New GBV: Space Gun

Alien Lanes is my No. 1, but there’s really just a hair between it and Bee Thousand.


#22

Half Smiles needs to be waaay higher - the best of their polished albums by a good distance. Raincloud is the underrated GBV jam.


#23

total agreement, Half Smiles is one of my favourites! One of the essential GBV recs IMO


#24

…thinking about it. It was probably the first GBV album I ever heard, around the time I was in second year at uni.


#25

For those of you who wish GBV were a bit more NIN-y


#26

er what?

i thought they were finally slowing down when they announced Space Gun as their only album of 2018 but…have they already recorded 2 follow ups but just decided to start releasing only one a year again?

i wonder how many years ahead of themselves they’ll end up


#27

I think we should update the saying - after the nuclear apocalypse the only things remaining will be cockroaches, Keith Richards and a never ending stream of new GBV albums.

Bob you madman!

I can’t imagine ‘Street Party’ coming out in 2020, atleast in the form it is now. I can’t see Bob still wanting to release something he recorded two years previous. You read about older albums , that went through 5 versions , where Bob got bored of the songs waiting for the record company to release them, so he just recorded new ones. UTBUTS is the perfect example of this.

Think I used some variation of that when I reviewed Cool Planet (then they made me look silly for a while by breaking up again soon after)
