Former Guided by Voices guitarist Tobin Sprout is slated
to release a limited-edition (1,000 copies), two-LP vinyl set of demos
titled Demos & Outtakes before year's end, according to a spokesperson
for the singer. The 31-track effort will offer rough previews of songs
slated for the debut album from Sprout's new band, eyesinweasel.
A single-CD version of the demo set with fewer tracks is scheduled for
an early-2000 release. A two-song debut single from eyesinweasel
which features bassist Dan Toohey, another GBV alumnus is
slated for release in January. The single will feature the songs "Seven
and Nine" and "Daughters of the Moon (the Jim Eno Version)"; a full-length
album from the band is expected later in the year.
