Am disappointed there weren't more bob solo Tobin tracks.

Awful Bliss?
To Remake the Young Flyer???

"Pricks", in terms of sheer songwriting, is probably the best thing he ever wrote.

This guy knew what he was talking about, whatever happened to him?

Juice Should Be Sterliized (Tom D.), Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yeah that's domination. But it deserves it!

Actually these were my #1 and #4

justfanoe (Greg Fanoe), Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:38 (2 years ago) Permalink

Johnny #1 for even bothering with this at all, but also for ensuring proper results.
The time came, and he added up the numbers. A man of energy.

Satisfying result, I'm pleased. Live versions of Game of Pricks are good enough to make my head pop clean off.

Art Arfons (La Lechera), Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

So who else voted for "Official Ironmen" as their #1? So curious.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

Am disappointed there weren't more bob solo tracks. Definitely deserve to be in the top 60.

I had a load of Bob solo tracks then ditched them to make it less complicated

thanks for organizing Johnny!

Thanks so much Johnny Fever. There will always be a place for this poll in the Superior Sector Janitor X of my heart.

kornrulez6969, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

thank yo Johnny for this poll! it's been such fun to participate. well, the only thing that disappointed me was the placing of "Awful Bliss". I thought it's a kind of a consensus that it's a top Tobin?

V79, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Yes Johnny, thanks a lot!

ArchCarrier, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hey, I had a great time doing this. While the Pavement poll was a fun and uniting exercise, they've always been a band I just kind of like. GBV is a band I spent many years loving whole-heartedly. Now that the poll's done, I feel like I've sent a firstborn off to college or something.

Johnny Fever, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

the one bob solo song that immediately comes to mind for me as being up there with the best of the best is "get under it"

bluelips, Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:44 (2 years ago) Permalink

Are people really that unfamiliar with Uncle Dave or was it just not in the top20 running for you guys?

"Twilight Campfighter" was in my Top 20 (several xposts)

My favourite Bob solo track is "Psychic Pilot Clocks Out". Then "Girl Named Captain". Then "Subspace Biographies".

Juice Should Be Sterliized (Tom D.), Thursday, 29 September 2011 19:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

"Uncle Dave" has never been recompiled anywhere beyond a fan comp, so I think its understandable that most people haven't heard it.

The Official Ironmen Rally Song
Drinker's Peace
Cigarette Tricks

I was the only vote for 'Lethargy'? Really? I didn't know that song was not that well-liked. I think they've played it at every show I've seen.
