White Flag 7'' (2012)

White Flag 7''
(2012, Guided by Voices Inc.)

The first of three 7'' singles released for GBV's 3rd reunion LP, The Bears For Lunch.  Limited to 1000.  Contains 2 exclusive b-sides. 

White Flag- Same track as on The Bears For LunchRead review there.

Casino Model- 3  Later era (2002ish?) GBV, jilted sounding tune. Nothing overly impressive on this Pollard tune. This song is more spirit over substance. Short and muddled, but worth the 1 minute to check out and say ehhhhh.... No harm, no foul. 

Zebra Film Negative- Well if this ain't a GBV song title, I just don't know what is. Similar in its short jilted  proggy pop structure to that of "Casino Model", but served in half the time. So in short, this is a two second version of "Casino Model" but also a completely different song. And again still worth the 30 seconds to check out and say ehhhhhh....


  1. don't know what to make of these songs. kind of nice to listen to first thing in the morning when I'm hungover and don't know what to make of anything.

  2. I believe these were Bob songs from The Mouseman Cloud sessions. Certainly sound like it.
