Guided By Voices
« on: September 08, 2009, 01:04:38 PM »
There's only been one GBV thread on here and i figured we needed a new one with links. Some of the most infectious, lo-fi melodies you'll ever hear (they're pretty short but it only takes one listen before you're clicking "Repeat" over and over again)

Guided by Voices "Bee Thousand"

Guided By Voices "Alien Lanes"

anything they did from the 80s till about 95 or so is unfuckwithable. after that pollard did some fine tuning for the worst, lost that lo-fi sound but oh well. Bee Thousand is definitely their masterpiece.

So true. AL has some amazing ones though... "As We Go Up, We Go Down" and "Game Of Pricks" are two of my favorites

yeah, alien lanes kills it as well. "Motor Away" would have to be my favorite on that album, with "Game of Pricks" a close second.

Pavement < GBV
Fun piece of trivia, Robert Pollard wrote the entire Pacers Album for The Amps along with how many GBV full albums and EPs and Breeders songs. A really underappreciated pop lyricist. Teenage FBI will always be one of my favourite songs ever.
they're a whole gang of rag tag scalliwag's, but helga in the back is definitely in it for the strudels

It's a really hard choice with GBV or Pavement. "Wowee Zowee" is like a 90's indie rock version of The White Album. Both are fucking original and classic in there own right

Man do I love Guided By Voices. I dunno though, a lot of their stuff can be hit or miss with me sometimes, but when they hit they hit hard. I've been listening to "King Shit and the Golden Boys" a lot lately, it's a collection of a lot of their rare unused tracks and b-sides; Definitely check that album out if you haven't heard it yet, a good chunk of the songs on it were recorded in the same sessions in which Bee Thousand songs were done but never made it on.

Also, Bee Thousand < Alien Lanes.
That's right, I said it.

ha no way i'd agree w/ that, pavement were the most consistently original band of the 90's...but GBV had an amazing knack for pure pop melodies for sure. and if you're into the lo-fi aesthetic they were certainly the most true to it (compared to pavement, sebadoh, so on...)

I have been a HUGE fan for about 15 years.  I've seen Bob perform live about 50 times. 

If anyone needs to know where next to go in his often overwhelming discography, I can be of assistance.  Bob's done a lot of collaborative work with other artists that generally fly under-the-radar.  One of note was Go Back Snowball, which was a collab. with Mac McCaughan(of Superchunk/Merge Records).

For an in-depth look at the GbV catalogue, see here:

http://www.gbvdb.com/


If I could recommend recent projects I would say go with Circus Devils-Sgt. Disco, Robert Pollard-From A Compound Eye, Robert Pollard-Elephant Jokes or the new Boston Spaceships-Zero to 99.  All four of those albums are seriously fucking awesome!

Bob was romantically involved with Kim Deal.

Nice.  A friend of mine, who is also a hardcore fan, lists VoT as his least fav. GbV release.  I can't understand why...Wished I Was A Giant, Jar of Cardinals, Gleemer, Wondering Boy Poet...so many good ones.

Here's a GbV message board.  It is very insular.

There's a new boxset coming out in a few weeks.

http://www.amazon.com/Suitcase-Up-We-Go-Now/dp/B002NCUF5I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=music&qid=1255446529&sr=8-1

http://www.thefactoryofrawessentials.com/index.html

Up We Go Now is the third in the Suitcase series of unreleased Robert Pollard / Guided By Voices tracks excavated from a suitcase of cassettes in his closet. Like the previous two volumes, Suitcase 3 includes 100 songs on four compact discs in a box. Disc 4 is an acoustic jam session by Pollard, Tobin Sprout, and Greg Demos in 1994-1995 (the period between GBV classics Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes).

How does $10 sound?  Probably scalpers trying to cut their loses.  *the east coast shows sold-out in minutes...tickets to the show in Newport, KY were selling on ebay for $300/pr.
