Off the back of the recent GBV / Bee Thousand threads, has anyone here had the patience to sift through much of Bob’s solo stuff?
I expected decent things from the first two (Not in My Airforce and Waved Out) when they appeared on Spotify not too long ago but found them both very patchy (was particularly disappointed in the latter given how much of a banger Subspace Biographies is).
Got largely the same impression when dipping into some of the 2012-onwards albums over the last few years, but have just recently discovered that Blazing Gentlemen (2013) and Jack Sells the Cow (2012) are actually both really solid.
i know very little in between 1998 and 2012 (i did check out Robert Pollard Goes to Business from 2008 at one point after i read he almost released it as a new GBV record - strange as I didn’t think it sounded much like GBV compared to some of the others). Anything else worth investigating?
I’m told Speak Kindly of Your Volunteer Fire Department with Doug Gillard is a must, haven’t got round to that one yet.
