Girl Talk @ Pool Party Summer '09 (more by Tim Griffin)
Girl Talk

Girl Talk's label Illegal Art is offering all of the Girl Talk albums, and their entire catalog, as pay-what-you-wish downloads. Not all of the label's back catalog is up, but there is a release schedule (below) for the yet-to-be uploaded (including Girl Talk's debut Secret Diary). The label is also offering Gillis's 2006 break-out album Night Ripper for the first time on vinyl on December 8th.

With that news is also the news that Gregg Gillis will be at Meadowlands Sports Complex on May 2nd. That's the second night of the Bamboozle fest, which is being headlined by the recently-sidelined Weezer. Either the festival is becoming more diverse or the artists are appealing to a bigger fan base. The headliner for night one (consistent with what we know about Bamboozle) is Paramore (at least I think they are one of the headliners). As previously mentioned, tickets are on sale Friday.

Girl Talk's other upcoming US show is a sold-out New Year's Eve gig at Chicago's Congress Theater. He plays Australia and New Zealand this January. All dates and the Illegal Art Pay What You Wish release schedule are below...

Yeah, that big phony sell out. He's always been only about not selling out (ummm) and what a jerk for GIVING AWAY THE MONEY that people DONATE in exchange for his free albums.

I would have loved to see Girl Talk - back when I was 12!

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2009 10:12 PM

So let the 12 year olds see and enjoy him. Is that really so painful for you guys?

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2009 10:34 PM

considering that he has shitloads of hipster girls dry humping his back after playing with his macbook..(i don't see any 13 year olds) doing of this? *sigh*

I give the guy a lot of credit making money doing what he does - I just don't understand why he gets mentioned on sites like this. I like to read about real music, not junk like Girl Talk.

that girl talk weiner and his mac book is a perfect example of what's wrong with ravers. The xtc fried their brains!
where is aphex twin and kompakt when you need them?

Posted by Anonymous | December 7, 2009 11:08 PM

Kompakt is very much around. I doubt there is even a smidge of overlap between Girl Talk fans and Kompakt fans. What do the two have to do with each other? They both use instruments that plug in?

I really don't consider the kids that go see Girl Talk "ravers"!

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 12:09 AM

what is definition of a raver?
that's the important question.

cant wait for this flavor of the year dipshit to fade away into the annals of pop/crap history. he'll be on one of the vh1 shows "i love the 2000's" or some shit or where are they now?

jesus christ.

has anyone noticed that girl talk looks like a guy?

just a hunch.

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 11:37 AM

This message board has been calling him Flavor of the Year for 3 years straight now

free KIA test drives at every show?

girl talk has sampled aphex twin and cites him as a major influence

Posted by Anonymous | December 8, 2009 11:33 PM

Had a listen to his Night Ripper y'day. I'm honestly not digging the music selection, but he's got some spot on mash-ups in there, I'll give him that. This style of playing ain't necessarily "new", but the dude's passion for what he does can be heard throughout the mix. I'd give a chance seeing him live..when he'll be around London.

Secret Diary is such a bad album. Not even worth the hard drive space, except maybe for comedic reasons.
