GIRLS AGAINST BOYS Live 01-01-93, 9:30 Club, Washington D.C.
September 1, 2008
So, Touch & Go have finally decided to reissue some essential records from their back catalogue (Killdozer, Die Kreuzen, Pegboy), one of them being GVSB’s ‘Venus Luxure #1 baby’. I used to listen to this album all the time in 93-94, ‘Bulletproof Cupid’ was on the Radio 1 playlist which was an obvious indicator they were headed for bigger things. It’s a shame they never really topped this album, although ‘Cruise Yourself’ was a strong follow up. The band’s ‘sexycool Martini drinking NYC playboy’ vibe became overbearing resulting in 1998’s rather hideous major label debut ‘Freak on Ica’. Since then they regrouped and put out a record on Jade Tree in 2002, I have no idea what it sounds like & no desire to find out. Instead I shall leave you with this peak live set:
