it's made me wonder if GBV sound like that because they're from Ohio or if they sound like they're from Ohio because of records like this.
anyway it's a really great Columbus power-pop album and if you like Guided By Voices you'll probably like it. Connections have members of Times New Viking, 84 Nash and El Jesus De Magico
Also there's the Counter-Intuits record which is one of the Times New Viking guys and Ron House from the Thomas Jefferson Slave Apartments/Great Plains/Ron House and that's cool too. Now there's more cool Times New Viking side projects than cool Times New Viking records if you count that Hole Class tape from a few years ago.
Here's some links if you can't read:
