Film At 11: Boston Spaceships

Bob Pollard’s Boston Spaceships return August 2 with double album Let It Beard (Guided By Voices, Inc.). The 26-track LP, the band’s fifth in its three-year existence, features guest appearances by the likes of Colin Newman (Wire), J Mascis (Dinosaur Jr), Steve Wynn (Dream Syndicate), Mick Collins (Dirtbombs, Gories), Dave Rick (Phantom Tollbooth) and Mitch Mitchell (GBV). Says BS multi-instrumentalist Chris Slusarenko, “It’s difficult to make an album under what I call the ‘mushroom cloud’ of Guided By Voices. Especially now that the reunion tour is happening. But we worked really, really hard on this one, and it’s important not just to myself and (drummer) John (Moen), but to Bob as well. He’s fond of saying, ‘I used to be in Guided By Voices, but I’m in Boston Spaceships now.'” Watch the trailer for Let It Beard below.
