Anyway we have a bunch of news about Gob, some good, some bad.
"...NEW GOB RECORD!
that's right kids! we are presently writing a new record that we aim to record sometime in the next few months. not much to say about it now, i don't want to go letting the cat out of the bag or anything.
again, most of you are already aware of this. due to artistic differences, craig wood is no longer part of gob, he will now strum his guitar for avril lavigne.
sad, but true.
we will go ahead and make our record as a 3 piece. for those that don't understand how a record is made, don't worry! there will definitely be bass on the record. it just wont be played by craig. if we find the right person by the time we record the record, they may play on it or maybe we'll get, i don't know, sid vicious, or the guy from the replacements or maybe jaco pastorius. i hear that dead guys play better. one thing i know for sure, no matter how you slice it, this record will have the best foofoo'n bass EVER on a gob record.
anyway, good luck to craig.
in the meantime, our good friend john franco will be playing bass at our live shows. being that he is the star vocalist for the band byathread, he is overqualified for a bass only position but maybe we can get him to do some italian opera singing at our shows. anyway, it's great have him aboard.
we did a show at mount tremblant this past weekend and it was awesome. we are concentrating on writing a record so we aren't playing many shows but we do have a couple in whistler later in the month so get your asses out to rock with us..."
