GoGoGo to Work

"Yes, it is true, we have broken up," says GoGoGo Airheart drummer Andy Robillard on the band's MySpace blog. "At least I can say without any reservations whatsoever that we never put out a shitty record, and we never sold out to The Man." The group has been around, with various members, since 1996.

"[Money was] the biggest problem with being in this band," bassist Ashish Vyas told Pitchforkmedia.com. "Everyone who had a job quit before the U.S. tour in February. We didn't come home with any money, and that reality, which we were aware of at the start of the European tour, fueled our decision to stop this band."

GoGoGo's last gig was at the Casbah on May 22. Mike Vermillion has moved to Long Beach to play guitar with area bands, while guitarist Ben White has relocated to L.A. to DJ at the Echo on Sunset Boulevard. Robillard still plays drums here, and Vyas will spend the summer touring with the Thievery Corporation, which appears at 4th & B on July 21. There are no plans to issue unreleased tracks recorded in 2003 with John Reis.
