Guitarist - UK

Guided By Voices
Earthquake Glue
Matador Records

The lo-fi tag may not apply any more but the ramshackle charm remains as GBV deliver their 15th album. With the quality control dial set higher than ever Earthquake Glue bulges with muscular guitar pop, yet its commercial potential is often scuppered by main main Robert Pollard's abstract lyrics and awkward phrasing. After all these years, you suspect he wouldn't have it any other way.
