The Electrifying Conclusion, part V

Play it: Guided By Voices The Electrifying Conclusion (An abridged tracklist)

Let's stay on the Robert Pollard front for now. The last Guided By Voices concert, recorded this past New Year's Eve, was preserved for posterity, and finally sees it's release tomorrow. Clocking in at 240 minutes, the beer-fueled Robert Pollard leads his troop through a couple encores and 63 songs (playlist above has 43 of 'em, lovingly kept in the same order and using live tracks whenever possible.)

For those that have seen GBV (and even those that saw their Austin City Limits performance taped last year,) you know that Pollard and the band puts away a lot of alcohol and part of the attraction is being amazed at how they can even stand by the end. Uncle Bob by the end is slurring his intros and exclamations ("If the guy next to you ever bought a Counting Crows album, punch him in the face!") but you just can't stop the rock from rolling, and The Electrifying Conclusion is the perfect documentation of both Bob's liver and his rock 'n roll guts.
