Guided By Voices
Twenty-two years ago in 1994, 38-year-old school teacher Robert Pollard & his merry band recorded Bee Thousand in a Dayton, Ohio basement on a 4-track cassette recorder. This improbable rock classic became an enormously influential album; Spin and Pitchfork have called it one of the best records of the ’90s, and Amazon picked Bee Thousand as #1 on their list of the 100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums Of All Time. An amazing live band with a rabid following, the Washington Post called GBV “the Grateful Dead equivalent for people who like Miller Lite instead of acid!”
GBV’s new line-up re-unites Robert Pollard with former bandmembers Doug Gillard and Kevin March, along with exciting newcomers Mark Shue and Bobby Bare Jr. The group has been wowing audiences from coast to coast following fantastic new albums How Do You Spell Heaven and August By Cake (Robert Pollard’s 100th release!)
“Thirty-five years into the band’s career, Guided By Voices has just released a bold, infectious and ever-vital new album called Space Gun.” – NPR All Songs Considered
“Pollard is still remaking his rock heroes in his own image… it’s pretty great” – Rolling Stone
“While some bands can mellow and smooth with age, Guided by Voices continue to unleash both on record and on stage.” – Ghettoblaster
“Pollard is a singular figure in rock ‘n’ roll history.” – Magnet 8.5/10
“15 more blink-and-you’ll miss ‘em hook-fests with reliably wacko phraseology … a generous and potent fix of Pollard eccentricity.” – 4/5 MOJO
“an exhilarating rush of well-oiled playing, great production and even better tunes, and it displays the tightest-ever Guided by Voices lineup at full bore.” – Glide, 9/10
“Guided by Voices are quietly in the midst of a late-career renaissance… Pollard is in especially fine fettle, with his bent pop melodies and gloriously cryptic lyrics a perfect match for a band that can play this stuff with a power that belies its detail-oriented intuition.” – All Music
