Graham Lineham has written a lovely little fanpiece about Dayton's Guided by Voices.
I fell in love with GbV early in their career after seeing them live at Canal Street Tavern just after the release of their first album, "Forever Since Breakfast." I probably wouldn't have even gone to the show had it not been for my friend and fellow DJ Don Thrasher, who insisted I go because he knew I'd love them.
And I did. I bought the album from Bob after the show, kicking off a seriously wallet-depleting habit that continues to this day. Thanks a lot, Don. ;)
And I continue to love them, and love everything that Bob Pollard touches, because he's brilliant.
