Ready Get Go
Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 solo album from the singer/songwriter behind the legendary Shaggs. Dot Wiggin is back to break the silence and share her uncommonly cute, uncanny music on her first-ever solo album - a mix of never-recorded Shaggs songs and new classics written by Wiggin and her band! Ready! Get! Go! Retains the Shaggs' essential qualities without missing a beat or trying to recreate what once was. The material ranges from raw, punkish indie to pretty melodies, all with Wiggin's trademark whimsy. Her lyrics are simple but haunting, without ever becoming formulaic or gimmicky, and her peculiar, sweet voice rolls along the different musical styles with surprising ease, tying Ready! Get Go! Together. It is exactly what one wants to hear after a 44-year musical hiatus - something reminiscent of the Shaggs, but refreshingly matured.
