also now a bit more subjective, he has a normal dude voice...it doesn't add or take away anything, the talent is in the songwriting

I'm not like intrigued by him

again typically appreciated in indie late 80's onward

That’s why I took the time to write up my thoughts like that. Nobody is going to keep the entire discography on rotation but it’s a journey I recommend taking at least once.

Absolutely, it was a good write up. One of those bands I wish I could hear for the first time again.

I can’t. I mean I won’t spend that much time away from other music.

The Fall are so much harder to wrap your head around.

I think that touches on something you can take or leave. He’s not Mark E Smith.

But you’re doing yourself a disservice comparing GBV to the Fall and I ****ing know that’s exactly what you did. You thought well Mark E Smith made a million records and reinvented himself a million times and still stayed true to who he is and yes man you’re right but you don’t have to be God to be a god.

Pollard is ****ing supernatural. When you see a ghost you don’t say I know this other ghost blah blah. You say **** this ghost mother****er has a one in a billion power to transcend reality because that mother****er can haunt you.

Once they’re in the web of unassailability they can’t be surpassed even by a greater power. The laws of nature no longer apply.

it's not even just Mark E Smith, there's Edward Ka-Spel and Nurse with Wound just off the top of my head in terms of being incredibly prolific

I mean ultimately there's no rules and there's totally a space for something like GBV where they churn out cloudy melodic gems eternally

I think the approach I tend to prefer is more like "let's throw everything at the wall and see what sticks"
