Guided By Voices Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records

I’d imagine you’re aware of them, given that they have a new record plastered over our front-page every other fortnight, but just in case: Guided by Voices is Robert Pollard’s idiosyncratic pet project, once full of smart songwriter buckos like...read more »

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...view item »

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...view item »

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 thei...view item »

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 ...view item »

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. ...view item »

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 t...view item »

Guided By Voices
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 albu...view item »

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 t...view item »

Guided By Voices
Let's Go Eat The Factory

Got a confession to make...I've never been a big fan of Guided By Voices. I'm not sure why, after all they tick most of my boxes in terms of style and content and they were highly active at the most significant period in my musical development. I guess it's the volume of work I always foun...view item »

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. &nb...view item »

Guided By Voices
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 (in...view item »

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.

Tobin Sprout

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....pos...view item »

ESP Ohio
Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean

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 t...view item »

Guided By Voices
Motivational Jumpsuit

They may be noted as one of the more prolific bands in rock but of late I’ve wondered if their albums really are albums at all. They all seem to have about 8 or 9 great tracks and a slew of filler that you’ll just skip next time you play it. ‘Class Clown Spots a UFO’ was a stone cold classic, start to finish but o...view item »

Due to their plethora of never ending releases surely GBV must now be our most reviewed band.

Of last years tri...view item »

Xeno Pariah

Guided By Voices reformed in 2012 and released 5 albums and countless singles in two years. The best of the bunch was probably “English Little League”, and “Xeno Pariah” was the opening track.
