End of an Era - A Salty Salute

I recently learned that Guided By Voices, one of my all-time favorite bands, is breaking up after their next\last album, which will come out in Aug. The new album is Half Smiles Of The Decomposed. Read more about the end of an era at:

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT FROM GUIDED BY VOICES

For those unfamiliar with the lo-fi shenanigans of GBV and its beer-guzzling ringleader Robert Pollard, check 'em out at Allmusic.com. You can download 2 more recent songs at Epitonic, and a few of their albums are available on iTunes. I can't really do justice to the band and their incredibly prolific output here. Suffice it to say that they helped define indie rock music in the 1990s.
