Original Release Notes: Two 7" singles from KING HEAVY METAL, the forthcoming 2nd album by Ricked Wicky, the new project of Guided By Voices’ mastermind Robert Pollard, joined by GBV’s Kevin March (drums), long-time collaborator Todd Tobias (bass) and secret weapon, Nick Mitchell (guitar).

The A-sides are majestic and hook-filled - classic Pollard rock. The non-LP B-sides are written and sung by Mitchell. "Quite Worthy": power pop / glam rock / 70s AM radio fuel this harmony-laden nod to Joseph Campbell-esque advice to "Follow Your Bliss." "Dissonance" is baroque chamber pop, acoustic guitar and cellos, harkening to early Jeff Lynne / Roy Wood.
