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.
