Guided By Voices – The Pipe Dreams of Instant Prince Whippet

Guided By VoicesThe Pipe Dreams of Instant Prince Whippet [EP] (Recordhead Records)

Besides a uber-catchy title, what does this release have to offer you? Well, it depends. If you’ve been referred to as a Guided By Voices bitch (like me), you have another little nugget to throw into your massive GBV iTunes playlist. If you’re not a fan, this collection of rarities won’t win you over. If you like GBV but haven’t listened to much of their prolific output, you’re better off skipping this and picking any number of “classic” GBV albums (Bee Thousand, Alien Lanes, Mag Earwhig, Vampire On Titus, etc.) or more recent ones like Isolation Drills, or Universal Truths & Cycles. There are a few gems (including the title track) on this release, but mostly this EP is for the fanboys. Like me.
