Guided By Voices: Mag Earwhig! (Matador)

Don Waller, L.A. Weekly, 19 June 1997

GUIDED BY Voices leader Bob Pollard is either an authentic American eccentric genius or the toppermost underachiever in pop music. Married, with two kids and nearing 40, Pollard is a Bud-guzzling former fourth-grade teacher who unleashed records from his Dayton, Ohio, home for eight years before scoring his alt-rock "breakthrough" with Bee Thousand in 1994.
