Chronicling the creative process for Pop Zeus, the forthcoming Guided By Voices/Bob Pollard tribute comic- including sketches, concepts, finished art and whatever else is in my brain at the moment.

The Breeders - Shocker In Gloomtown Video

Friday equals time to rock! Don't normally post videos of other bands covering Guided By Voices' songs (there are many to choose from). But there are several obvious reasons to make an exception in this case!

In 1994, fellow-Dayonites The Breeders admirably covered GBV's Shocker In Gloomtown for a limited edition 10" single called Head To Toe (which I managed to snag a copy of at the time). And the subsequent music video features various members of Guided By Voices peering through the windows of Kim Deal's garage as The Breeders play their song (love that concept). The idea of windows and reflections also ties in neatly with GBV's 1995 Motor Away music video. See if you can spot all the GBV members: Robert Pollard, Jim Pollard, Tobin Sprout, Kevin Fennell, Mitch Mitchell, and "Fretless" Dan Toohey. And little did we know that Breeders drummer Jim MacPherson would soon be a full fledged member of Guided By Voices!

Rock on kids and have a dandy weekend!
