With the 'classic lineup'
that picture of Bob Pollard is tremendous. Great news, too.
but woooow he looks old for his age
If I read classic lineup with inverted commas around it again, I'm going to cry hot tears of pain.
Please play in the UK/Primavera....PLEASE
but no one wants to get shot down for saying so.
The thing with the old lineup is that they weren't (and still aren't - perhaps now even less so) particularly good at playing stuff, and that was perfect for the way they recorded stuff. I wonder how this has been / is gonna be recorded? Hope its relatively lo-fi and low key rather than particularly polished.
Half Smiles Of The Decomposed was a great way to end things for Guided By Voices, just hope this doesn't tarnish what's already there.
I'll keep an open mind though. Perhaps Bob and Tobin have been saving some massive tunes with a reunion in mind.
And if it gets them over to the UK playing some shows then I don't care what it sounds like!
it was "Self produced...recorded in 3 different locations; Toby's house, Greg's house and Mitch's house." and includes five Tobin Srout songs, according to Rich T. Can't wait...
Hope it's not shit. Come on Captain Bob.
If they got back Jimmy Mac it could be alright. Wouldn't hurt if they brought in Doug Gillard for some leads of this calibre too... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7wyJXZJDTm4 Anyway, nice that they're not going the Pixies' touring-forever-without-new-material route
21 tracks ... 6 or 7 you'd play more than once. Can't wait.
