Robert Pollard: Guided by Vices

According to billboard.com, Robert Pollard is getting into the porn industry (well, soft porn):

"Guided By Voices called it a career with a two-show blowout late last month in Chicago, but frontman Robert Pollard is quickly moving forward. Beyond his usual cavalcade of projects, Billboard.com has learned Pollard is even in negotiations to be involved in a hush-hush soundtrack for a soft-porn film to be lensed by a major Hollywood director."

And more Pollard news:
"To kick-start his solo career, Pollard assembled recordings of his best-known alcohol-fueled stage rants and recently released them under the name "Relaxation of the A**hole" in a limited run of 500 vinyl copies via his Rockathon imprint.

Next up will be a Pollard solo single, "Zoom," which will arrive on 7-inch vinyl and CD single via Fading Captain on Feb. 28 for online orders and April 11 via traditional retail outlets. A March 29 online/April 11 retail release is also penciled in for a colored vinyl LP version of GBV's 1986 album "Forever Since Breakfast," which will be limited to 1,000 copies.

May 9 will bring a six-song EP from Moping Swans, which features Pollard teamed with former GBV bassist Greg Demos and drummer Jim MacPherson, plus guitarist Tony Conley, from Pollard's pre-GBV metal outfit Anacrusis. Pollard describes the music here as "jagged" and more "post-punk"-oriented than GBV's recent output."

He's doing about a million other things too. I think Pollard is addicted to making music. The guy just never stops!
