Here's a hot take for you: GBV in the 1980s made some of the most underrated LPs of the decade.

It's a toss-up between
"Game of Pricks"
and
"Smothered in Hugs"
I am old and cranky.
Here is my music.

I hadn’t either until maybe two years ago. I think the avclub did a little write up on it, badically saying Bob decided to try and do a take on Brian Wilson and cruahed it in his first try.

I read the previous book on GBV and it was not particularly flattering for Uncle Bob. I'm vaguely curious about the new one but the fact it's authorized / written by a friend of Bob makes me wonder if they'll look over some of the more questionable stuff.

It was in reference to the vocal harmonies the beach boys made their hay on. Which are just killer in this song

First GBV song I ever heard. Remember sitting on my brick of a laptop in my freshman dorm scowring the dredgs of mp3.com and stumbling it. Still ranks high for me

saw gbv last sunday. they ruled. they absolutely smoked. They played 50 songs. the crowd was so into it. They played so many fucking hits. Felt so good to sing along loudly to Jane of the Waking Universe. Glad Girls too. They played some pollard solo songs. They played some new songs and they were really good. I decided to get a t-shirt. Some great crowd-watching too. There was a group of old buddies who were having so much fun the whole time and knew literally every word to every song. One of them brought his, like, 15 year old kid and she knew every word to every song too. I mean, these people knew all the words to deep cuts that I didn't even recognize. That's how I knew I was in the presence of some true heads. They also played Your Name Is Wild, which is possibly my favorite GBV song.

buzzards and dreadful crows is definitely choice.

I always vacillate on which i like more, the hi-fi tigerbomb versions of game of pricks and my valuable hunting knife, or the classic lo-fi alien lanes versions. Love both, dont wanna choose

Really good call. I think this is one that got collaged elsewhere, maybe on Bee Thousand?

Sopor Joe and Fantasy Creeps from King Shit got collaged on Back To Saturn X on Propellar. I think that's what you're thinking of?

King Shit is amazing and I'm happy they finally gave it a solo release outside of Box.

at the boston spaceships show I went to in like 2010 they played crutch came slinking and I freaked the fuck out

like when you have 5 billion songs what are the odds of reaching back for something that obscure to play with your new band

my mind felt read

Tommy Keene (RIP) was on lead and the whole band kicked ass and that tinny little song me and 10 other people used to love sounded like fucking top 40

Still surprised Bob never cut a full album of rough acoustic songs. The 4 track is the perfect fidelity for the acoustic guitar.

All this talk of King Shit but no Scissors or Indian Was An Angel??

I love how the Suitcases have all been basically increasingly shallow rewards on the King Shit concept that Bob seeded way way back in what like 1994 with the first Box. Like King Shit & the Golden Boys in form and content is a miniature distillation of all the shit and gold that would eventually be revealed by the Suitcases.
