Guided By Voices

Last year, Robert Pollard reunited the mid-’90s “classic” lineup of Guided By Voices and played a whole bunch of beer-drenched marathon shows with them. There was talk that the band’s recent set at North Carolina’s Hopscotch Festival would be their final reunion show, but this reunion ain’t done yet. The lineup of Pollard, Tobin Sprout, Greg Demos, Mitch Mitchell, and Kevin Fennell have recorded a brand new album called Let’s Go Eat The Factory, their first since 1996′s Under The Bushes, Under The Stars, and they’re going to release it on New Years Day. We’ve got that album’s tracklist below.

01 “Laundry And Lasers”

03 “Doughnut For A Snowman”

  1. GBV reunion a couple years after they supposedly split up?
    If it gets me a new album, I’ll take it.

  2. What the hell, only 21 tracks? These guys really are getting old.

  3. I sure hope it sounds like shit. It wouldn’t be “classic” Guided by Voices if it didn’t sound like shit. Notice, BTW, that the word *shit* is not in ironic quotation marks. Okay, Repliers, my neck is thoroughly stuck out. Get on with it.

    • If by shit you mean recorded on an eight track in Pollard’s garage, submerged in a fish tank, while a freight train is driving by right outside, then copied onto a cassette tape and physically kicked along the ground to the publisher’s office.

      Now that’s the GBV I know!

  4. Oh hot damn, this is wacky.

  5. awesome, tell me more. i’m all about “interrac’ial si’ngles”

  6. ^ response to a post that no longer exists. so instead i just sound like I lost my mind. great.

  7. Yeah, sorry — when I delete spam comments any responses to them make no sense. So don’t respond to the spammers!
