Here’s a new feature where we highlight our favorite song titles from the fantastic and prolific Robert Pollard. A new one every weekday!
Lifeguards is Robert Pollard and original Guided by Voices guitarist/songwriter Doug Gillard. “Paradise Is Not So Bad” shows up on the second Lifeguards record Waving At The Astronauts, which came out in 2011. That recording session marked the first time that Pollard and Gillard worked together after the first Guided by Voices break-up in 2004. Guided by Voices re-formed in 2010 and broke up again last month.
Thanks to the impressive Guided by Voices database for the information that makes this feature possible.
