    Guided By Voices Is Once Again Firing On All Cylinders
    Guided by Voices is an unlikely success story if ever there was one. Frontman Robert Pollard and his band of blue collar misfit friends from Dayton, Ohio recorded songs on a cassette four-track (a Tascam Portastudio, to be exact) in their basements and played shows to almost no one at local bars, for their own pleasure and free beer. It was a hobby — a very in-depth and time-consuming hobby, but a hobby nonetheless. And for about a decade, from 1983 until 1992, that's all it was. When 1992 arrived, Pollard was facing financial difficulties and family-pressures. He was prepared to put the band behind him, releasing one last album as his swan song, "Propeller," featuring what he considered to be some of his best work. Only 500 records were pressed, each with a one-of-a-kind handmade cover created by band members, family and friends (original copies now sell for thousands of dollars).
