Sorry for the lack of updates in late oh-eight, good people. December was a beastly month for your boy- mountains of life, work and holiday stress. But the good news for you fans is that Robert Pollard's Facebook page
has had consistent updates by yours truly for much of 2008. And the simple interface makes it a lot easier to keep up with than this blog. So if I disappear round here, you can rest assured that all the latest news and updates can be found over there.
Speaking of long overdue updates, Rockathon Records
has continued to be your one-stop source for all Bob music and merch in spite of my lack of reportage. So here's a list of what you may have missed from October to December...
1. Boston Spaceships Tour Merch, including tour tee shirts
, EAT 6 (another all-collage issue)
, and the Bostons Spaceships sticker
. And don't forget that every purchase of a BS tee shirt includes a MP3 download card with a song from new and upcoming Robert Pollard/Boston Spaceships/Circus Devils releases!
2. Robert Pollard - The Butler Stands For All Of Us 7"
- released on November 4th, the latest Robert Pollard EP features the magnificent first "single" off of January's The Crawling Distance and 4 non-album b-sides, which are...
1) First Wave
2) Elevator To Far Worse
3) The Throat Is Young
4) I Would Be A Fish Tank
This vinyl-only release is limited to 500 copies on black vinyl, so get your order in before they are gone!
3. Boston Spaceships - Headache Revolution 7"

3) 7 Is The Hot Noose

4. Robert Pollard - The Crawling Distance LP/CD
. In spite of its January 20th release date, pre-orders of Bob's latest solo LP have already been shipping and arriving! Every vinyl order comes with a free promo CD of the record, as well! And you will get a break on shipping if you combine this order with the Headache Revolution 7", using the special buttons on the order page.
