GbV will be performing in your living room next Friday!

https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/guided-by-voices-tease-second-album-of-2020-announce-livestreamed-ohio-show-1024512/



The Hot Freaks subscription I posted before has been amazing! Every Tuesday they have been dropping great content...demos, live stuff, fun day-in-the-life style videos of Bob. Best money I've ever spent!

Man.... Tuesday has been my favorite day of the week lately. Todays news with the live stream, mirrored preorder, and hot freaks email was punctuated by an email from Midheaven that my copy of Vampire on Titus is about to ship.


Me too. Something to look forward to.

I love Mirrored Aztec! I think the songs are going to translate really well live. I can't wait to hear Transfusion done live.

Tuesdays are nice to look forward to. Just wish we could receive an album of the week every week, those videos kill me. Mirrored Aztec is so good thus far! Gonna get some Miller Lights going next Friday in my home

No. I have not. It was a closed set with only a handful of Dayton locals/friends in attendance. And no one is talking about the setlist.

I heard that quality is incredible! It was shot with seven cameras.

*oh yeah, it comes with an audio download of the show.

Ha!

I loved it! The band sounded great! The harmonies throughout were fantastic! Doug's solo on Moses On A Snail was incredible.

I was fortunate to get to hear a forthcoming GbV album the other night. It's called Earth Man Blues. It is different from every other album they've released. Very psychedelic and proggy.

How different?  I'm starting to think Bob is hitting the prog a little too hard.

If you like The Year of the Hard Hitter...you'll probably like this one.

Forget what I said...I've heard it a few more times...this album is the best the current line-up has done!

Dont think i will buy another GBV album, unless i find a cheap copy of Same place the fly got smashed.
Ive been a fan sonce mid-90s, and have almost everything.
I hardly ever listen to anything after UBUT anyway.

Many of my old GBV friends are all nostalgic about the "original" line-up. Fuck that! The current line-up is the best!


Heedfest is still tentatively happening Labour Day weekend in Dayton. Fingers-crossed!

I had tickets for Heedfest last year. Ended up eating the cost of my flight and hotel and had to dispute the charges of the ticket with my card company because the ticketing agency took the money and ran. I know it's not the band's fault, but I'm just not willing to buy advanced tickets to anything anymore, especially when airfare and lodging is involved. Gonna have to wait for them to come to me  :(

I still haven't received a refund for Heedfest tickets. My bank said that it is still under investigation.

Are you guys aware of the Cub Scout Bowling Pin-Heaven Beats Iowa release?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WzkqEO1SZRg


I heard the Cub Scout Bowling Pin full length album a couple of weeks ago(I think it's coming out in June). It is fantastic! There's a Cash Rivers vibe at the start, then gets pretty psychedelic. There's a song near the end that sounds straight off of Tommy.

Another album dropped the other day...Earth Man Blues. It is my favourite from the current line-up...and it has been getting great reviews...which has translated in to a big sell-through. If you plan on buying this album on vinyl act fast! Apparently, Revolver(music distributor) only has 100 copies left. Rockathon said that they wouldn't be able to restock until March 2022 b/c the industry is that backed up.

Loving EMB. How Can a Plumb be Perfected is amazing.  I think I would have been floored hearing it all for the first time rather than hearing Free Agents, Batman, and Trust Them beforehand.  Looking forward to Cub Scouts full length but gonna pass on the merch. A little too rockabilly looking to me.

Oh for sure! I almost always question the songs they choose to promote new albums.

I've heard Clang Clang Ho a few times...it is really good! I passed on the merch too.
