LP WAREHOUSE FIND!!!  - Revolver, in bed with the Guided By Voices family since 1994, is pleased as punch to exclusively offer Robert Pollard's brand new material. After amicably departing Merge Records after 4 albums in two years, this will be Pollard's only proper "Robert Pollard" full-length for 2008. At 10 songs and 35 minutes, it's an extraordinary rock tour-de-force. Robert Pollard Is Off To Business sports Todd Tobias' cleanest and meanest production yet, giant songs and riffs that pack a wallop, and arguably Pollard's finest singing ever captured on record. For Pollard, whose albums normally run 15-25 songs, this 10-song work (the majority of the songs 3:30 or longer) is a departure from form. Since freeing himself of a band in 2004, his albums have each had very distinct and varied flavors, and his creativity has flowered.   "Weatherman and Skin Goddess" takes the listener back to a time when Rock Radio ruled and bands could have 5-minute-plus hit singles. "Gratification To Concrete" is a classic catchy Pollard rock anthem, or is it a Pollard catchy Classic-Rock anthem? He's definitely turned up the Rock 10% and the Classic 11% on this album.   Extraordinarily influential, Pollard is not just a founding father of indie rock, but in the long run will prove to be an important part of rock history, with a significant oeuvre that branches from The Who, Peter Gabriel-era Genesis, Wire and The Clean.    "Since his much-adored band closed down, it seems that nothing has changed for Pollard, who endures as the perpetually prolific, massively tuneful, beer-swigging king of pop." - Amazon.com
