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.

Robert Pollard - Standard Gargoyle Decisions & Coast To Coast Carpet Of Love Covers Revealed!

Merge Records, Robert Pollard's current label, recently released an advance/promo CD (for radio stations, reviewers, etc.) of both upcoming (October 9th- mark yr calendars) solo records, Standard Gargoyle Decisions and Coast To Coast Carpet Of Love. Though loyal readers of the Pop Zeus blog already were familiar with the tracklist for both albums (listed above), what is new to everyone is the front cover art below!

The black and white photo of Bob will be the cover to the more pop and creamy Coast To Coast Carpet Of Love (text will be added to the photograph). The colorful collage, already familiar to readers of EAT 3 as a bumper sticker, will be the wrap-around textless cover to the weirder and more prog Standard Gargoyle Decisions. It appears that Bob changed his mind and will not be using the collage from EAT 3 labelled as the cover for Standard Gargoyle Decisions. I honestly like the new one better, so its a choice I stand behind! Click on the images for a closer look...
