Published Apr 01, 2005So you're usually the life of the party, eh? Just two shots of rum and you're Robin Williams, Dave Chappelle and Seinfeld all rolled up into one? Well, guess what. Your friends are getting tired of the speed-freak antics, screams of "I'm Rick James, bitch" and monologues about in-flight meals. It's time for some new material and Robert Pollard of Guided by Voices is gonna give it to you, live and uncut. Relaxation of the Asshole is a colourful collection of Pollard's characteristically drunken stage banter, recorded throughout GBV's extensive touring history. Now you can own and rehearse such instantly vintage bits as "Whiskey Shits," "Space Tractor" and "What Is Tricky Woo?" Available in an edition of 500 through www.robertpollard.net and released via his own one-off Yuk Yuk Motherfucker label, Relaxation of the Asshole could very well be that source of comic relief your social life's been needing.
