Rip Rig & Panic
"Go, Go, Go! (This Is It)"

Rip Rig & Panic
Go, Go, Go! (This Is It)
7" single
(Virgin Records, 1981)

Today's song is the debut single by Rip Rig & Panic, who became Rip Rig + Panic by the time of their next single, "Bob Hope Takes Risks," hence the née tag. RRP featured Gareth Sager and Bruce Smith, both formerly of The Pop Group, and vocalist Neneh Cherry, daughter of free jazz trumpeter Don Cherry I've got only the first two of their albums, God and I Am Cold, plus some singles, and they're all killer. Skronky jazz horns, funky bass, sheet metal guitar, etc. I only don't have their third album, Attitude, because I have yet to see a copy for sale.

Rip Rig + Panic took their name from the album Rip, Rig & Panic by jazz reed player Rahsaan Roland Kirk, who was fond of playing three horns at the same time. Crazy, man, crazy!
