Guided By Voices - Half Smiles of the Decomposed (2004)
The final Matador album from legendary geniuses Guided By Voices, which at the time was set to be their last ever.
After twenty-odd years, twenty-odd line- ups, and twenty-odd albums, EPs, singles, triples, stolen bases, misdemeanor convictions, and broken hearts, Dayton, OH’s fortunate sons took a leave of absence only to reemerge in 2010 at a certain label’s 21st birthday celebrations in Las Vegas.
Back in print for the first time since 2008, this translucent edition limited to 1,700 marks the first time Half Smiles has been pressed onto coloured vinyl.
