First Time On Vinyl!

Originally recorded on November 9, 2004, this Austin City Limits was one of Guided By Voices' last performances, now available in its entirety on 180g 2LP!

"Twenty-plus years...two dozen albums...twice that many bandmates...the mad genius that is Robert Pollard finally decided it was time to bring down the curtain on one of indie rock's most innovative and, well, outrageous live bands. Certainly nobody could accuse Guided By Voices of being too tame, too mainstream, too predictable. Ever since Pollard created the "gang" in Ohio in the early 1980's with the help of his brother Jimmy and Pete Jamison (with the help of a loan to pay for the first few records), "lo-fi" may be the best descriptor for their brand of bursting, raw, no-holds-barred shout-out songs.

The end came in 2004, after the release of their final, critically acllaimed Half Smiles Of The Decomposed, and this Austin City Limits recorded on November 9, 2004 was one of their last performances. "I love the guys in the band, but I'm getting too old to be a gang leader," Pollard said, who's now focusing on his solo work.

And what a finale it was. Much of it couldn't, wouldn't ever be broadcast on television - public or otherwise - but it's all here for GBV fans to savor forever. Pollard was in rare form, with buckets of beer literally and liberally decorating the stage. He always wanted to end the band's decades of music on a high note. And this is it!"
- Terry Lickona (Producer Austin City Limits)

"Those familiar with the band, and their live recordings, will no doubt find the set to be on par with many a GBV show - both sloppy and inspired, and usually at the exact same time." - Aquarium Drunkard

"All that frustrates and entrances about GBV is present on this double-disc set recorded for Austin City Limits...this has the feeling of a grestest hits package." - Exclaim!
