David Grubbs

A legend in the Chicago underground music scene, David Grubbs is co-founder of heavily influential acts such as Squirrel Bait, Bastro and Gastr del Sol. Both Squirrel Bait and Bastro are among post-hardcore's initial breath (specially Bastro, some kind of artsier version of Big Black), while Gastr del Sol is some kind of subsequent canalized flow of artsiness from Bastro's members.

Since co-composing with genious music scientist Jim O'Rourke is surely ego demanding, parting ways was an expected step. The last Gastr del Sol's record, Camoufleur, is definitely mainly O'Rourke's, undoubtly different (better, as a matter of fact) from Upgrade and Afterlife. Not that the latter lacks of quality; it's their peak of conventional songwriting deconstruction - but obviously evolved from Mirror Repair and the first two, and obviously Grubbs' compositional trademark.

As a solo artist, Grubbs, at first, found himself as a lo-fi folk minimalist in 'Banana Cabbage, Potato Lettuce, Onion Orange', analog to some future Richard Young's Jagjaguwar albums (Sapphie, Making Paper and May). Later albums gradually became more unpretentious, specially in The Spectrum Between, a great example of what would became almost all of his Drag City records afterwards; Rickets and Scurvy and A Guess at the Riddle fit well to the style mentioned, while Off-Road and Act Five, Scene One are mostly experimental acts.

Please re-upload Grubbs's material. I'm very interested in his post-Gastr period, specially on Spectrum Between or Thicket.

I am a parent and work night shift. I don't want to turn my Iphone off while I'm sleeping just incase one of the kids call or other important person i.e. boss. Can I set my phone up with a list of contacts that when I turn the app on only those selected will ring and all others will go straight to voice mail? Tired of getting woke up needlessly.

Am I able to get ring tones from the myxer website onto my iphone 3g s? How do I go about doing this? And is it really 100% free and safe to download stuff? I obviously have unlimited internet and text, but I wanted to make sure it wouldn't cost anything and wouldn't have a virus or something. Thanks!

I jailbroke my iphone 3g 2.2.1 with quickpwn and it froze. Now when I turn it on it shows and apple icon and a loading pinwheel but never goes any further. Is it possible to fix it without restoring it to its factory settings?

I'm 6 months into my contract and my iphone was stolen. AT&T has no way of tracking stolen iphones however, I did report it to Apple. I want to purchase a new one but I don't want to pay the out right price. I feel I should be able to pay what a new contract person would pay if I continue to keep my existing contract. Comments?

A complete newbie to forex trading, I am having difficulties figuring out where to look for information, but also what exactly to look for. Commodities? Bank quarterly results?
