mackenroth - drums. Basically, just good underground alternative punk. A couple of guests on this CD are Thin Lizzy's guitarist Scott Gorham and former MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer. Tunes I liked best were "Love's So Heavy", "I Go Day Glo", "Let Yourself Down" and Thin Lizzy's "Are You Ready" (featuring Gorham). Very decent piece of work here, I thought. Just might appeal to fans of Primus, Melvins, Gone, Bad Brains and Faith No More.

It's all been said already.
The Phoenix rises from the ashes, a new beginning etc.
And it's all true.
When this album came out, some friends and I went to see the tour in Sydney. At the end of the show we were so blown away we agreed to see the band next time it toured. While touring Australia, the band announced 3 days later that they would do a second show in Sydney at the end of the tour before heading back overseas. Needless to say, we all went to the second show and it was just as good, if not better. Now, I wont repeat what's already been said here about Get Some Go Again, but there is something I wanted to mention that hasn't been covered here properly yet.
The last track, LA Money Train, is an absolute gem. A loose, funky, jazz-style jam by the band and guest guitarist Wayne Kramer with Henry half-talking, half-singing along. The story of the 'LA Money train' and what the denizens of LA will do to get on in order to achieve "fame and financial excess" is vintage Rollins at his scathing best. The track is about 15 minutes long and features some great work by all involved.
If the rest of the record was mediocre I would say that this track alone validates the purchase of this album, however there are simply no dud tracks on the entire CD and as such it's a sharp piece of work and a definite winner.
