Jonah Falco and Mike Haliechuk of the Toronto group Fucked Up just released a new single on White Iris Records called "Receiving the Bribe/The Wrench of Recollection". They're working under the name Smartboys, and the press materials say that "Falco and Haliechuk wrote a collection of songs together informed by the late `70s punk of The Undertones, The Testors, Jet Staxx, Twink and others." Then they got with Tim Westberg (U.S. Girls, My Mind) for the vocals. Sounds a lot like Guided By Voices to me ... so whether their guided by punk music from the 70's or guided by Bob Pollard, the music sounds pretty sweet. The single is out now on vinyl and digital.
