Fucking In The Future + 5

Comedy Minus One
LP $15.50

BACK IN STOCK!!! Curious aesthetes! Cursorily interested parties! Whatever the opposite of well-wishers are! You are each are invited to re-examine THE GOTOBEDS’ past that is contained herein. These sounds represent the embryonic stages of said band—Five songs are culled from their unfortunately-titled 2012 demo tape Fucking in the Future, four are from the Mind Cure 45s “Ipso Facto” and “NY’s Alright,” as well as a recently-recorded cover of “Flowers Avenue,” a song by their dearly-departed friend and Pittsburgh music legend Karl Hendricks. From demo to forever-out-of-print 7”s to the cover, Fucking in the Future + 5 spans the earliest recording of the band to the their most-recent (the Karl Hendricks track was recorded in March 2017).  Boy how they’ve grown! When the band convened on the studio for the first time ever as a unit in those halcyon days of 2012, it was a bleak scene. The drummer forgot his floor tom. The bass speaker had torn recently and was not replaced. The singer was at the mercy of the final stages of mono and the guitarist didn’t show up for live tracking (due to a previous night of gambling at the casino).  Little has changed however. During the final take of “Flowers Avenue,” drummer Getty Images dropped his stick at a thrilling climax during the solo (check the 4:10 mark) and the band – assuming the take was a throwaway – played harder and took more risks with their improvised parts, lending the song a looser and more exciting feel than previous takes. Happy accidents are what the band trades in.  The rest is allmusic.com history. The Gotobeds went on from their initial recordings to the WFMU studios, into Gerard Cosloy’s hands for their debut LP on 12XU, the brilliantly titled Poor People Are Revolting, to critical darlings and eventually the cut-out bin at Sub Pop’s airport store.
