Oh Boy

Catalogue No.



Oh Boy by Transcargo was the first ever attempt at issuing really modern music by a band. Went quite well as the track "Oh Boy" was used in a Renault commercial launched in Italy, which meant I got some of the money back that I’d spent on releasing the record in the first place. Still a great track. Issued 2003


Well there I as, minding my own business when the dog rang. It was Transcargo. They are a band. One girlie (Emily) who sings and writes, one guy (Anthony) who sings and writes and produces, and loads of other blokes who do loads as well. They have the old Hit Factory (think Rick Astley) studios in South London. They also have lots of old instruments and some interesting new ideas. They sent me a CDR of music they had made. I listened to it and thought that it sounded "fresh" and very radio friendly. Two months later we have release a mini LP - a six track 12". I think it is quirky and quite poppy, which seems to go against just about everything that trunk stands for, but basically I couldn't help myself.

The Mini Album - Oh Boy by Transcargo - is available via ye olde shoppe, and is limited to just 500 copies. Please buy one, otherwise they will never have enogh money to pay me back the £20 they owe me for a library record I sold them.

Oh, they also played live at Cargo in London and were bloody good. Really bloody good. They are prolific songwriters too and have the kind of get up and go that will see them into most peoples record collections over the next few years. Well thats what I think. Oh, they also wrote lots of music for shot TV ads, but they do it very well. Next time you go into Sainsburys and see one of those TVs advertising an ironing board cover and a battery operated milk whisk, the music is by Transcargo.
