Hold On Hope

One who grows accustomed to certain victory dealing devastating defeat comes to appreciate the fist held high anthem of hope. Robert Pollard’s work with Guided By Voices and beyond is an almost endless supply of such succoring songs for seething souls.

To honor the release of Bob’s two newest solo records (Lightning Head to Coffeepot by The Moping Swans and Five by Circus Devils) I present:

Five Fading Captain Songs That Keep Me From Giving Up

1. “I Drove A Tank” from Choreographed Man of War by Robert Pollard and His Soft Rock Renegades

2. “Alone, Stinking and Unafraid” from Ask Them by Lexo and the Leapers

3. “Snatch Candy” from Kid Marine by Robert Pollard

4. “Dig Through My Window” from The Pipe Dreams of Instant Prince Whippet by Guided By Voices
