After twenty-odd years, twenty-odd lineups, and twenty-odd albums, EPs, singles, triples, stolen bases, misdemeanor convictions, and broken hearts, Dayton, OH's fortunate sons Guided By Voices were to call it quits, and 2004's Half Smiles of the Decomposed was intended to be their swan song, a final album. They would eventually reunite in 2010 for Matador's 21st birthday celebrations in Las Vegas, but either way, Half Smiles of the Decomposed may well be the strongest set of music the band has ever released for public consumption, and featured Robert Pollard (vocals), Doug Gillard (guitar), Nate Farley (guitar), Chris Slusarenko (bass), and Kevin March (drums). GBV's final Matador album back in print for the first time since 2008 on colored vinyl LP as part of the Matador Revisionist History Catalog Campaign!
