GUIDED BY VOICES

DEVIL BETWEEN MY TOES

SCAT


Format: LP
Cata No: SCAT81
Barcode: 753417008113
Devil Between My Toes was the debut album by Guided By Voices,
originally self-released by the group in February 1987 in an edition
of 300 copies. Disillusioned by the lukewarm reception to the band’s
debut EP the previous year, Robert Pollard resolved that this record
would be conceived for an audience of one: “(it) is strictly for me and
me only. Because no one’s going to buy it, no one gives a fuck, but
I’m still gonna do it. So I might as well put only what I want on it, for
me. An album for me.”
Even amongst the 30-odd proper GBV albums, Devil Between My
Toes remains unique, and not simply because it was the first to be
released. Much like its out-of-focus cover photo of the mean rooster
next door (Big Daddy), the album’s vibe is dark, minimalist, and
mysterious. Most of the album was recorded as a trio, and it contains
more instrumentals than any other GBV album, but like the best LPs in
their catalog, the sequencing renders these tracks essential to the flow
and mood of the LP. While there are the expected Brit Invasion hookfests sprinkled throughout, we’re also treated to career highlights like
the monolithic “A Portrait Destroyed by Fire” (Tobin Sprout’s first
GBV appearance) and “Cyclops,” a track that would be right at home
on Vampire On Titus had it been recorded more crudely.
