"We work with them to raise awareness across the media and the music industry in general, locally and globally. We assist in their creative and business development. With GoGaga we have an international network of publishing representation and digital distribution, as well as hundreds of key contacts garnered thru my 40 years of internationalising Australasian music"
"We assist with a customised strategy around finding partners (where required) in synchronisation, mgmt, live representation, govt assistance, label services, PR, and business advice in general"

"This is a 21st century version of everything I have been involved with over the years. Internationalising Australian music thru proper practical flexible representation around copyrights. This time, 40 years after 1977, its total DIY time, the creators are in control of the process and the ownership, and we facilitate that.
GO! launch their operation representing Cash Savage, Peep Tempel and their mainman Blake Scott, singer songwriter Liam Linley, and shape-shifting post-colonialist Delsinki. They also represent Tumbleweed, Rebecca's Empire and the talented, sadly missed Ben Mullins as well as Roger's own punk band The Thought Criminals, of course.
"The definition of independent means you can pick and choose who you work with. DIY means creating your own opportunities. That's GO ! and GoGaga, that's what we do"
