“We ARE GBV!”

~ Robert Pollard on most people

Guided By Voices (or otherwise known as "GBV") is a lo-fi band based from the small big town of Dayton, Ohio. The band had one consistent band member, Robbie North, who was a 4th grade teacher in Ohio became the front-man of the group. He was fired from his teaching job after the principal found out that he was in a Rock N' Roll band.

Life[edit]

The Beginning[edit]

The group started when Robbie North and brother Jim North started rocking together in the basement of their own home. Before, Porn Teller, the band never held a single single that went to top charts. The first time happened was on Porn Teller. The single "Near the Sun/Flesh Shear Fox" hit number 16 on the Americana charts. They never had a set member list until the album Porn Teller came out and the band members that we know today are still together are no longer together. In 1994, Bee Hundred had hit stores and beyond sales to 16 trillion with the help of successor Jim North, who had quit the band. The greatness of the album eventually turned even better. the preceding album, Sandwich Change struck another Top 10 Album on Earth. Most of the songs on this album were under 1 minute and 12 seconds but that's what Robbie North wanted the album to sound like. All songs on this album blend from one to another. The next huge album didn't come out until 3 years after Sandwich Change. This next album, Use Your Lapse never got far but the one song that influenced people to listen to it was "N00bies CIA." No other album after that hit the Top 50 Charts in their years.

Break-up[edit]

In 2004, GBV eventually broke up. They wouldn't record another album until 2010, during this time North and Grow joined forces to become the Boston Marathons and North also had many solo projects including Don't Be My Bitch.

Reunion[edit]

By 2011, the band got back together to produce another album Time To Eat Your Wiener! and a song for that album "The Sinkable Fats Domino" was a hit playing on the Kimmy Wailing Show. On August 15, 2013, Kevin Fennell sold his drum kit (the same one he used on Bee Hundred) to a angry species of rare monkeys for $15,000 dollars.

Split Number 2[edit]

In November, the band notably Tobin grew old with the band and Robbie decided it was time to call quits and they did. Tobin and Robbie still played GBV songs after the band's spilt.

Reunion Number 3[edit]

Robbie re-formed the group in 2016 with Kevin II, Mark Shoe, Barefoot and Nick Mitchell. Nick left and was replaced by Doug "Lizard" Gillard in 2017. They released their 32nd album, September By Pie.
