Chocolate Boy 7'' (2012)

Chocolate Boy 7''
(2012, Guided by Voices Inc.)

The 3rd single released off Let's Go Eat The Factory, this two song 7'' contains an unreleased b-side from Tobin Sprout, and it is stellar!  Released on chocolate color vinyl.

Chocolate Boy was reviewed under the LP Let's Go Eat the Factory. 

As the Girls Sing Downing-  The fact that this Tobin Sprout song did not make it onto an LP is either a cruel joke on Mr. Sprout, a slap in the face to Mr. Sprout., or the coolest thank you gift ever given to fans for picking up this 7''.  Tobin Sprout's B-side is a beautifully celebratory pop-gem, rooted in '60s melody, and '80s drum-machine hooked pop. I picture this playing in some John Hughes movie, making the scene iconic. I don't know? Damn, this is a great song. Under 2 minutes. Yes please.
