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.

Guided By Voices Midi Masterpieces

Over the years, phone toting Guided By Voices fans have wondered when and if there will ever be midi ringtones that rock. Their wait is over. Tristram Shandy, longtime Disarm The Setters poster, took it upon himself to learn how to create midi music. And he has since been transcribing and composing Guided By Voices midi masterpieces for all to share and enjoy! You will be the envy of all your friends the next time you get a call and a Geebs tune blasts out of your celly. And there are currently over 45 to choose from! Some of my favorites so far have been...

Underground Initiations

Back To The Lake

Do Something Real

My Valuable Hunting Knife

Blimps Go 90

Edisons Memos

But they are all brilliant. And hearing these songs in a stripped-down way renews my appreciation for the inherent musicality and melody in Bob Pollard's music. Thanks and cheers Tristram!
