Flat Beauty — by Robert Pollard

From his fist solo album — Not In My Airforce — 1996

Because Robert Pollard has amazing songs pouring out of him at all times he had to start doing solo albums… and create other bands and side projects too. 

This is a fucking great song!

158 Years Of Beautiful Sex — by Guided By Voices

From the album they released only for their fan-club — Tonics And Twisted Chasers — 1996

This is not the best song on this album, but I’ve always really liked it. I like how it chugs along restrained and minimal and then it suddenly explodes with electric guitar just in time to fade out…

If We Wait — by Guided By Voices

From the EP — Sunfish Holy Breakfast — 1996

I’m currently posting one Pollard song per Pollard album in chronological order. I’ve excluded several EP’s and singles sofar because I’ll be here forever if I don’t, but I’m including this track off this EP. Why? Well listen to it… That’s why.

Underwater Explosions — by Guided By Voices

From their ninth album — Under The Bushes Under The Stars — 1996

Game Of Pricks — by Guided By Voices

From their eighth album — Alien Lanes — 1995

My personal favorite GBV album. I love this album. It has some of my favorite songs. It’s also really cohesive, like each song was meant to fit together in just this way. The sum is greater than it’s parts… And many of the parts are great all on their own. This song is one.

Tractor Rape Chain — by Guided By Voices

From their seventh album — Bee Thousand — 1994

 This album is considered by many to be GBV’s best and is on many short lists of the best albums of the 90’s. 

This song is perfect. I want everyone to sing along at the top of our lungs. “Parallel lines on a slow decline. Tractor rape chain.”

Expecting Brainchild — by Guided By Voices

From their sixth album — Vampire On Titus —1993

I guess when a record label took an interest in GBV after they had broken up, Robert Pollard, quickly turned this album around without a full band. It’s messy, low-fi, dark, and cryptic, all in the best possible ways. Not the easiest GBV album but still a great one.

Now, Bob, would you & Living Praise Choir lead us in “To God Be The Glory?”
