Robert Pollard (Ex-GBV) Launching Single Series With Two New Albums

Former Guided By Voices frontman Robert Pollard is launching the Happy Jack Rock Records Single Series in conjunction with two new albums that will be simultaneously released Oct. 9 via Merge.

The 7-inch vinyl singles will be issued every month for a year, beginning June 22 with “Rud Fins” b/s “Piss Along You Bird.” Each A-side will be a song either from the upcoming albums “Standard Gargoyle Decisions” or “Coast to Coast Carpet of Love,” while the B-side will be a non-album cut.

Fans can purchase the ingles individually or as a complete collection exclusively via Pollard’s official Web site.

The release of “Standard Gargoyle Decisions” and “Coast to Coast Carpet of Love” follows a typically prolific year for Pollard, who in 2006 issued the albums “From a Compound Eye” and “Normal Happiness” via Merge.
