GBV Database

Guided By Voices collage

The Guided By Voices Database has everything you need to know about the band’s discography, as well as the various side projects that Pollard and crew are involved with.

This site allows you to navigate & search the Guided By Voices discography and gigography. Information includes catalog numbers, scanned album images, track times, credits, vinyl color, pressing information, release dates, setlists, and gig ticket/poster images. Song details include the releases the song appears on and gigs where the track was played live.

I found a copy of the setlist from one of two back-to-back shows that I went to at the Horseshoe Tavern years ago. Both nights were epic, featuring three hour sets with double encore.

Mixtape madness

Muxtape, like mixtapes of yore, a good way to discover new music. Here’s mine, featuring a portion of one of my iTunes playlists. The current playlist:

  1. The National — 90-Mile Water Wall
  2. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club — Ain’t No Easy Way
  3. The Killers — When You Were Young
  4. MGMT — Time to Pretend
  5. Reverend and the Makers — Heavyweight Champion of the World
  6. Justice — D.A.N.C.E. (Mstrkrft Remix)
  7. Tiga — Louder Than A Bomb
  8. Kanye West — Stronger
  9. Hot Chip — Over And Over
  10. Tokyo Police Club — Nature of the Experiment
  11. Of Montreal — Gronlandic Edit
  12. Okkervil River — Our Life Is Not a Movie or Maybe

This would also be a good place to mention the mixes over at Yewknee, some of my favourites. Drop a comment if you’ve got one to listen to, I’m always up for discovering new music.
