Yesterday in History

Sorry for the belatedness, but I felt I had to acknowledge the 16th anniversary of the release of Guided By Voices’ Bee Thousand, one of my favorite rock albums of all time. Pitchfork has it at #10 in the Top 100 Albums of the ’90s, a tad low if you ask me. I may be slightly obsessed with GBV, but I think this album has something for just about everyone. “I am a Scientist!”

Thanks for posting this.  Somehow, I missed these guys.  I am Mr. Music, and yet only this morning, thanks to your post, have I enjoyed the album.  It sort of reminds me of Syd Barrett.  Very good!

PS:  They're a lot like the Velvet Underground, too.  OK, I'll stop comparing them.

Good start, Ethan, but you've only dimpled the armor. I dare you to go deeper!

Yay!  Guided By Voices!  I still love Bee Thousand.  Thanks for the reminder!  (I had the privilege of going on a beer run for them when they played a show at my college back in 1997. Memories!)

Do I have the right to drive to work without seeing dead fetuses?

Apparently not. Corner of First Street and First Avenue East. The fact is, I cannot get to the parking lot...
