How Do You Spell GBV: Guided By Voices Tribute Record (Free Download)


The Self-Inflicted Aural Nostalgia: Guided By Voices podcast was a highlight of 2018. The podcast took an in-depth look at every GBV studio record plus featured discussions with the band’s current engineer, a director of their videos, the author of the new Robert Pollard biography Matthew Cutter and two guys who signed the band in the nineties.

As a giant bonus the podcast is now offering a free Guided By Voices tribute record called How Do You Spell GBV. Except instead of getting bands to just cover GBV’s songs, twenty-seven bands from around the world wrote ORIGINAL songs about the band, Robert Pollard and Dayton, Ohio. Most groups have their own local following but several have been featured by The Fire Note in the past such as Graham Repulski, Smug Brothers, The Kyle Sowashes and No Museums.

The podcasts are fascinating listens and this 27-track comp contains plenty of gems. You can find the album to download HERE and the podcasts at the Every GBV LP website HERE.

Fire Note Says: The revamped Guided By Voices continue their hot streak with an instant classic.

Album Review: You can be forgiven for missing some of Robert Pollard’s output – the discography is indeed deep and daunting. That said, let me put this right out front: there are no excuses for skipping this one. Technically, this is the twenty-fourth GbV album (not including compilations like King Shit And The Golden Boys, the fan club release Tonics And Twisted Chasers or box sets, “best of’s” and live albums.) There’s a lot to sift through. As has been much-publicized, this is Pollard’s 101st album overall. You would think he’s said everything he needs to say by this point in his long and storied career but the hits keep coming! And if you’re a regular reader of The Fire Note you, no doubt, have a good percentage of those 101 records. You would also know that this version of the band includes Doug Gillard and Bobby Bare Jr on guitars, Mark Shue on bass and Kevin March behind the kit. It’s a dream line-up and they live up to that characterization by delivering the most straight-forward GbV record since Sandbox. It is also one of their best.

If you stare at any Guided By Voices album long enough the secrets of the universe reveal themselves. This is a known fact. What is also true is that Pollard likes to begin his records with a barn burner and How Do You Spell Heaven is no different. “The Birthday Democrats” ranks right up there with “A Salty Salute” or “Teenage FBI” as perfect opening tracks. A basic, two note riff announces that this outing is a rock and roll record – pure and simple. Pollard’s voice remains in fine shape as he hits the higher notes without the pitchiness which has crept in on some of his recent work. The band sounds engaged and very energetic. That was easy to manifest on GbV’s last album, August By Cake, as all five members contributed songs and lead vocals. Not so this time. All the tracks here, minus Gillard’s “Pearly Gates Smoke Machine,” were penned by Pollard giving Heaven a more unified feel. There are rockers aplenty: “Paper Cutz” and “Diver Dan” immediately spring to mind. But what really separates this album from all of GbV’s post-reunion records is the absence of throwaway tracks. There is no filler, no song sketches – just 15 really cool tunes. Like all things Pollard, there are little surprises thrown into the blender. Clocking in at four minutes (by far the longest track) “Pearly Gates Smoke Machine” is an instrumental T-Rex kind of jam. The classic rock bug is never far from the surface on this album and that song drives home the point with elegance. There’s nothing quite like it among the 17 million songs Pollard has written. Being Guided By Voices, there’s so much more to discover though. From the jangly power pop of “Nothing Gets You Real” to the lounge-jazz of “King 007” Pollard and his cohorts have distilled everything that made August By Cake such a thrill ride into a single, easily digestible disc.


It is, of course, getting harder to distinguish between Pollard and his solo albums and side projects. To whit: last year’s Please Be Honest was Pollard singing and playing all the instruments himself. But that was before this variant of the band came into being. In the ever-changing world of Guided By Voices, it is entirely possible that this rendition won’t last long. And that would be a pity. Gillard has always been a terrific foil to Uncle Bob – rivaled only by Tobin Sprout in importance and gravitas. His guitar hero chops have always aligned beautifully with Pollard’s vision of marrying Cheap Trick style Midwest American rock to The Who’s British Invasion bombast. There’s just no telling where GbV’s heading next. The decision to revive the name plate in 2012 seemed odd at the time. But after nine (good to great) albums in five years, perhaps he knew full well that his muse shines brightest with those three magical words on the album cover – beckoning the curious and the converted alike. Guided. By. Voices. Just don’t gaze too long at the magical orb. The secrets of the universe can really weigh you down if you’re not careful. And lighten your wallet at the same time!

Fire Note Says: Robert Pollard’s 100th album is also one of his best.

Album Review: Releasing a shit ton of music is in Robert Pollard’s DNA. Even Captain Obvious knows this. And no, he does not hold any kind of record for most songs written or albums released (see R. Stevie Moore or Buckethead for that) but unlike those prolific artists, Pollard’s output has remained consistently interesting and, dare I say, relevant. At a time where music is as disposable as a streaming playlist, it is comforting to know that Guided By Voices is still a functioning entity. And for as much as people complain about the rate at which Pollard drops new music upon the world there’s this: with pre-recorded music sales at historic lows, the Pollard business model is the envy of every artist out there. As is his work ethic. Platitudes aside, the re-imagining of Guided By Voices is certainly not a new phenomenon and with this latest release (Pollard’s 100th album overall) the newest version of the band feels organic, energized and, shockingly enough, democratic.

One could look upon this configuration of GbV as an off-shoot of Pollard’s last side project, ESP Ohio, but as the first Guided By Voices record with Doug Gillard since Half Smiles Of The Decomposed it is that era of the band that August By Cake more often evokes. Being their first double album, it is clear that the wizard of Northridge is making a statement here. His ambitions are happily met by a hungry and raucous band that now also includes Bobby Bare, Jr. on guitar and Mark Shue on bass and drummer Kevin March makes his fifth appearance on a GbV album. With a thirty-two-song album to fill, Pollard wisely uses all four of his cohorts to contribute their songwriting and vocal talents. In fact, many of this sprawling set’s finest moments come from them. Both of Gillard’s songs are first rate. “Good-bye Note” hits early and hard in the track listing and the progressive-leaning “Project/Deflect” is a stand out. March also delivers two winners including the power pop brilliance of “Overloaded” and Bobby Bare, Jr.’s “High Five Hall Of Famers” might just be the best song on the album. Not to be left out, Mark Shue pens three of ABC’s thirty-two songs. All of this is a little unsettling at first. Besides Tobin Sprout, no one but Pollard has ever sung on a Guided By Voices album but their inclusion here, nestled among some excellent Pollard tunes, makes for a gripping and entirely enjoyable listen. The expanded canvas size actually works in much the same way Minutemen benefitted from it on Double Nickels On The Dime. More isn’t always better but when it is…it’s awesome.


Robert Pollard did not exactly mail it in either, folks. August By Cake is littered with new instant classics like “Amusement Park Is Over” and “Warm Up To Religion” (which is to be expected) but the sheer volume of great songs combined with the fact that there is very little fat on the bone here leads me to believe that there’s something going on with this Guided By Voices. Something special. There’s a sense of effortless joy at play throughout. A sense that maybe, just maybe, the restless muse of Pollard has found its perfect expression. He told this reviewer last month that he felt this was the best band he’s ever had. Those are pretty strong words and hyperbole often accompanies any artists’ latest work but it now makes sense. He was being honest. This is what has always drawn people into his universe – honesty. We don’t need to understand what the hell it all means – as long as it sounds good really loud. With a highly-motivated Pollard at the helm, GbV head for the desert and a date at Coachella later this month. Lost in a sea of Hip Hop and EDM acts, who else should send the clarion call to arms? Yes, perhaps we all live vicariously via Pollard’s rock and roll dreams and with August By Cake we have all been given a reminder that guitar rock is not dead. Thank you, Uncle Bob, and keep fighting the good fight!

Circus Devils: Laughs Best (The Kids Eat It Up) [Album Review]

Laughs Best (The Kids Eat It Up): Best of Circus Devils
Happy Jack Rock Records [2017]



fire-note-headphone-approved






Fire Note Says: Circus Devils are sent off in fine fashion with this career-spanning double-LP compilation

Album Review: Circus Devils has never been for the casual Robert Pollard fan. The “band,” comprising Pollard and brothers Todd and Tim Tobias, is as unpredictable as they are downright weird: what you find on one album is no indication of how the next will sound—or any in their fourteen-album discography, for that matter. The band has explored crunchy heavy metal rock operas, spaghetti western-inspired song cycles, studio experimentation, progressive rock excursions, moody ambient soundscapes, and straight-up power pop (albeit with bizarre, surrealist lyrics). So how does one begin to put together a “greatest hits” for a band that purposefully steers clear of commercial considerations?

While such a problem might stump even the most rabid Circus Devils fan, Pollard’s sequencing talent is the key. Not only do albums from his other projects like Motivational Jumpsuit, From A Compound Eye, and Let It Beard demonstrate his knack for ordering tracks in a way that is both satisfying and revealing, his other compilations—both official and unofficial, of his own and others’ material—are often definitive, even when they avoid obvious choices. The same is true of Laughs Best: Pollard often cherry-picks one or two obscure tracks from fan-favorite albums, resurrecting gems like “Locomotion Blue Note” (My Mind Has Seen The White Trick) and “Correcto” (Ringworm Interiors) and surrounding them with complementary tracks that bring them into sharper focus. Another surprising aspect of the track selection is its apparent imbalance: rather than taking two or three tracks from every album, some albums are (surprisingly) underrepresented with a single track (debut Ringworm Interiors, fan-favorite The Harold Pig Memorial, Five, Mother Skinny, and simultaneous releases When Machines Attack and My Mind Has Seen The White Trick). Others have as many as four or five, which makes sense for double-album Sgt. Disco, but less so for Ataxia and outlier Gringo. At three tracks, the new (and final) Circus Devils album Laughs Last gets more representation than most of the band’s other records.

Such an imbalance might not seem to work on paper, but once you throw the album(s) on your turntable, you don’t even notice—Laughs Best isn’t all of the best Circus Devils music, but it’s a fantastic and fascinating cross-section. Its thirty tracks make clear how well Pollard’s vocal and lyrical abilities fit the Tobias brothers’ musical sensibilities, and its sixteen-year span (which rivals the initial run of GBV) makes a good argument for the band’s importance in Pollard’s overall body of work. Long-time fans will appreciate some of the left-field song choices and expert sequencing, but as all good compilations should be it’s also a great entry point into the intimidating Circus Devils catalogue. While we wish there were more albums on the way, Laughs Best is a fine way to say goodbye. Circus Devils is real! Long live Circus Devils!

Fire Note Says: Circus Devils bow out with grace after a 16-year run.

Album Review: For sixteen years, Bob Pollard from Guided By Voices and the Tobias brothers have collaborated to form the Circus Devils. Laughs Last is their official final release as a band. The record doesn’t start off great. The first few tracks click by with a heavy tossed off feeling, discouraged by the sheer weight of all the songs which Bob Pollard has penned.

But thankfully, that feeling changes after the first few songs. “I do the Nixon” is where the album starts to turn around. There is not a more diverse collection of music from Pollard that you will find because Laughs Last runs the full gamut of plaintive crooning over a full studio treatment, to scratchy seemingly tossed off lyrics, with the occasional bouts of clarity. “To Each His Zone” has a twangy refrain where the tune comes into focus and even after all these years, they can still surprise the listener. The Tobias’ brother’s presence acts as a solid foundation for Pollard to croon forward, often with an elegiac tone, so it feels like the funeral that this final release is supposed to be. “Farn Action,” has a ridiculous set of lyrics that is mismatched by the arrangement and feels like a step back.

It’s a shame that Circus Devils were always going to play second fiddle to Guided by Voices, but such is the case when an artist like Pollard has so many side projects and we have so little time to take them all in.

It is a relief that the Circus Devils chose this final outing to really show us what has been up their sleeve for all these years. On the closer “Asteroid”, you will find a warm bed of synthesizers that acts as a base for Pollard’s voice which rises up like the night sky being viewed from space. “The lights are burning out behind and ahead of me. Dead cell material dissolving. Fitting dreams of mass destruction.” It’s a fitting farewell.

Fire Note Says: Tobin Sprout’s first album in seven years is wistful, poignant and brings the rock.

Album Review: Tobin Sprout returns with his first solo record since 2010’s The Bluebirds of Happiness Tried to Land on My Shoulder. The Universe and Me is a real treasure and was well worth the wait. It seems Toby is still in that same creative groove that gave us some of the best moments on the six-reformed classic lineup Guided by Voices albums.

The Universe and Me runs the gamut of what you would want in a Tobin Sprout record. There are the crunchy power pop tracks (“Future Boy Today/Man Of Tomorrow”, “A Walk Across The Human Bridge”,” Just One Kid”), the bright, nostalgic trips (“Manifest Street,” “Heavenly Bones,” “When I Was A Boy”) and the poignant heavy hitters that can wring a tear from your eyes and put a lump in your throat (“Cowboy Curtains,” “I Fall You Fall,” “Future Boy (Reprise)”). This album is a showcase of some exceptional songwriting and excellent production.

Wonderful tracks aside, The Universe and Me sequencing does its part to make this album so accessible. There is an enjoyable balance between the rockers, the mid-tempo piano-driven pop, and the heart-wrenching melancholy. Toby can wrest an emotion from a listener with a simple piano chord and breathed lyric. Halfway through the album he employs both those tactics to hit you square in the feelings with “Cowboy Curtains.” I do not think I have ever heard Toby sound more soulful and anguished. A perfect moment on a perfect album.


I have been a Tobin Sprout fan for quite some time and cherish his contributions to making GBV albums that much more special. His solo work also holds a special spot in my music collection, especially his first two solo LPs. I would place The Universe and Me right alongside of Carnival Boy and Moonflower Plastic as some of the best work Toby has done as a solo artist. It is that good.

We are just a few weeks into the new year and this record is a serious contender for Album of the Year. 2017 promises to be a great year (music-wise) with so many of my favorite artists releasing new material (GBV, Circus Devils, Breeders, The Wrens, Astral Swans, Grandaddy, and Flotation Toy Warning). Tobin Sprout has done his part by giving us the first great album of 2017. He is truly one of America’s great songwriters. He has created a real stunner in The Universe and Me.

Today’s Black Friday Fire Track, “Future Boy/Man Of Tomorrow,” is the first single from his upcoming album The Universe & Me and was originally being saved for GBV. You will instantly hear why with its imperfect hum. You overlay Sprout’s youthful vocals and you have a sing along winner!

ESP Ohio: Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean [Album Review]

Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean
GBV, Inc. [2016]



fire-note-headphone-approved




Fire Note Says: With three members of the current Guided By Voices line-up, ESP Ohio offers many rewards.

Album Review: When news broke that Doug Gillard was rejoining Guided By Voices earlier this year (after ten years in the wilderness of playing with Nada Surf) many fans of the post classic era GbV (myself included) had visions of Do The Collapse or Isolation Drills running through their heads. Yes, there’s always been a special magic between GbV main man Robert Pollard and Doug Gillard. From the six (excellent) Guided By Voices albums they did together, to the fabulous Speak Kindly Of Your Volunteer Fire Department LP and the two gravely underappreciated albums done under the Lifeguards moniker, Pollard and Gillard as a team have yet to disappoint. Now we get a brand-new side project that also brings in current GbV bass player Mark Shue and Lifeguards producer Travis Harrison on drums. ESP Ohio certainly sounds great in theory but how does the debut record fare in actuality? Given the above rating, not too badly at all.

From the perspective of Pollard’s last couple releases (a solo album, Please Be Honest, marketed as a Guided By Voices album and another with the recently departed GbV guitarist Nick Mitchell, Of Course You Are, assuming the role Todd Tobias has played on the last twelve or so Pollard records, i.e. – playing all the instruments) Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean feels a whole lot more like a band effort. The first single, quasi-title track “Royal Cyclopean”, rocks like a Ricked Wicky tune but the horns give it more depth and a unique place among Pollard songs. It was with this first-look track that my expectations soared. The second song released was “Lithuanian Bombshells” and though a solid melody runs through it, there’s nothing really new going on here. So, my hopes were brought back down to Earth. Happily, I can report, however, that of the sixteen songs not a single one is filler. They’re all worthy.

esp-ohio-pic
The first great song to be found on the album is “Miss Hospital ’93.” I’ve always been a sucker for the janglier side of Pollard’s songwriting and the combination of cool backing vocals along with Dennis Cronin’s horns, this one is a stand out. Some of the “lesser” songs attempt a gritter blues rock vibe akin to “Hot Freaks” but the album’s highlights all tend to veer into artier directions. “Weakened By A Logical Mind” boasts one of the better hooks Pollard’s written in a while and “This Violent Side” gives off some Strokes-like swagger for all of its 93 seconds. There are riff rockers (“You The Earthman” and “Grand Beach Finale”), weirdo Pollard freak outs (“Sleeping Through The Noise”) and just about every other dark alley GbV fans have come to expect over the years but nothing feels forced and there’s no looking for the skip button with this one.

One of my biggest complaints about the post reunion Guided By Voices records was a sense that Pollard was intentionally making a mess of things – trying to artificially recreate those heady lo-fi days of yore. Everyone knows you can’t ride the school bus again, right? As with Boston Spaceships or Ricked Wicky (two of Pollard’s best side bands) ESP Ohio works because it’s being allowed the freedom to be whatever it wants to be. The songs move to their own internal compass. And the band sounds energized and tight as hell. Travis Harrison, in particular, should be mentioned here. His drumming fits Uncle Bob’s songs to a tee. In summation: buy this. I know it’s hard keeping up with an artist this prolific but every so often Pollard still releases something indespensible. This is it.

The Friday Fire Track: ESP Ohio – “Royal Cyclopean”

esp-ohio-pic
If you are a Robert Pollard fan then your mind blew when you heard the news about ESP Ohio. The new Pollard project reunites him with guitarist Doug Gillard (Nada Surf, Guided By Voices) which has historically yielded some great indie pop moments. ESP Ohio also adds current GBV bassist Mark Shue (Beech Creeps) and drummer Travis Harrison (Lifeguards producer) to round out the party.

The full length, Starting Point Of The Royal Cyclopean, is due out November 18th via Rockathon Records which is just around the corner. That means it is time to start cranking this project up with today’s Friday Fire Track, “Royal Cyclopean.”

I will warn you right away that the opening horns (yes horns) in this song will permanently lock into your head. You also get the clever wordplay from Pollard like “At the starting point / of the royal cyclopean / is the Maltese custard / is the Chinese mustard.” Really? What more could you want for your Friday!

“Royal Cyclopean” is big pop, grinding rock and fun for all the kids in the club. Play it now and play it loud!
