i know a lot has already been said about Guided By Voices...but dammit, i've been listening to them a lot lately, and as we've all concurred, that's what this blog is all about. DIG.
To me, they're really the kings of lo-fi and I have a lot of respect for Bob Pollard's work ethic, not to mention his songwriting is top-notch. Generally, I think lyrics are stooopid (holla, DC!!) but I really dig GBV's lyrics. I missed these guys the first time around in the mid-'90s, I was caught up with Nirvana/Soundgarden/Primus/Rage Against The Machine/RHCP et al.
I guess everyone knows about "Bee Thousand" already.
I've also been checking out
"Devil Between My Toes"
"Under The Bushes, Under The Stairs"
All of em are damn fine lo-fi rock recordings.
