Between 2012-2016 I recorded a batch of Guided By Voices covers. A lot of these were done as a tool to teach myself how to play drums, and doing covers is a great way to take a break from the usual writing and clear your head.

As far as GBV is concerned, they’ve been at the top of my list of bands I always return to. I followed them religiously from the second I first heard Alien Lanes in 1995. I haven’t kept up as fanatically as I have in the past but I know what I like and there’s a group of their albums I respect as much as a guy can.

These have now been lying in wait for a couple years as I wasn’t too sure if I’d let these out into the public, but you know me. Why not?
