Description

Led by indefatigable singer and songwriter Robert Pollard, GBV are one of the most important rock groups of the past thirty years. After toiling for a decade in obscurity, they broke onto the scene in the early '90s by delivering generation- and genre-defining records such as 1994’s Bee Thousand and 1995’s Alien Lanes.

Pollard and a rotating cast of musicians have kept at it ever since, releasing LP after LP of stadium-worthy rock’n’roll. Zeppelin Over Dayton: Guided By Voices Album By Album is the first serious and comprehensive look at the band’s work. Based on the popular GBV podcast Self-Inflicted Aural Nostalgia, it takes an in-depth look at each one of the group’s records, looking at who was in the band at the time and how the LP fits into the band’s discography, and providing commentary and analysis of every song.

Drawing on new interviews and extensive research, Zeppelin Over Dayton offers an honest and thorough assessment of GBV’s amazingly sprawling discography, providing ardent admirers with tons of fresh anecdotes and insight, and new fans a way to successfully navigate the group’s dozens of LPs.
