***For a portion of the degenerate minority who buy records and obsess over ‘em, THE GOTOBEDS first came to attention when word began to spread that KIM PHUC guitarist ELI KASAN and drummer (turned guitarist) TOM PAYNE had a new band. That powerhouse pedigree certainly didn’t hurt, but non-residents of Blitzburgh were in for a slight headfuck upon hearing The Gotobeds’ debut 7”, “Ipso Facto (It’s All Happening)” (Mind Cure) in the Fall of 2013.  Teamed with bassist GAVIN JENSEN and drummer CARY BELBECK, the quartet’s chaotic take on smart-dude avant punk could’ve passed for one of the best singles of 1979, ’89, ’99, really, any year that ended in a 9. 1859.  2019. A subsequent 45 for Mind Cure, spring 2014’s “New York’s Alright (If You Like Sex & Phones)” upped the ante considerably; though one publication called it Lee Ving-baiting, ’twas a Parquet Courts LP that was smashed into tiny pieces in the song’s widely seen music video.  Lest anyone believes this was a manufactured attempt at creating a feud, the simple fact of the matter is that hardly anyone is willing to talk about the consequences of poor LP handling. You call it a promotional clip, I call it a PSA—can’t we simply agree the song was amazing? After some OTT blog hyperventilating and an action-packed trip to SXSW and back, we can fast forward to Poor People Are Revolting, as confident and filler-free a debut rock album as you’re gonna hear in these sad, sloppy times.
