Bobby’s third full length album, The Golden Age, was released last fall and his critique and celebration of suburban excess is resonating with fans around the globe. Critics and fans agree, Bobby is the complete package. A recent N. American tour prompted one cynic to proclaim Bobby’s performance “The greatest show I have ever seen!"
In a move designed to further Bobby’s recent success, Thrill Jockey presents 5 interpretations of the global hit song “Winners”. In addition to the album version, Tortoise’s John McEntire turns this pop gem into a rumbling no-wave engine. Hot Detroit electro duo ADULT. get the kids on the dancefloor with their “losers mix”, Mr. Pot Bear emphasizes the tune’s magnificent horn arrangement and upstart Chicago techno-maven Magas strips the tune down to its raw essence. There are winners and losers, and Mr. Conn certainly falls into the former category.
