Pollard and Sprout Come Together as Airport 5

Robert Pollard is one crazy-ass workoholic. Not content to put out just five or six albums per year, he has reunited with his Guided By Voices guitarist Tobin Sprout as another band, Airport 5. Their upcoming full-length release, entitled Tower In The Fountain Of Sparks,will be in record stores later this year. Two limited edition 7" singles of the album track "Under the Stars" have already sold out all prints. And what's more, Pollard and Sprout have mapped out a second Airport 5 record which will be called Life Starts Here,and which will probably come out this year too, because they are just that crazy. In other Pollard-related news, his second current side-project, the Soft Rock Renegades, will be releasing
their debut, Choreographed Man O' War,on July 17th.
