What are Mark and I but children of the current age of consumerism? Marketing is the overlord, and who are we but serfs that genuflect at the feet of our master? So many question! So few sandwich!
With all this marketing shit in mind, we created the Laugh Stains brand for our more visually lush videos. But what about the videos we make that are still worthy but not as complex? Well, now folks, you have Wrestling Team's Giggle Trough!
And first up for the Giggle Trough is an old Guided by Voices video we found on a VHS tape in the back of my closet. This is a forgotten track off of Mag Earwhig, the transitional album between Tobin Sprout-era GBV and Cobra Verde-era GBV. Ah, mid-90s indie rock. The return to the working class aesthetic. The low-fi devil-may-care tape hiss. Were we ever so naive?
