13 & 33
T.G.O. Nation hails from south Texas bringing a Euro-style electronic trance / techno / industrial / IDM sound to the masses in an A.D.D. apparent mix of industrial electronica. Why this name? The name T.G.O. Nation came about after 'The GolgothA OssuarY' which is comprised of two unusual words which mean 'skull or a place of torment and torture' (golgotha) and 'a charnel house or any place of storage for the bones of the dead' (ossuary). Band History: The name of the band was originally conceived in the late 1990s when GolgothA (a.k.a. David Vavich) first tried his hand at software based music production which resulted in the song 'AssemblY MasteR' which was a light trance/dance tune that received intermittent regional club play. Real life and necessary career decisions resulted in the abandonment of further musical excursions for several years. 2006: - The release of the debut album '13 and 33' - Live performances from GolgothA on stage with: -- SiNDADDY running live programs 2007: - Live performances from GolgothA on stage with: -- SiNDADDY and the NiNE-ELEVENS running live programs and backing vox -- Lights Over Roswell on keyboards and backing vox -- Soul Urge on keyboards and backing vox - Added Phoebus on Drums & Percussion to the band lineup (visit our MySpace for bio) 2008: - Look forward to the second album release and more performances with SiNDADDY, Lights Over Roswell and others as yet unnamed ;) Your influences?
