If you like Godspeed you might want to check out the band called Rachel's. They're a lot like them except piano is more prominent.

there is something in the liner notes of lift your skinny fists about empty streets at dawn. nothing could be more special than blasting that record on the way home early in the morning

Moya is possibly my favourite song of all time, so provocative and dynamic, i think the thing about gybe is that there songs are progressive and they are developing all the time untill and explosive climax.....the climax in moya is to amazing and suspenseful

A lot of people talk shit about it, but I like Yanqui the best. It's so weird, it's always the album I least look foward to listening to, but enjoy the most. The idea of there not being dramatic tempo shifts or earth shattering climaxes bothers me in theory, but as soon as I listen, it completely holds my attention. Every second oozes with an attention to detail I don't feel is as prominent with their other releases. I zone out when I listen to their other CDs, but I can completely focus in on Yanqui and be enraptured the entire time. It's monolithic in the best sense of the word. I think pitchfork desribed it as glacial, and I agree, but it a good way. You can tell where it's going from minute one, but there's an overwhelming force beneath the shimmering surface.
But a lot of people think the production is muddy and the songs are plodding, so whatever.
I really like all their releases though.

On the godspeed website it says there's no plan to tour anytime soon. And it's been 2 years since yanuqi, so theoretically there should be an album out now. Not sure what that means. But to be fair, they did work on Yanqui 4 years, all the way through the EP and Skinny Fists.

The last thing I heard is that Roger Tellier-Craig left GBYE to push Fly Pan Am to the maximum. And the other members of GYBE want to continue.

"moya" reminds me of "adagio for strings." both good songs. i think theyre in the same key too. whenever i look for cds i check for gybe, mogwai and smz, but nobody in my area has them. the other day i went into mad platter (indie record store i guess) and they had cds of all three. i couldnt decide what to buy. so i bought "birth of the cool" which is what i had originally intended to buy. the burned copy i had was getting pretty ruined.

should i get f#a#oo or lift yr. fists?

There's always this guy who gets cited as the main visionary behind the group, does anyone know who I'm talking about, and does anyone know if he left? Also, what are the side projects he's involved in?

yeah, i kind of feel the same way, i never want to listen to it but when i do i think this is fucking awesome and then i dont listen to it again for a while. i think maybe because it doesnt have any spoken word stuff its less appealing but really it is a fantastic album
