Guided By Voices
Winecork Stonehenge

It looks like Guided By Voices are gearing up for a hefty release schedule in 2019. They already have Zeppelin Over China, a double album, chalked in for a February release with another album, It’s Warp And Woof, due in April. Before all that excitement however, there are a couple of 7” singles to buy, one of which is Winecork Stonehenge. 7” on Guided By Voices Inc.

Guided By Voices
Sweating The Plague

Robert Pollard slams his hand down hard on the top of his guitar amplifier. Sweat pours from his brow; his eyes, heavily-bagged from the sleepless nights, glower with deranged intensity; his clothes are now but rags, ripped and filthy. ‘Again! Dammit, again! We’ll play … the songs … again.’ ‘B… but Robert’, pipes up one of his fellow Guided By Voices members - it’s hard to tell which seeing as all of the band are now a huddled mass, cowering in the darkest corner of the rehearsal room - ‘Robert, we’re exhausted. We’ve been in this room for three days, playing melodious indie-rock in the Hüsker Dü/Pavement mould non-stop, and we simply can’t go on any further. We need rest. We need food. We need to see our families. We’ve already released two LPs in 2019 anyway - isn’t that enough?’ ‘No!’ shouts Robert, punching a hole in the wall to emphasise his point. ‘No. We go again. We’ll be in here rehearsing our new record Sweating The Plague until it’s done, and it’s done why I say it’s done. Kapeesh?’ ‘Y… yes Robert.’

Guided By Voices
Heavy Like The World

Here we go again, not content with releasing two albums already in 2019, Guided By voices are onto a third Sweating the Plague. Thing is, the last one Warp and Woof was pretty good in a kind of cut and splice Alien Lanes manner. The lead track off Sweating the Plague is really rather good too, one of those 'mature' mid paced ballads they roll out every so often just to prove they can sometimes play with a straight bat and beat the competition hands down.  This limited edition 7" features non album B side Silent Army.

Guided By Voices
The Bears For Lunch

New cheap (whilst stocks last) copies of this rather excellent 2012 album by the reunited 'classic' line up of Robert Pollard's long running Guided By Voices. It's probably the second best (after Class Clown Spots a UFO) of this period of the band and sees Pollard using an economical form of songwriting where one good riff or chord change seems to suffice per song. Also has the usual batch of very good Tobin Sprout-penned tracks.

Robert Pollard
Kid Marine

Kid Marine was the third album (in a discography which now contains approximately two billion albums) by Guided By Voices indefatigable leader, Robert Pollard. It was originally released in 1999, so this is a spiffing 20th anniversary reissue. Apparently it’s Pollard’s favourite amongst his solo albums. A good enough reason to hit ‘add to cart’.

Guided By Voices
Zeppelin Over China

The insanely prolific Robert Pollard releases yet another collection of grungy niceness with his Guided By Voices crew. At thirty-two songs and seventy-five minutes, Zeppelin Over China is long even by GBV standards. Indeed, it’s remarkable that an album with this many songs can remain so consistently good throughout. Then again, Pollard is a pretty remarkable talent.

Guided By Voices
Warp and Woof

And Another! As Alan Partridge might say. Warp And Woof is Guided By Voices’ ultra-speedy follow-up to February’s double offering, Zeppelin Over China. Robert Pollard and co. have taken their already prolific nature and turbo charged it. This one prides itself on cramming lots of songs into less that 40 minutes, a similar feat to the band’s ‘90s classic Alien Lanes. Let's hope it matches it in quality too. On Guided By Voices Inc.

EAT 15: (Dislodge) The Immortal Orangemen

Not only does Robert Pollard produce a lot of music, he makes a lot of art as well. Here for the first time he combines both practices into a lovingly prepared 240 full colour page book which goes with a six song vinyl 7" of tunes exclusive to this release. Limited to 1000 copies and part of a series of art based releases from the Guided By Voices frontman.

Guided By Voices
Just To Show You / Knife City

Here's a 7" taster of something from America's most tired band and official power pop grand pops Guided By Voices forthcoming boringly titled 'How Do You Spell Heaven' album. It includes an exclusive B side and comes on limited translucent green wax . Warning: listening to it might not enhance your life in anyway whatsoever.   

Guided By Voices
100 Dougs

Guided By Voices seem to be rattling out the releases. Space Gun was their most recent acclaimed LP and it's due to be followed by It’s Warp and Woof early next year and a future double album. Before it all, here's 100 Dougs, a 7" EP of Country influenced Rock songs to sink your teeth into.

Robert Pollard
Waved Out

Not only do we have to wade through a new Robert Pollard/Guided By Voices record each week, we now have re-issues to contend with. 'Waved out' was Pollard's second second solo album and came from an era where I was still fairly excited about his output. It's good, if not quite as good as it's predecessor 'Not In My Airport'. The highlight is 'People Are Leaving' where Pollard creates a brilliant double melody by singing over himself. It's worth the admission price alone. 

Robert Pollard
100

The most recent Guided By Voices album August By Cake was the one hundredth studio album that Robert Pollard has been involved in, a fairly impressive thing by anyone’s standards. To celebrate, this book is being released, featuring the front and back covers of every single one of those 100 albums. 100 is a 200-page book in a 12” x 12” format, so all the LP covers are ‘life-size’.

Guided By Voices
King Shit & The Golden Boys

King Shit & The Golden Boys is a compilation of outtakes from Guided By Voices’ early period and Bee Thousand era. Previously only available with the 5-disc set Box, this is the first time it has been issued on its own. This is essential for any fan who didn't realise their was a hole in their GBV collection. King Shit & The Golden Boys is available on vinyl LP.

Guided By Voices
Space Gun

Since we started our #namethenewguidedbyvoicesalbum hashtag Guided By Voices album titles have become really boring. Here's the latest one  - 'Space Gun'. 'Reversed Hen Tsunami Plot' will just have to wait I suppose. This is the third from the new classic GBV line up which includes such future legends as Mark Shue and Bobby Bare Jr. We're told Robert Pollard's songwriting has reached new heights of brilliance on this one. Hope so. 

Guided By Voices
See My Field

Guided By Voices reckon that their new album 'Space Gun' is so good that they are only releasing that one and that one only in 2018. None of their usual distraction tactics. Here's an early taster which features bonus B-sides from drummer March and bassist Shue. They all chip in these days and have become a 5 headed power pop sex beast.

Guided By Voices
Ogre's Trumpet

Tobin Sprout - pah! Mitch Mitchell - who? We all know that the new classic Guided By Voices line up is the Pollard/Gillard/March/Shue/Bare Jr one that rocked Asbury Park, New Jersey in August 2017. Were you there? Probably not but now you can relive the sights, the smells and the sounds of the grandpops of lo-fi as they rattle through their last two albums and throw in a smattering of classics from earlier incarnations.

August By Cake

Robert Pollard is proud to announce that August By Cake is his one hundredth studio album release: pretty ludicrous, especially for a career of just(!) three decades. This one is Pollard’s prime group Guided By Voices, in a fresh new line-up, and it’s their first double album! Yep, still breaking new ground at this advanced hour… Congratulations Mr Pollard!

Guided By Voices
Live From Austin, TX

Back in 2004, Robert Pollard had decided that Guided By Voices, a band that had been his baby for more than 20 years, had run it’s course. Live From Austin, Texas was one of the band’s final gigs, and you can now share the emotional night with them again. Available on 2LP vinyl or 2CD+DVD. It needs to be pointed out that Guided By Voices reformed in 2012 and have released a further 9 albums to date.

How Do You Spell Heaven

Rather like Mark E Smith, Robert Pollard has a habit of pulling out a plum just when you are thinking it's all over. Re-grouped and re-invigorated with an (almost) all new line up, last years August By Cake was more like the band we remembered and hot on it's heels we get another. Fifteen new tunes from the fab (insert this week's line up number).

Tobin Sprout
Carnival Boy

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, but also made music all of his own. 1996 solo debut Carnival Boy is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release two decades ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.

Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam)

Tobin Sprout is part of the huge indie ecosystem surrounding Guided By Voices. He spent ten years majorly contributing to the band, and after their initial split in 1997 he put out some music of his own. Moonflower Plastic (Welcome To My Wigwam) is a beautiful set of lo-fi indie songwriting, and it hasn’t really been available since its initial release twenty years ago! Now reissued on Burger Records.

Ricked Wicky
Swimmer to a Liquid Armchair

If you thought that when Guided By Voices broke up that frontman Robert Pollard was just going to disappear, become a recluse living in a log cabin recording feedback into a four-track then you’d be very wrong. The indefatigably prolific indie-rock legend has started a new band, Ricked Wicky and Swimmer To A Liquid Armchair is their third, yes, third album in less than twelve months. This album is more assured than the previous two. This is not just a disposable side-project for him, this is his new thing.

  • Guided By Voices

Tobin Sprout
The Universe and Me

Increasingly responsible for the better bits on recent Guided By Voices albums, Tobin Sprout doesn't quite have the all or nothing genius/madman approach of Robert Pollard but what he does have is consistency. It's very hard to find a bad Tobin Sprout track. They are all sort of enjoyable....possibly because most of them use the same tried and tested formula of lo-fi melodic chord progressions and his reedy voice singing hummable melodies that get stuck in your craw.

ESP Ohio
Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean

ESP Ohio is yet another band by Robert Pollard, working once again with his fellow Guided By Voices member Doug Gillard. Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean is a proper nice rock album, with guitar chug, bonus brass parts, and catchy tunes. The good ship Pollard sails on… Released by the Guided By Voices Inc. record label

Guided By Voices
Please Be Honest

The endless productivity of Robert Pollard continues apace with Please Be Honest, designated a Guided By Voices album even though Pollard played every last sound on it. The 15 speedy songs on here give us the latest insights into this remarkably creativity, via a variety of nicely textured tunes. Out on Guided By Voices Inc.

Teenage Guitar
Force Fields At Home

More home-spun nonsense comes from Robert Pollard, who is frankly terrible at post-GBV retirement (which he has evoked twice now). Force Fields at Home sees his newest moniker Teenage Guitar spinning through jangle pop tunes similar to those of old, but without the same spry backbone. They'll tell you it's '90s GBV at heart, because that's what you want to hear -- but maybe it's better off you knowing that this is Pollard in his new, even weirder era, and that's pretty cool too.

Guided By Voices
Suitcase 4: Captain Kangaroo Won The War

You would think, due to Guided By Voices' prolific release schedule, that they wouldn’t have held anything back. However, they have: Suitcase 4: Captain Kangaroo Won The War is the fourth instalment of 100 rarities and previously unreleased tracks spread over 4 CDs. Limited edition too…..don’t miss out! There is also a vinyl version available

Circus Devils
Stomping Grounds

Stomping Grounds is the thirteenth album by Circus Devils, the band fronted by indie-rock’s most prolific man, Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices, Ricked Wicky). Stomping Grounds is an album of two halves: side one is packed with thrusting rock ‘n’ roll whilst side two explores a more adventurous psychedelic and proggy path.

Teenage Guitar
More Lies From The Gooseberry Bush

Robert Pollard is the ringleader of the merry indie rock men Guided By Voices, who have been releasing dozens upon dozens of records since the late 80s. Pollard is renowned for making surreal jangle pop classics that are snipped off at the ends, traditionally playing them out at under two minutes at length. As such, he's got a lot of time to write more songs: his average output a year is about ten records, under about five different aliases. Teenage Guitar is yet another solo project of his, and brings forth the bizarre, experimental reaches of his brain for a concept album with thousands of tracks (well, like, twenty-odd). It's arguably his most conceptual record since Guided By Voices' 'Mag Earwhig!', full of lo-fi humming and loose vignettes. Billed by Pollard and PopMatters as being more Pollard than Pollard, this is definitely an album by Robert Pollard.    Tracks: Go Around (The Apartment Dwellers) Spliced At Acme Fair A Guaranteed Ratio Good Mary's House Skin Ride Full Glass Gone All You Fought For Gear OP No Escape Matthew's Ticker and Shaft  a. come to breakfast b. the girls arrive c. division of swans d. when death has a nice ring The Instant American Normalized New Light Birthplace of the Electric Starter A Year That Could Have Been Worse

Class Clown Spots A UFO

Class Clown Spots A UFO is the 2nd album in to be released in 2012 and 18th studio album in all by the prolific indie pop maestros Guided By Voices. The band have also released 17 EPs and 39 singles. Class Clown Spots A UFO has been likened to their '90s classics Bee Thousand and Alien Lanes in terms of quality -- lofty praise indeed! Class Clown Spots A UFO is available on vinyl LP, CD and Cassette.

Bee Thousand

Not only is Bee Thousand widely regarded as one of the best Guided By Voices albums, but it is also widely regarded as one of the best indie rock albums ever made. Reissued for its 20th anniversary, the album has been remastered, is housed in a hefty gatefold sleeve and is pressed on high-quality vinyl. This album is so good, it even had a beer made in its honour - Beer Thousand.

Guided By Voices
Half Smiles of The Decomposed

'Half Smiles of the Decomposed' was the final Guided By Voices album in their first life before several years of myriad of solo projects prior to their return in 2010. As a result the album always had an air of finality about it particularly in closer 'Huffman Prairie Flying Field' but it's full of their usual razor sharp riffs and pop classic melodies particularly the effortless power-pop of 'Girls of Wild Strawberry'. If you like GBV, you'll need this.
