Pollard is Shaking Things Up

We knew it was coming but it is here: Robert Pollard has, for now, decided to quit touring and performing live. Instead he is focusing on continuing his prodigious recorded output. According to Billboard and Pitchfork, Pollard has seven new releases lined up for 2007 including releases on Merge, Fading Captain, and his new label Record Company Records. Apparently, Fading Captain will be retired with it’s 50th release, a best-of from the label’s output. Record Company Records will take over releasing the former GBV-leaders eclectic side projects. Read more at and Pitchfork.

Here is what my iPod is playing:

1. "Better Save Yourself" by Chris Bell
2. "Wild America" by Iggy Pop
3. "Still Wishing To Course" by Camper Van Beethoven
4. "Bitter-Sweet" by The Venus In Furs
5. "All Together Now" by the Beatles
6. "To Defy the Laws of Tradition" by Primus
7. "Lucky Day" by Tom Waits
8. "You Drive Me Ape (You Big Gorilla)" by the Dickies
9. "Crazy Feeling" by Lou Reed
10. "She’s Always In My Hair" by Prince
