- Gringo by Circus Devils
8/10 Penrith Steve 16th February 2015
Not content with his extremely prolific career with Guided By Voices or his similarly prolific solo career, Robert Pollard has released twelve albums with Circus Devils. The group are a three-piece and Pollard is joined by Todd and Tim Tobias. "Gringo" is their seventh album and, other than Pollard's distinctive voice, is mostly different to Guided By Voices. Their sound is more experimental and doesn't take us to indie-rock heaven quite as readily as Guided By Voices tend to, it is nevertheless very good. There are songs on here that are a million miles away from Guided By Voices such as "Monkey Head", whereas the brief and melodic "Easy Baby" is similar. "Every Moment Flame On" and "Ship From Prison To Prison" seem to fall between the disparate styles - musically very different but Robert Pollard's melodies are reminiscent of some of his Guided By Voices work.
