It’s been around 15 years since the original lineup of Guided By Voices released their previous album, 1996’s Under the Bushes, Under the Stars. But the guys have gotten back together to record a new record, Let’s Go Eat the Factory, that’s due out in just more than a month. And to commemorate the album’s release, the folks at the Quietus have put together a lengthy piece on GBV’s history.
And toward the end there’s a special treat by way of a live recording of one of the band’s classic tunes, “Over the Neptune/Mesh Gear Fox.” It stems from an unreleased Stormtroopers In London bootleg from 1996, which means the sound is a lil’ shoddy. But just turn up the volume and you should be good to go. Never mind the weird looks from your co-workers. Stream the recording below.
