Guided By Voices - Live from Austin, TX 2LPLabel: New West Records
Full recording of their November 9th, 2004 appearance.
Double 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. Twenty-plus years... two dozen albums... twice that many bandmates... The mad genius that is Robert Pollard finally decided it was time to bring down the curtain on one of indie rock's most innovative and, well, outrageous live bands. Certainly nobody could accuse Guided by Voices of being too tame, too mainstream, too predictable. Ever since Pollard created the "gang" in Ohio in the early 1980's with the help of his brother Jimmy and Pete Jamison (with the help of a loan to pay for the first few records), "lo-fi" may be the best descriptor for their brand of bursting, raw, no-holds-barred shout-out songs.
