Go-Kart Mozart


Go Kart Mozart is an English indie rock band founded by Lawrence, originally of the bands Felt and Denim. Their name comes from a line in the lyrics of "Blinded by the Light", a song written by Bruce Springsteen.

In 1999, Go Kart Mozart released their debut album, Instant Wigwam and Igloo Mixture. It was issued on the Cherry Red subsidiary label West Midlands Records. Tearing Up the Album Charts followed in 2005, and was again released on West Midlands.

Released specially on Record Store Day in April 2012, "New World in the Morning", a cover of the Roger Whittaker song, was a standalone single and was also featured in the film Lawrence of Belgravia. This was followed by the album, On the Hot Dog Streets, which was released on June 2012. The album contained songs from the unreleased album, 'Denim Take Over', as well as several new compositions.

A recording called Mini-Mart was intended to follow On the Hot Dog Streets, initially as an accompanying EP. At the end of 2013, Cherry Red announced intentions for this to appear as a 2014 album.
