A 747 in Your Living Room.

The now famous Ed McGowan, who bought a copy of the Guided By Voices album Propeller on eBay for $6,200:

I’ve seen a lot of bands in my day and GBV when they’re “on” are far and away the most exciting rock and roll experience you will ever have. Remember when you were a teenager, the feeling you got when you blasted “The Punk Meets the Godfather” into your headphones while looking in the mirror? Or, oops, was that just me? Expand that feeling over three hours in a room full of screaming, sweaty, jumping people and you have a typical GBV show. To paraphrase Bono, the live GBV experience is like having a 747 land in your living room.
