The Electrifying Conclusion Guided By Voices

There are two guarantees for any GBV show: tons of songs and tons of booze. Luckily, this DIY document of GBV’s New Year’s Eve final stand in Chicago delivers both. Along with big white buckets labelled "puke” and "piss” and an onstage bartender, Bob Pollard and special guests are in their usual dicey form. Recommendations for true appreciation include having seen them live before and for at least one bottle of whisky to be consumed while viewing. Only then does it move beyond a four-hour document of drunken shambolic sing-alongs with the odd helping of pure pop brilliance. (Sonic Unyon)
