Riassunto: The 1960s, the Golden Age of Garage Bands and the greatest undiscovered rock 'n roll band of them all. One American group's attempt to make it into the Rock 'n Roll Big Time - against all odds - and amidst all things British. For those lucky enough to have caught a glimpse of their shooting star, the Mojo Hands were as frightening as they were entertaining.
We Gotta Go Now is a backstage look at a talented, over the top, self-destructive rock 'n roll band, crashing forward without direction and nearly pulling off the big one. Set against a backdrop of small-town America, the Mu$ic Industry, and the 'turbulent' sixties, We Gotta Go Now chronicles (1964-1967)the performance life and times of The Mojo Hands - a group of Southern New England rockers who drew inspiration from the Blues, early British Invasion, Stax/Volt Soul, and pre-Elvis Rock 'n Roll, creating something completely new, completely theirs. With primitive equipment set on ten, personality for days, and the flight plan of the bumblebee, these Blues Punks became a regional sensation. From the family garage, they rose through the ranks of the club scene and on to the concert hall stage, sharing the bill with, and ultimately blowing away many of the top acts of the day. Edgy performances both on and off stage led Those In The Know to label the band - "A promoter's wet dream and worst nightmare all rolled-up into one tidy package." The Mojo Hands wanted to be America's answer to the Rolling Stones - Instead they were found guilty of Attempted Assault on the Music Industry.
Running on parallel tracks is the story of their rabid, dedicated fans that became nearly as self-destructive as the band. We Gotta Go Now is a vehicle for examining the times - A look at the national events and trends that surrounded the Golden Age of Garage Rock 'n Roll. It is an overview of the mid-sixties Music Business that unwittingly gave birth to a new brand of American Rock 'n Roll.
Dall'autore: I first came upon the Mojo Hands in late 1965 at a local teen dance called The Warren Canteen. Like many other young people of that time and place, I was instantly hooked, following the band nearly religiously until their break-up in 1967. It was the music of the Mojo Hands that inspired me to look deeper into the Blues, beginning a lifelong love affair with all types of American roots music and performing arts.
