The Go Find - Everybody Knows It's Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight
“Here come the Belgians!” yelled Stuart Hall on TV’s It’s A Knockout. This would almost certainly be followed by someone trying to carry a bucket of water up a 45 degree incline while dressed as a giant waiter (ask your parents if you think I’m making this up). Fortunately the only assault course that this bunch of Belgians (with their mouthful of an album title) are traversing is one of musical history.
Everybody Knows It’s Gonna Happen Only Not Tonight is an atypical album from the Morr Music stable, exhibiting their trademark gentle but lush songwriting and musical delivery. The Go Find have their own style, but also aren’t afraid to declare their undying love for their musical mentors. Pavement’s later pop-heavy period is the key ingredient in their sumptuous ‘Cherry Pie. Elsewhere front man Dieter Sermeus teams up for beautiful duets – his voice intertwines with Karo on ‘One Hundred Percent’ to mesmeric effect.
This is a record thoroughly devoid of any gimmicks, relying on song alone. Whilst it might not be pushing the musical envelope it does seal a perfumed love letter to their heroes within.
