ROBERT POLLARD

NOT IN MY AIRFORCE

GUIDED BY VOICES, INC.


Format: LP
Cata No: GBVI67
Barcode: 655035086712
Guided By Voices Inc. is more excited than a bucket of photoexcited
electrons to announce the 20th anniversary reissue of
Robert Pollard’s first solo album Not In My Airforce. Originally
released by Matador Records on September 10, 1996, the
album includes several songs that have become fan favorites
and staples of GBV live shows throughout the years: “Psychic
Pilot Clocks Out,” “Flat Beauty,” “Quicksilver,” “Get Under It,”
and “Maggie Turns To Flies,” among others. Other album tracks
have inspired a band name (“Release The Sunbird”), a music
blog (“The Ash Gray Proclamation”) and a record label (“Prom
Is Coming”). We’re pretty sure that at least one British nuclearmissile-
equipped submarine has been named after “Parakeet
Troopers,” but MI6 refuses to confirm.
The vinyl version of the album includes a six-song seveninch
single, which was the original plan in 1996, before the
bean-counters insisted on combining the bonus songs with the
CD and LP. These bonus songs (“Party,” “Did It Play?,” “Double
Standards Inc.,” “Punk Rock Gods,” “Meet My Team,” and
“Good Luck Sailor”) swelled the original release to 22 songs—
not that there’s anything wrong with that. Everyone can agree
that more Bob is good. The charming, good-looking, recordbuying
public would like to hear NIMAF as both God and Bob
originally intended.
This is a landmark recording in the Pollardian corpus, in
that it both presaged the flood of solo albums, side projects, collaborations,
and line-up changes to come, and established the
precedent that Robert Pollard, whether solo or in concert with
his Dayton, OH, pals, is a flat-out miracle worker of songcraft.
