BBC info about the set: Guided By Voices lead singer Robert Pollard has called his band ‘A pop band but a strange pop band’, and after listening to the catchy melodies and bizarre, unsettling lyrics you will realise this is true. Pollard seems to understand the power of a three-minute pop song. Likened to a cocktail of The Who mixed with The Beatles, early Genesis and a dash of punk, Guided By Voices are alternative rock heroes.A band that are often more talked about than actually heard, Guided By Voices give live performances that are spontaneous and stun the senses. Singing a collection of their songs to a crowd enjoying the festival madness at Reading ’99, this is another superb show from the Ohio-based indie rock legends.
