Tuesday Short Song

My friend Mark is a massive fan of Guided by Voices, a band I’ve never really got to grips with.

I think perhaps it’s the daunting amount of material there is to get acquainted with, for GBV are prolific if nothing else, having released 30 studio albums, 2 live albums, 12 compilation albums, 7 video albums, and 6 box sets since their debut back in 1987, and that’s before we’ve even got on to how many singles and EPs they’ve released in that time.
