Guided by Voices & Bob Pollard

Guided by Voices – Little English League / Glue on Bicycle

I do find it a bit of a mixed bag; GBV were always a restless and slightly alien proposition, one that couldn’t really take time to worry about defining itself for eternital judgement.

The Back Catalogue of Guided By Voices

God knows how many side shows GBV members are in; I've got only two CD, Tobin Sprout's Moonflower Plastic, and Doug Gillard's 2006 solo LP Salamander (which are of course, great)...

Shit, it happened.
