¡All-Time Quarterback! is a solo-project alias of Ben Gibbard, frontman of Death Cab for Cutie and The Postal Service. There have, so far, been three releases under the name and the "straight to Walkmen" cassette release The Envelope Sessions (which included "Underwater", which was later rerecorded by Death Cab for Cutie for a 7" single on Sub Pop). Both were released on Bellingham, Washington, label Elsinor, and a small mini-tour occurred to support the releases. Gibbard went back to Death Cab for Cutie to record their second album.
In 2002, with both original releases out-of-print, Barsuk Records put out the ¡All-Time Quarterback! CD album. Consisting of the best of both releases, along with an outtake from the original EP sessions and a video for "Plans Get Complex", (which was shot in a variety of locations across London, including Regent Street and a London Underground train), this release is currently still available. This has been the most recent action under the ¡All-Time Quarterback! name.
