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

Well here it is: the one hundredth album of Robert Pollard. I know. I’ll be honest, I’m a little disappointed that he didn’t name it after any of my suggestions, including ‘Praying Mantis Steals a Dune Buggy’ and ‘Professor of Economics Makes an Emergency Landing’. Frankly, I don’t know how he coul...view item »

Guided By Voices
Just To Show You / Knife City

First sounds from the forthcoming Guided By Voices album and the lead track has Robert Pollard on autopilot. Type "re-write The Official Ironman's Rally Song" into the internet and you'll get this. It's ok - ish  - the tune is rather pretty but I'm thinking the samey repetitive lyric lets it down. An unusual situation for the usually full o...view item »

Guided By Voices
How Do You Spell Heaven

He just won’t stop keeping on. You’d think after a centennial celebration he’d be down to lie low for a while, but Uncle Bob is nothing without an outstayed welcome. Back after the overlong but moderately enjoyed ‘August By Cake’, his one hundredth album in total, Robert Pollard puts ...view item »

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 Polla...view item »

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 spr...view item »

Guided By Voices
Suitcase 4: Captain Kangaroo Won The War

As Robin pointed out elsewhere in the reviews this week perhaps the best art is that which is devoid of point….but there is a limit. As Robert Pollard howls uncontrollably out of tune on ‘No-One’s Looking For You’ even I find it hard to believe that he has long be...view item »

Ricked Wicky
I Sell The Circus

Notorious for shooting the shit to an almost excessive degree, Robert Pollard’s new projects come and go: the only thing you can be sure of is that if you kill one of them, five more will take its place. Ricked Wicky is the newest manifestation of Uncle Bob, and while it seems like a typically unthinkin...view item »
