Alright Rally Boys and Girls, this thread is going to discuss the output of the current lineup of GBV, also known as the New Classic Lineup. Whatever you want to call it, there is no doubt that what Bob and the boys have been doing since getting together is unprecedented and special. The production thus far: 17 albums since 2016, including two doubles, and a few side projects in there as well. Talk about keeping it in motion. After completing (for now at least) the Robert Pollard solo album by album thread, I kinda missed getting together here and talking Bob. I brought up the idea for this thread to @Pop_Zeus, as we kinda got the solo thread going (Though he did all the heavy lifting). Suffice it to say, we thought it would be fun, especially as this thread will continue and stay current as the albums keep getting pumped out. This time around I'll kick things off. So here's the roll call: @Pop_Zeus @guidedbyvoices @GuidedByJonO))) @Strummergas @kdawg @guerilla1977 @Echoes Myron @jacethecrowl @yamfox @dthomas850 @BlueTrane @DPK @electricmetaphor @Vangro @Summer of Malcontent @spurious @kouzie @bzfgt @bRETT @Neil Anderson @marc with a c @JTemperance @Alf Panek I tried to find contributors to the solo thread and a few others. If I missed you, apologies but please do join in. Any other GBV fans, I hope you find your way to these electronic windows to nowhere, and share your thoughts on the extraordinary and unparalleled output of this band. I can't wait to see what particular favorites you all have. My plan is to post a new album/what have you on Sunday nights, as this is my easiest time to put some info out there. Now, I was not the most timely of contributors to the solo thread, but I'll do my best here. Some questions for you all: Would you rather one week between releases or two? Maybe one week isn't quite enough time to get your thoughts out there. I know for me personally it took a good 3-5 listens to fully "get" an album enough for me to talk about it at the level I wanted to. How do we feel about the non-GBV stuff that has come out in this time period? Should it all be covered? Even Cash Rivers? In discussions with @Pop_Zeus , we both felt ESP Ohio should be included, as it seems like it's an early and integral part of this current formation. To kick things off, I will post the details for Please Be Honest next Sunday night. In the meanwhile, hope to see you here, tell your friends, and let's get some preliminary jibber jabber going. To quote a press release "the world needs The Rock", so here we go, nowhere but up!
