Guided by Voices, Pixies to Release Live DVDs
By the magic of Digital Video Disc technology, one much beloved band will say goodbye and another hello (again) with a couple of upcoming DVD releases.
Guided by Voices are the boys saying farewell on film, announcing today that the band will release an as-yet untitled live concert recording of their final:( show. Held on New Year’s Eve 2004 at the
Cabaret Metro in Chicago, the heavy drinkin’ Dayton, Ohio, rockers went out with a bang, performing a massive and career-spanning 60-song:smash: set. The concert included appearances by ex-GBV members Tobin Sprout, James Greer, Don Thrasher, Jim MacPherson(ex-The Breeders:) ), and Greg Demos:cool: , as well as turns by GBV associates Jon Wurster (Superchunk) and Matt Sweeney (Chavez).
Luckily, ’twas all captured on film and you will be able to own this sure-to-be riotous show forever when it is released by Plexifilm on November 15th.
Meanwhile, on the comin’ back tip, the Pixies have announced that they, too, will soon release a live DVD. Entitled The Pixies Sell Out, the DVD will feature a 28-song performance recorded in July 2004 at a gig in Belfort, France, including two versions each of “Bone Machine” and “Wave of Mutilation” among all the other Pixies classics that you crave.
A full 16 bonus performances will also be included as extras, most culled from festival appearances at Coachella, T in the Park, and the Fuji Rock Festival last year. The seemingly never-ending Pixies reunion continues in the UK, with new Pixies material a tantalizing possibility for the near future.

Pollard's Plans: Two Solo Albums, Tour
Jonathan Cohen, N.Y.
Having recently signed a solo deal with Merge that will be inaugurated with the Jan. 26 release of "From a Compound Eye," former Guided By Voices frontman Robert Pollard has already recorded its follow-up, tentatively dubbed "Normal Happiness." That set is expected in October.
"I have actually fulfilled my contract with Merge already," Pollard tells Billboard.com with a laugh from his Dayton, Ohio, home base. Actually, the 26-track "From a Compound Eye" has been finished since 2004, and while assembling music earlier this year for the Steven Soderbergh film "Bubble," Pollard got the itch to record the songs Soderbergh didn't opt to include.
"It's a pop album," Pollard says of "Normal Happiness." "It has 16 two-minute pop songs. I wanted to make a record like that." One track confirmed to appear is a newly fleshed out version of "Boxing About," which appeared as an instrumental on the recent "Bubble" EP.
Having spent most of the year catching up on lost time in Dayton in the wake of Guided By Voices' final show last New Years Eve, Pollard admits he can't wait to get back on the road. His first post-GBV solo tour will begin in late January, and will find him backed by guitarist Tommy Keene and Superchunk drummer Jon Wurster, along with a bassist and another guitarist to be announced.
"I don't think it will be much different than a Guided By Voices show," Pollard says. "I don't know how else to do it. It's not going to be me sitting at the piano with a spotlight on me. I'll get drunk, come out and stumble around!"
CM8ShowAd("Middle");Pollard has not ruled out performing GBV material during the shows. "First of all, there are 26 songs on 'From a Compound Eye,' and we're going to do 22 or 23 of them," he says. "That's a big chunk of the show. I'll do a few songs from some of my EPs, two or three from the [side project] Moping Swans, and there's a Circus Devils song I want to do. I may do eight or nine songs from old Robert Pollard albums, and maybe a GBV song or two in the regular set. Then, maybe an entire Guided By Voices encore."
The artist plans to hit the road a little less hard than in GBV's heyday, predicting that he will "stick to the states and just hit the big cities. It will be more of an every other weekend thing, like three shows, for probably three months or so, to make it as painless as possible."
In May, Pollard is planning two releases on his own Fading Captain Series imprint: the debut album from the Takeovers, which features him in collaboration with late-era GBV bassist Chris Slusarenko, and an album with Keene under the moniker the Keene Brothers.
"Tommy will send me the music and I will do the vocals," Pollard says. "It's funny because he told me that when he was a kid, he was in a band with his brother called the Keene Brothers, and his brother's name is also Bob!"
As previously reported (http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001305793), Pollard will be on hand for three book signings next week in Dayton, Chicago and New York to celebrate the release of the GBV biography "A Brief History -- Twenty-one Years of Hunting Accidents in the Forests of Rock and Roll," released this week by Grove/Atlantic. A DVD of GBV's final show, "The Electrifying Conclusion (http://www.billboard.com/bb/daily/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1001050436)," is due Nov. 15 via Plexfilm.

El DVD salio HOY!!! Tambien anda por ahi la biografia de la banda escrita por el ex-integrante Jim Greer. Greer's celebration of Guided by Voices (and, therefore, of all things Robert Pollard) is an admirer's sincere, cocoonish labor of love, committed to telling how Pollard/GBV "came to be considered by some one of the truly great artists of our time." The keenness of Greer's interest ensures a detailed retelling of GBV history, from its start as a Dayton, Ohio, garage band (Pollard was then a fourth-grade teacher). Musicians have come and gone, but besides inspiring an impressive list of other acts, GBV has endured as one of the longest-running nineties indie-rock aggregations. Mainstream acceptance has been elusive, but reading Greer makes one think that overwhelming success could destroy the band's particular appeal. Of course, not a lot of discouraging words appear here, but those interested in maverick performers who fashion careers by persevering at rootsy, highly idiosyncratic music may consider the Pollard/GBV story hard to beat, especially when told as enthusiastically as Greer tells it.

Guided by Voices was one of the most popular indie-rock bands of the 1990s. Critics internationally have lauded the band’s brain trust, Robert Pollard, as a once-in-a-generation artist. Pollard has been compared by The New York Times to Mozart, Rossini, and Paul McCartney (in the same sentence) and everyone from P. J. Harvey, Radiohead, R.E.M., the Strokes, and U2 has sung his praises and cited his music as an influence. But it all started rather prosaically when Pollard, a fourth-grade teacher in his early thirties from Dayton, Ohio, began recording songs with drinking buddies in his basement. James Greer, an acclaimed music writer and former Spin editor, enjoys a unique advantage in having played in the band for two years. This personal connection grants him unparalleled insight and complete access to the workings of Pollard’s muse.
