Guided By Voices - Static Airplane Jive

Another GBV EP. Another from the golden era. This one has the brilliant short jam "Hey Aardvark," and the slow burn of "Damn Good Mr. Jam." The latter's finale of "everything for free" might be recognizable from the clip in "Back to Saturn X Radio Report" off of "Propellor."

A good, short EP. It doesn't hold together as well as "Fast Japanese Spin Cycle," but it still has a bunch of solid tracks. Totally worth getting.

Thanks for posting all this GBV stuff -- I'm trying to fill out my collection of their non-LP stuff in preparation for my retardedly expensive scalped ticket to the reunion tour. Do you have Clown Prince of the Menthol Trailer?

Yeah, I got that boy but it's never been one of my favorites. I'll keep posting some goodies. I just found a rare collection of outtakes that I'll post in the next couple days.
