Between Beat Happening and Dub Narcotic Sound System, indie rock guru Calvin Johnson founded the Go Team, an ambitious group with a revolving membership and endless guest stars. Drummer Tobi Vai and guitarist Billy "Boredom" Karren, who went onto Bikini Kill fame, were the band's most regular members. In 1989, the band released a 45 every month from January through September. That July, a young musician named Kurt Kobain played guest guitar on a song called "Bikini Twilight." After an East Coast tour that fall, the Go Team called it quits after five years. ~ Ron DePasquale, Rovi
