Know next to nothing..best place to start?
If you enjoy those then listen to the others at your leisure.
Now 'This' my post.
called Human Amusements at Hourly Rates which will give you a good taster for about a fiver.
The best studio album is Bee Thousand.
oh i'm so controversial!
Propeller >>>>>>>> Alien Lanes
It does make you feel like you want to buy all of the albums though.
as it was the first one to come up on Spotify, very good stuff, really enjoyed the following :
Smothered In Hugs
Queen Of Cans And Jars
Thanks for the suggestions will listen to some more later.
all those albums are have at least 5 amazing songs, what have you been listening to? My Kind Of Soldier is as good as anything on UTBUTS, Fairing Touching might just be the best late-period GBV song, Brides Have Hit Glass has some of Pollard's best lyrics, the shimmery-shiny production on DTC suits Wormhole and Wrecking now perfectly and Half Smiles is easily one of their better albums.
Shame on you
They all have something to offer. Pretty much anything that guy puts out has something to offer. I was talking to someone earlier about them, and I think the thing with him is that he has this unfathomable ear for melody. For such a large output, the consistency is pretty insane.
I'd say start with Human Amusements, and then just go based on that. You'll come to it all sooner or later.
They're good. I'm a bit of a fan now.
I don't think anybody has heard everything they ever did ;)
I now have over 14 albums by GBV and related side-projects. So, y'know, be careful
