After breaking up Guided By Voices in 2004, Robert Pollard recently reunited the “classic” GBVline-up for a short tour. Tobin Sprout (guitar) Charles “Mitch” Mitchell (guitar), Greg Demos (bass) and Kevin Fennel (drums) will be joining Pollard on classic GBV songs from 1992-1996 from the albums Propeller, Bee Thousand, Alien Lanes and Under The Bushes, Under The Stars.
Since GBV’s breakup, their 1994 album Bee Thousand was heralded by Amazon.com at the top of their list (#1) of the “100 Greatest Indie Rock Albums Of All Time” and Spin magazine picked the record as #26 in the “Top Records of the Past 25 Years.”
“If Matador at 21 were a game, Guided by Voices would’ve won — they earned the most encores, the most fist pumping, the most singalongs, the most pushing against the stage and the most chanting of the whole weekend.” – L.A Times
“Guided By Voices capped the (Matador) weekend with an amazing high-energy set…” – Rolling Stone
“Pollard’s hooks have always ranked among rock’s best.” – Wall Street Jourmal
“Since late 2008 or so, Pollard has enjoyed a late-career renaissance, consistently rewarding those of us still paying attenion.” – Pitchfork
