Boston Spaceships - Zero To 99 - CD
2009 release from this outfit led by former Guided By Voices main man Robert Pollard, one of the most prolific artists in Rock music. Boston Spaceships' Zero to 99 is quintessential Pollard, a record that holds it's own alongside widely acknowledged classics like Guided By Voices' Bee Thousand, Alien Lanes, and Under the Bushes Under the Stars. One gets the sense that Pollard is having the most fun he's had in decades, before he was pulled reluctantly from obscurity and thrust into the limelight with GBV in those heady, post-Nirvana mid-1990s. The Boston Spaceships have not only landed; they're conquering the goddamn planet.
