Guided By Voices - "The Unsinkable Fats Domino"

Let’s recap: Last October, Robert Pollard reconvened Guided By Voices’ “classic” lineup for Matador’s rather epic 21st birthday gala in Vegas. The ensuing year has seen a premium placed on Cuervo and fistpumps, with GBV offering their rousing, rambling indie rock pith in 120-second bursts on tour ever since. Then came the announcement of Let’s Go Eat The Factory, the classic lineup’s first LP since 1996′s Under The Bushes, Under The Stars, due New Year’s Day. Today you can hear its first single, “The Unsinkable Fats Domino.” It’s wrapped under two minutes, which is one of GBV’s greatest looks. And if you like it, you can have it:

“The Unsinkable Fats Domino” will be released as a 7″ on 11/22 via Matador. According to Matablog, the b-side is titled “We Won’t Apologize.”  Let’s Go Eat The Factory is out 1/1/12 via GBV Inc. in North America and on Fire Records for the rest of the globe. Salute.

        You’re wrong. Dog shit doesn’t make a sound except when it is getting squeezed out of a dog’s butthole.

        It doesn’t matter if it is dried or fresh or whether you pick it up and shake it near your ear or rub it on your chest.

          It can cause other people to make loud whiny sounds though if you put it in a brown paper bag, place the bag on someone’s doorstep, light the bag on fire and ring the doorbell.

  2. It’s like they never left.

  3. This sounds like they had an actual producer and studio and stuff. If I didn’t know this was GBV, I’d probably think “Man, that sounds a lot like GBV, but it’s way too professional to be GBV”.

    Pretty damn good, though.

  4. Every time I forget about Guided by Voices, there’s some kind of news that reminds me they exist in some form.
