Superman Was A Rocker
This news comes to us courtesy of Rich Turiel and the good people at Rockathon Records. Thanks Rich.
ROBERT POLLARD - SUPERMAN WAS A ROCKER (HAPPY JACK ROCK RECORDS 15)
Robert Pollard's Superman Was A Rocker is a return to old ways for Bob. This mini-album (13 songs, 30 minutes) finds Bob using recording methods that he hasn't engaged in since the old GBV days.
Bob recently poured through a bunch of old cassette tapes of his and found some great instrumentals that he either wrote or co-wrote, and never used. He decided to go into the studio and put vocals (and melodies!) over them. The music spans a 20+ year period
Due to the span of time and body of work from which the clips were accessed, many of the classic GBV alumni appear on this album; Tobin Sprout, Mitch Mitchell, Kevin Fennell, Doug Gillard, Nate Farley.
NOTE: The CD/LP will be distributed world wide by Revolver and will be in stores on JANUARY 29th.
