Tonight's The Rodeo 7'' (2013)

Tonight's The Rodeo 7"
(2013, Guided by Voices Inc.)

To kick start the fanboy hype of his 2nd and final LP of 2013, Robert Pollard released the first of two singles (the other being a double A side release not reviewed on this site). Tonight's The Rodeo 7'' came out two months prior to the LP, containing the single on Side A and an exclusive b-side. Limited to 500, this 7'' was released on blue wax.

Tonight's The Rodeo- Same version as on Blazing Gentlemen. Read the review over there.

Astral City Slicker- An unreleased b-side, and a kick in the collector's pants. Essentially, this is the full version that contains a section from Pollard's song "Suit Minus the Middle" off of Honey Locust Honky Tonk from summer 2013. A clunky, mildly tone-deaf rocker. Auto-pilot rock for Pollard but far from disposable.
