Guided By Voices 'Where's Ric Ocasek' (live bootleg from 1994)
Published Dec 02, 2013Prolific indie rock icons Guided By Voices may be be gearing up for the release of their next LP, Motivational Jumpsuit, but fan site GBVDB.com is giving us a peak at some classic period Pollard and co. via a full concert download dating back to the mid-'90s.
The show in question was recorded at Cambridge, MA's Middle East venue on November 3, 1994, and has the Dayton lo-fi deities running through a number of highlights from Bee Thousand and the then to-be-released Alien Lanes. "My Valuable Hunting Knife," "Tractor Rape Chain," "A Salty Salute," "The Goldheart Mountaintop Queen Directory"... the list goes on, really.
Gold star to the fansite for uploading this fan-recorded live experience, captured by Michael Train "on a Sony D7 handheld DAT and a Sony external mic." You can download the files here.
As for the upcoming Motivational Jumpsuit, it arrives February 8 through Guided By Voices' own GBV Inc. imprint.
