Guided By Voices
If you've never heard GBV or aren't sure if you like them or not then stop here. Go get Bee Thousand, Mag Earwhig!, Under the Bushes Under the Stars, Alien Lanes, Earthquake Glue, Half Smiles of the Decomposed...well you get the point.
If however, you heard their Ric Ocasek produced "Do The Collapse" and were disappointed, check out this 9 song EP that came out around the time. 6 songs are produced by Ocasek, but only "Hold on Hope" was released on the full length (a couple songs have appeared elsewhere in earlier rougher forms). If a few of these songs were included on Do the Collapse, it would have been a much better album.
