Guided By Voices
Former schoolteacher Robert Pollard formed the band in the early '80s. Throughout the group's history, Pollard has been at the center, writing the majority of the songs and leading each incarnation of the band. Recording six self-released albums between 1986 and 1992, the Dayton, OH-based band attracted a handful of fans within the American indie-rock underground. With the 1994 release of Bee Thousand, the group became an unexpected alternative rock sensation, winning positive reviews throughout the mainstream music press and signing a larger distribution deal with Matador Records. The latest combination of GBV musicians seems to have fully internalized the unmedicated riff-genius of Robert Pollard's song writing, and they meet this material on the field of battle in full blues-wailing flight. Guided By Voices- Bob Pollard (Vocals), Doug Gillard (Guitar and backup vocals), Tim Tobias (Bass), Kevin March (Drums) and Nate Farley (Guitar and backup vocals) are pictured here on April 8th, 2003 at The State Theater in Minneapolis.
