I missed out on getting the first one on vinyl, and now Pollard has released his second helping!
Meet the King: Asshole 2. It’s the second comedy (read: stage banter) album from Robert Pollard. It’s available now on Yuk Yuk Motherfucker Records. Meet the King is the follow up to 2005’s Relaxation of the Asshole. Recorded mostly during the final Guided By Voices tour, you get to hear Bob’s routines on family (“Fuck you Dad!”), offer advice to the youngsters (“we got any college kids out there looking for jobs? Get wasted when you do your interview!”), take on modern music (“Three years ago I thought Alien Ant Farm was the worst it could get. Now I look back nostalgically on Alien Ant Farm”) and even examine his own career (“I’m Burt Bacharach in reverse”).
It’s a VINYL ONLY – Internet only/(modern day) fan club only release…you know for the fans, for fun…because they like to have it and Bob likes to give it.
Order yours! I think they are limited to 500 again…
