“Musically, The Gotobeds fit under a kind of catch-all slacker indie-punk umbrella. Early Pavement is one of the most obvious comparisons — the bands share the same kind of defiant looseness — but the group also recalls the freneticism of The Gun Club, the slipshod orderliness of Gang of Four, the brattiness of The Buzzcocks and the punk minimalism of Wire.”Margaret Welsh (Pittsburgh City Paper)

Check out the band on Facebook, BandCamp and SoundCloud. The Pittsburgh punk quintet are fresh off a SXSW jaunt promoting their latest 7″ “New York’s Alright (If You Like Sex & Phones)” and I want to thank Eli ‘Hazy Lazer’ Kasan (Guitar/Vocals) for taking the time to participate in this edition of First/Last.

Thanks, Eli. Are you referring to the Elliott Smith CMU Halloween gig? Man, talk about a concert I wish I was able to see.
