Earlier this week, Brooklyn Vegan posted a story on the melange of happenings in the world of Bob Pollard. Calling him a “multi-media hit-making machine” the post focused on his new solo record and tour dates, and also discussed his visual art practice, which mainly consists of collage. Bob’s zine, EAT Magazine illustrates these collage skills, and is now on it’s 9th issue, which features works from the art show The Big Hat & Toy Show: The Artwork of Robert Pollard & Tobin Sprout that opens tonight at Bushwick’s The Library is On Fire HQ, run by New York (and Ohio’s) finest — Steve Five, Cory Race, and Travis Tonn.
By poking around on the website, I also saw that Rockathon is placing pre-orders for The Devil Went Home and Puked DVD, which comes out on 11/17. A video scrap book from Bob’s personal archives, The Devil Went Home and Puked collages together live and studio footage ranging from 1994-the present. Pretty excellent sounding, if you are a GB freak, excuse me– GBV motivated individual, like myself.
