Gob F.U. EP

Having just been scooped up by Arista Records, Vancouver pop punk knuckleheads Gob release this teaser/compilation of past accomplishments to fill the gap while we wait for Foot in Mouth Disease and also to introduce them to unsuspecting Americans. But far from a disposable sampler, the nine-track EP features songs from the last two studio albums, three new tunes and a new version of "Soda.” It also illustrates why they are one of the few SoCal-inspired Canadian pop punk bands that actually deserve to "make it.” (Nettwerk)
